It is a good idea to choose a preferred event hotel.  If possible, set up a group rate.

Why do you want to pick a preferred hotel

  • Facilitates ride sharing
  • Facilitates room sharing
  • Makes giving directions easier
  • Makes out-of-town guest's lives easier

Why do you want to select only one hotel

  • One location for networking
  • Easier for leadership team

What do you look for in a preferred hotel

  • Convenient to event location
  • Clean and well maintained
  • Safe neighborhood
  • Reasonable price
  • Complimentary breakfast
  • Preferred free, on-site parking

Hotel Group Contract

  • You should not need to guarantee rooms
  • You should not need to be liable for any hotel costs


  • Let out-of-town speakers know about hotel information asap
  • Contact the Hotel at least 3 months in advance, Friday nights can be challenging
  • Post hotel information on event site asap

Some of your speakers will reserve their own rooms via the discount hotel sites.
