The 25th Anniversary SAGEEP calls for a very special setting:  The Tucson Hilton El Conquistador is that special, spectacular location. 

In the tranquil high desert of southern Arizona sits The Hilton Tucson El Conquistador  - 500 acres of paradise where the views are breathtaking, the facilities elegant, the service exceptional and the recreation endless.  The El Conquistador exemplifies the best of southwestern hospitality. This will be your chance to visit to one of the country’s most historic cities and one of its most spectacular resorts, fitting for the 25th Anniversary commemoration of SAGEEP!

Ground Transfer Service Offered:

Round trip transportation between the Hilton El Conquistador and the Tucson International Airport is available for $50.00 per person, inclusive of tax, charged to your guest room for your convenience.  (Gratuity is at the discretion of the registrant.)  Transportation needs must be arranged in advance by printing, completing and emailing the SAGEEP Transportation Request Form to the email address listed or complete and email the Excel Transportation Request form.  Participants will be emailed a confirmation upon receipt. 

On Sunday, March 25 and Monday, March 26, the Hilton shuttle will depart from the Tucson International Airport on the hour and half hour between 1:00pm and 9:00pm as needed.  SAGEEP attendees arriving during these times who have not made prior arrangements,  will be accommodated if possible.  Attendees arriving outside this time frame, (or on other days), will be met at their flight arrival time.

Departures from the resort to the airport are scheduled on the hour and half hour, approximately 2 hours prior to the flight departure time and will be pre-determined once the Transportation Request Form has been completed and emailed (please use email address on form).
