Hotel Information

SMART has secured a discounted hotel room rate of $319 per night and will be waiving the $30 per night resort fee for the SMART Annual Convention attendees.   The discounted rate will be available until February 1, 2019 or until rooms are sold out (whichever comes first).   This rate will be honored three days pre and post meeting date (subject to availability).  We advise members to book your room as soon as possible!

Book your room by contacting the hotel at 888-332-0160 (you must mention SMART to receive the discounted rate) or book online HERE. 

The importance of reserving a hotel room at the SMART convention hotel cannot be stressed enough. SMART staff makes every effort to keep attendees expenses at the meeting, registration fees, and hotel rooms for the meeting as low as possible. They work hard to negotiate the best hotel rates and to make the best use of your registration dollars to keep the meetings affordable. SMART staff encourages all participants to register for the meeting. When anyone pays the registration fee and reserves a room at the group hotel, he or she is helping to support not only SMART 2018 Annual Convention, but also future conferences.

Sponsorship Information 

We are currently offering various sponsorship options for the Annual Convention.  Your sponsorship assures you the valuable recognition within our industry and assures the continued quality programming that the SMART Annual Convention is known to produce.  Without the support of sponsors, we would not be able to provide quality networking and educational opportunities at our SMART events.
