Each boxed lunch will include a sandwich, chips, cookie and bottled water. Sandwich choices are turkey, roast beef or veggie. Lunches can be pre-ordered for $19 each through June 30 ($20.43 with tax). Boxed lunches will increase to $27 ($29.03 with tax) on location and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Can I Use My Avon Account to Book a Hotel Room?

No. Booking a hotel requires a credit card, but you may be able to use President’s Points to pay for your stay. 

How Do I Use My President’s Points to Book a Room?

To pay for your room with President’s Points, you will first need to use a credit card to secure your reservation until Points can be verified. Your Points must cover the entire cost of at least one night. You may, however, pay for one night with Points and another night with a credit card.

After you make your initial booking (with a credit card), email AvonRepFest@AvonUSA.com with your name, the hotel you’ve chosen, and your hotel confirmation number. Tell us how many nights you want to purchase with Points. We’ll verify your Points and issue a credit to your hotel booking. If your credit card was charged, it will be credited at that time.

How Many People Can Stay in My Hotel Room?

If the room you book has two beds, up to four guests can stay in the same hotel room at no additional charge. We know how much you love to have an Avon slumber party, so we negotiated this provision just for you!

When Hotels Sell Out, How Do I Add My Name to a Wait List?

There isn’t a wait list available. We do expect RepFest to sell out, and that means the hotels may sell out as well. Another great reason to register right away!

When Will My Credit Card Be Charged?

If you use a credit card for RepFest registration, the charge will appear within 48 hours. If you charge registration to your Avon account, the expense will appear within 72 hours. If you use President’s Points, the transaction will occur immediately.

If your plans change, you’ll need to cancel your room reservation by July 15, 2018 to avoid being charged for the first night’s room and tax.

Can I Extend My Stay at the Avon Negotiated Rate Before or After RepFest?

Yes. Special Avon-negotiated rates are available three days before and after RepFest (July 24 – August 2, 2018) on a first-come, first-served basis. Check availability when booking your hotel stay. President’s Points cannot be used for extended-stay nights.

What is the Incidental Hold & Charge Policy at the Hotels?

Before you head to RepFest, please take a minute to review your hotel’s policy for incidental charges. At all hotels, you’ll be asked to present a credit card for incidental charges when you check in. Be sure to understand your hotel’s credit card hold policy. These policies require a certain amount to be held on your credit card during your stay, which is then credited back to your card after you check out. 

If you have a roommate, make sure you settle your room charges together during checkout at the front desk.

Does My Guest Get a Swag Bag?

Yes! And they’ll love it!

Can My Guest Attend the Training Seminars with Me?

Yes! And it’s an especially great idea to take your recruit leads with you so they can experience how exciting it is to be an Avon Representative!

Are Wheelchairs & Motorized Scooters Available for Rent?

Yes. Motorized scooters and and wheelchairs can be rented from Scoot around Personal Transportation Systems. Call 888-441-7575 or reserve online.

All rentals will be available for pick up at the Franklin Room in the Hyatt Regency Friday and Saturday, July 27 and 28, 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. and  Sunday, July 29 from 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

What Are the Rental Costs for Wheelchairs & Motorized Scooters?

Wheelchairs and motorized scooters must be reserved in advance. A 3-day motorized scooter rental costs $165, and $55 for each additional day. Wheelchairs are available for $25 per day.

Where Do I Pick Up the Wheelchair or Motorized Scooter I Reserved?

Rentals can be picked up at the Franklin Room in the Hyatt Regency Friday & Saturday, July 27th and 28th from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday July 29th from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m..  

 

Which Hotels Provide the Easiest Access to the Convention Center with a Motorized Scooter or Wheelchair?

All hotels are accessible to guests with disabilities. However, if you plan to use a motorized scooter or wheelchair during RepFest, we recommend you select the Crown Plaza, Drury Inn & Suites, Hilton Columbus, or Hyatt Regency as each is connected to the Convention Center and provides the easiest access.

What Should I Wear to RepFest?

While RepFest is a celebration focused on fun and learning, it’s also a business meeting, and we are representing Avon to everyone we meet. That’s why we ask that you plan to wear business casual attire for RepFest. Think typical office attire: nice capris, khakis, polo shirts, collared shirts  and casual skirts and dresses. And of course, Avon fashion is always in fashion! 

Also, RepFest involves a moderate amount of walking this year, so comfortable shoes are a must.

For the Rascal Flatts concert, break out the blue jeans! Wear your Avon colors with pride and choose attire that is sporty and fun.

Late July in Columbus can be a little warm, with daytime highs in the mid-80s F, and lows in the high-60s F. By contrast, indoor venues can be chilly, so dressing in layers is a great idea and will keep you comfy.
