Shuttle Service
SIGGRAPH 2006 provides complimentary shuttle service between most conference hotels and the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.

NEW THIS YEAR: Shuttle service is available only to attendees who register at official conference hotels through the SIGGRAPH 2006 hotel reservation system. Those attendees will receive special wristbands that allow them to board the shuttle buses. Attendees who are not registered at official conference hotels will be allowed to purchase wristbands. Attendees without wristbands will not be allowed to use the shuttle service.

Group Bookings
For the first time, groups that need to reserve 20 or more hotel rooms can do so in the online hotel reservations system. Please carefully review all the policies and procedures. If you book less than 20 rooms through the group booking service, Travel Technology Group will ask you to provide names and arrival and departure dates immediately.
