    Carolinas EIA Chapter 2018 Annual Conference - POSTPONED
    Kingston Plantation, Myrtle Beach, SC

    Due to the impending arrival of Hurricane Florence and the safety concerns associated with the storm, the Kingston Plantation is not able to accommodate the Carolinas EIA 2018 Fall Seminar in Myrtle Beach this week. We will not be holding the Carolinas EIA 2018 Fall Seminar over the dates of September 12-14.

    If you have reservations in the Carolinas EIA Hotel Block, your reservations will be automatically cancelled. If you have any questions about your reservations, please call the hotel directly at 800-876-0010. 

    As soon as the storm has passed and the condition of the property has been assessed, we will determine dates for a reschedule of the seminar. It is the desire of the Carolinas Chapter of EIA to reschedule the 2018 Fall Seminar over the new few weeks. We will hold all payments that have been made for this conference until a new conference date has been selected.  At that time, we will address all payment issues and we will issue refunds to any attendees and exhibitors that might not be able to accommodate the date change.  

    Thank you for your patience in this matter and we hope everyone will stay safe during this storm!
