This year’s qep’a’ is still months away. It’s too early to predict how the COVID-19 pandemic will affect travel and gatherings. Until more is known and long-term guidance is given, plan as if things will go as scheduled.
The meeting will be in Indianapolis at the Hyatt Place Indianapolis Airport.

Our room rate will be $127/night (plus applicable taxes, currently 17%) for a room with either a King bed or 2 Double beds.

The conference rate is available only until 5:00pm EDT on Monday, June 20, 2020. If you reserve a room after that date, you might not receive the special pricing.
Some of the amenities available at this hotel include:
- Free shuttle transportation to and from Indianapolis International Airport *

To reserve a room at the hotel, either call Hyatt’s Central Reservations at 1-888-478-8955 or the hotel directly at 1-317-227-0950 and mention that you are reserving with the Klingon Language Institute, or make your reservation online using Group Code G-KL27. When using the online link, pay attention to the dates and number of rooms and guests, and use the EDIT button near the top right of the room selection page if you want to change them.
Because activities begin early on Thursday and continue until very late on Saturday, most people plan to arrive on Wednesday, July 22 and depart on Sunday, July 26. The online link given here is preset for those dates and two adults, but the information at the top of the room search can be altered if you need different accommodations.
If you make your own hotel arrangements using a service like Travelocity or Priceline, please contact the hotel to have your reservation listed as part of the KLI conference, so we get credit for the room nights. That’s important for our event contract.
* To take the hotel’s lupwI’ (jitney or bus), call the hotel at 1-317-227-0950 from the airport and they will come to pick you up. The hotel is only 10-15 minutes from the Indianapolis International Airport terminal.
** The free breakfast is only available to World of Hyatt members. If you are not already a member, you can enroll at no cost online or by phone. It is best to do that before you make your reservation, so that you can provide your member ID.
