Why should I stay at the host hotel?

A few big reasons!

1. Keep your registration fees low!
By staying at the official Heritage Livestock Conference host hotel, you're helping to keep registration fees down! The hotel provides discounted meeting rooms for the Conservancy if, and only if, we meet the required minimum guest rooms in our hotel contract. Otherwise, the Conservancy must pay for meeting rooms as well as for each room we fall below the minimum—and registration fees will go up! So stay with us and save!

2. Networking opportunities!
By staying at the host hotel, you're at the epicenter for everything during the Heritage Livestock Conference. Social and networking opportunities abound, and you don't even have to go anywhere to find them. They're all right here!

3. Save on transportation!
If you're not staying at the host hotel, chances are good you'll have to spend some money on a taxi or parking to come over for some of the events. Why bother? Stay here and be at the center of it all.

  • All educational events will be held at the host hotel
