MAC 2023 Conference attendees will have the opportunity to stay in the Courtyard by Marriott hotel in the Downtown/Junkanoo Beach area for a discounted conference rate. Discount code to follow.

Courtyard by Marriott Nassau Downtown/Junkanoo Beach

W Bay St, Nassau, Bahamas

Just a 9 minute walk to the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas & a 13 minute walk to the Central Bank of the Bahamas, two of our host institutions!

Located in the heart of Downtown Nassau, within walking distance of restaurants, cultural sites and entertainment, our conference hotel (insert name) is only steps away from our host venues, making it easy for attendees to have an enjoyable conference experience. While it is also possible for attendees to find their own accommodations, we recommend using (insert hotel name), which, in addition to having a special discounted hotel rate, will also be more convenient than most AirBnB or VRBO that require renting a car or relying on Nassau’s public transit system.

COVID-19 Safety Info

Proof of vaccination against COVID-19 is required. Additionally, we will follow all masking and social-distancing requirements of the Bahamas’s national and local government as well as of any venue where conference activities will be conducted.
