Remember Your Water Bottle

OLC is committed to being green where possible. In lieu of providing bottled water at the breaks, we will have water coolers available throughout the conference space and during the breaks.  Bring your own, use a glass provided, or purchase an OLC Hydrate Water Bottle onsite at the conference registration desk for $7. 

It you are a guest staying at the Swan or Dolphin, the 2 bottles of water in your room each day are complimentary. Be sure to take advantage of those bottles of water as well!
