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.
