Hotel Reservations

We recommend that attendees stay at Kalahari Resorts. For MQTC attendees, Kalahari has offered a room rate of $119.00* per night (30% discount plus daily resort fee of $11.95 is waived). Contact the Kalahari Resorts at 1-877-KALAHARI (1-877-525-2427) and be certain to request the "Capitalware's MQ Technical Conference" discount. We have outlined all of your hotel room options here.

Each Kalahari room comes with 4 water park passes**, so bring your family with you. Your family can go to the water park (and other features) and you can go to MQTC - it's a win-win!!

* Kalahari only guarantees room availability and price until August 24th, 2018. After this time, MQTC rooms are open to the general public for booking. Hence, do not delay in making your hotel reservation.

** Make sure when you book your hotel room that you state how many people will be staying in your room, as you only get the number of water park passes that are listed on your hotel reservation even though you are entitled to receive 4 free waterpark passes.

Note: Ask for a room in the Sands section of Kalahari, as it is close to the convention center.

Warning: The Desert room is a long walk to the convention center.


You can find directions to the Kalahari Resorts on their site. If you need to fly into the region, Cleveland's airport is convenient. You can use Tom's Limo Service for a shuttle. Taxis are available from the Kalahari's main hotel lobby. Call Kalahari's Concierge at 419-433-7200, ext. 34089 for scheduling and pricing.

Event Check-In

The check-in desk will be open in the conference area of the Kalahari Sunday (September 23rd) afternoon 5:00PM to 8:00PM and Monday (September 24th) morning 7:30AM to 12:00PM (noon).

Refund/Cancellation Policy

Unavoidable events happen and we understand that. You can cancel your registration at any time up to the day of the event; however, registration fees for the event are refundable only if you cancel at least 30 days prior to the event. After that no refunds are issued.

IMPORTANT: You must handle hotel cancellations separately through the Kalahari (or whichever hotel you made arrangements with). We canít help you with that!

Losing out on MQTC would be a really awful thing, so we're happy to offer a Send A Geek In My Place policy. You can send somebody to MQTC in your place if something's preventing you from attending. Please send an email to support@mqtechconference.com and state who will be going in your place.
