12th IRLEN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
Houston, Texas, USA
Friday, July 10, 2015 through Sunday, July 12, 2015
Westin Oaks Hotel at the Houston Galleria
It’s time to start planning for the upcoming Irlen International Conference to be held in Houston, Texas, USA, on July 10-12, 2015 (July 8-12 for Directors and Diagnosticians). The venue will be The Westin Oaks Hotel at the Houston Galleria. This is the same venue where we had the 2008 International Conference which was considered a great site by attendees. It is connected to one of the largest shopping centers in Texas and has a variety of international and local stores as well as an ice skating rink and many restaurants offering multi-national menus.
There are TWO Westin hotels at the Galleria, so make sure you make your reservations at the Westin Oaks, 5011 Westheimer, Houston, Texas 77056; Tel: (1) 713-960-8100; Fax: (1) 713 960-6549. We have a dedicated website for reservations. You can make reservations beginning April 3, 2014, up until July 8, 2015. The hotel has undergone a complete multimillion dollar renovation and is just lovely.

Rooms are available from July 7, 2015, through July 11, 2015, for a terrific rate of US$159.00 plus taxes for either a single or double room. All rooms are air conditioned, including all meeting rooms, so bring a sweater or wrap as those meeting rooms may seem cool to you. Guest room air conditioning can be individually controlled.
There are TWO airports in Houston. IAH or Bush Intercontinental Airport is about 20 miles (approx. 33 km) from the hotel and can best be reached by Super Shuttle. Super Shuttle current costs are US$25 each way but may change by the meeting date. We will keep you updated. A taxi will probably cost double. A smaller airport is Hobby (HOU) which mainly handles domestic flights. It is about 15 miles (approx 24 km) to the hotel. Again, Super Shuttle is the best transportation with current cost of US$25.00 each way. Reservations can be made on line at supershuttle.com. Enter the airport code of IAH for Bush airport or HOU for Hobby airport and the destination is 5011 Westheimer Houston TX 77056 for the Westin Hotel.
The general conference begins on Friday morning, July 10, and continues through Sunday, July 12, 2015. This conference is open to all Directors, Diagnosticians, Screeners, and PASS Screeners. We also plan to have a day open to the public. The format will be general sessions with break-out smaller sessions on specific topics. Several of the small group sessions will be repeated to make sure everyone can attend those in which they are interested. [Special Note to Directors and Diagnosticians: Remember, July 8-9 are the training days set aside for you.]
Reservations for the meeting should be made directly through the Irlen Institute Headquarters in Long Beach with payments in U.S. dollars using major credit cards or checks drawn on a U.S. bank.
