The briefings and networking events will take place at the beautiful Fairmont Grand Del Mar, a stunning Mediterranean-inspired resort hotel located in the rolling countryside just outside of San Diego. For clients who will continue on to the fall Yardi Advanced Solutions Conference (YASC) the next day, this resort is conveniently located about 30 minutes outside of downtown San Diego. 5300 Grand Del Mar Court San Diego, CA 92130 A discounted nightly rate of $345 (+ taxes & fees) for a Fairmont room will be offered through September 15. To reserve your room, please call 855-314-2030 or email the hotel directly and ask for the Yardi group rate. Please make your reservations early, as the hotel is expected to sell out.


Most visitors flying to the region will arrive at San Diego International Airport (SAN), about 21 miles from the hotel. Guests will need to arrange travel to and from the airport via car.
