Over the last week, we have secured rooms at special club-rates at three more host hotels in downtown Greenville to keep up with demand. Rooms are available at both the Hyatt Place and the Holiday Inn Express for $159, plus taxes with free parking. Also, the Courtyard hotel is now available for $179 a night—all are located in close proximity to the original host hotel. You can reserve a room at one of these properties by registering for O’Fest first, then following the booking link sent in the O’Fest registration confirmation email.
When it comes to events, a third session of the BMW Performance Center’s half-day program was added and is filling up fast with 61 of the 100 spots already accounted for. If you are thinking about attending the Thursday morning session, you’ll want to register soon. In addition, the performance center has expanded the ladies’ driving program to accommodate up to 48 participants, after the initial 30 spots filled quickly. Right now, 37 of the 48 spots have been spoken for.
All of the dinners recently hit capacity, but we’ve worked with our host venues to expand the seating at these events. Everyone who was on the waitlist will be able to attend now and additional tickets have been made available through registration as well.
As with previous years, many events don’t require a specific ticket, just O’Fest registration, and are able to handle higher capacity numbers. Examples of those events include the Dinan Beer Garden, vendor hall receptions, tech talks, the BMW Performance Center festival on Friday afternoon, and the BMW CCA Headquarters grand opening, sponsored by Hagerty, on Saturday.
To learn about everything planned for O’Fest and to see the full schedule of events, make sure to visit the official website here. We look forward to welcoming you to the world center of all things BMW this October 15-19!—Chris Hennecy
