Stay at a Conference Hotel and be a part of it all…

You will have a better Convergence® experience if you stay at a conference hotel. The close proximity to the convention center and the ability to network with other attendees makes this an easy choice. In addition, by staying at a conference hotel you help keep future Convergence® rates low. The hotel rates that HGA has negotiated include many benefits for you and for HGA. Based on the number of rooms in the block of the rooms; the hotels, convention center and visitor bureau provide complimentary meeting room space, exhibit space, staff accommodations and reduced food and beverage charges – savings that are passed on to attendees through HGA’s registration rates. If the Convergence® conference is unable to meet its room-block commitment because attendees are making reservations at other hotels, HGA is charged a fee to make up for lost revenue. If this becomes a trend, HGA would be forced to increase the registration fee and cut services.

Hotel reservations should be made from the direct links below or by calling the hotel directly and mentioning you are attending the Handweavers Guild of America’s Convergence® Conference. Rates do not include taxes or parking. Parking fees and amenities vary by hotel.
