Hotel Reservations

Hotel reservations for the Riverhouse will be made online starting July 24 using a unique URL. To receive the unique URL, you will first need to register for the conference. Once your registration is complete, you will receive an email confirmation with the unique URL as well as further instructions on how to reserve your room. We will also have several satellite hotels available for those who cannot get a room at the Riverhouse. The information about reserving rooms at the satellite hotels will also be included in the confirmation email. 

PLEASE NOTE: this email confirmation with the unique URL will automatically be sent to the email address of the person who is being registered. You can send the email confirmation to additional recipients. At the bottom of the Order Confirmation page, you will see the option to send the confirmation email to another person. If you are registering on behalf of someone else and would like a copy of the confirmation and the unique URL, be sure to send yourself a copy of the confirmation. If you are registering multiple people, only one confirmation is needed.
