The host hotel for the ECMC is the Marriott Norfolk Waterside. With a phenomenal ECMC rate of just $129 per night, there are few music conferences that are so affordable. Additionally the Marriott is extremely convenient. Most of the ECMC’s main events, including, speakers, panels, The Expo, and more will happen either at the Marriott or steps away at Slover Library. Additionally, the opening night Red Carpet Reception and two parties, all with live music by ECMC artists will be hosted at the Marriott’s Riverview Terrace.

The Marriott’s rooms are excellently appointed and an incredible bargain at this price. Daily parking is available for a modest extra fee and public transportation is available throughout the downtown area. F.R.E.D. (Free Ride Every Day), ideal for quick jaunts in the immediate downtown area and The Tide light rail station is just a block away for longer excursions.

Even if you aren’t travelling from far away consider taking advantage of this great opportunity to stay at one of Norfolk’s finer hotels at a bargain price. Why end a great evening or weekend of shows worrying about how you’re going to get home safely? Stay downtown at a great rate and have fun until you’re ready to call it a night or a weekend. Enjoy the parties, pool, and comfortable public spaces at the Marriott with a few thousand new friends and rising stars.
