Our group room rate is $205 per night; you can book at this rate between April 6 and April 17, in case you want to extend your stay a few days in either direction beyond the conference.

The cut-off date for reservations is March 19, 2024. The block is likely to fill before that date, especially on peak nights, so we encourage you to book as soon as you are ready to make your travel arrangements.

Eat and Engage

There are a couple opportunities to meet fellow attendees over a casual meal in Salt Lake City. On Thursday, April 11, or Friday, April 12, join an Out to Lunch group (the one on Friday is geared toward graduate students!). Sign up now or on-site and we’ll put you in groups of 4 or 5.

Also on Thursday, you can join a Dine Around. Facilitators submitted topics for consideration and will make the reservations and lead the group to dinner. Check out the topics, then on-site come to the NCPH registration table to join one. For both Out to Lunch and Dine Arounds you cover the cost of your own meal.
