Green Line Shuttle
The “cut-off date” for accepting reservations into the discounted room block has been extended until Thursday, September 22, 2011.
The League for Innovation has arranged for a discounted conference rate at the JW Marriott Indianapolis, Indianapolis’ newest hotel. Making reservations outside of the room block through third parties, meeting planners, housing bureaus, or online tools impacts the League for Innovation’s ability to meet its obligations and control attendee registration costs. It also places the League for Innovation in a weaker position to contract for future destinations that will best meet the needs of our members. Please make your reservations directly with the JW Marriott Indianapolis at online reservations or at (800) 266-9432 using “League for Innovation.”
Opened February, 2011, the JW Marriott Indianapolis is the largest in the chain. The newly constructed downtown JW Marriott Indianapolis hotel is steps from White River State Park, the Indianapolis Zoo, and many museums. The JW Marriott Indianapolis is convenient to the State Capitol, Lucas Oil Stadium, and Conseco Fieldhouse, and is in the heart of downtown, world-class shopping, and exquisite dining options.
The JW Marriott Indianapolis’ 34-story glass tower stands at 375 feet tall with 1,005 breathtaking rooms. Room features include signature Revive® bedding, LG® plasma screen televisions and a plug-in panel designed to reduce clutter and streamline multitasking possibilities. Hotel amenities include pool and exercise facilities, fine Italian dining with a unique “wine cube” in Osteria Pronto, and High Velocity sports bar.
The “cut-off date” for accepting reservations into this room block is Thursday, September 22, 2011. Reservation requests received after 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time on the cut-off date will be accepted at the hotel’s prevailing rate based on availability.

Please be warned that if you plan on attending the 2011 STEMtech conference, DO NOT BOOK A HOTEL ROOM when contacted by other companies such as Convention Expo Travel or Convention Housing Services. These companies are contacting conference participants directly and advising that they officially represent the conference. They have done this for other events and attendees have found they are not at the headquarters hotel or they do not have a reservation even though they gave the company credit card information. These companies are in no way affiliated with the 2011 STEMtech or the League for Innovation. They are NOT the official travel agent for the event. The League for Innovation is not responsible for reservations made with these companies. If you are booking a hotel room or have any questions about your reservation, please contact the JW Marriott Indianapolis directly at (800) 266-9432 and use the code “League for Innovation.”
