FAQ

  • • MOBIUS, through a generous grant from the State, can only pay for 1/2 of a hotel room for each guest. This means that if you do not share a room with another attendee, you are responsible for paying the other half which is $49.50 (Total cost for a room is $99.00 not including fees and taxes).
  • The meals at the conference will be pretty substantial, but you will most likely want to bring a little extra cash for snacks and other extras. Note from the organizers: Some of us are vegetarians and made sure there will be options, but let us know if you have other dietary concerns.
  • You'll want to have some dough for after-hours things.

Need something official to be reimbursed for your expenses?
