Hotel Information for the 2018 National Conference

Please make your hotel reservations now.  President’s Day is a very busy holiday in Orlando with many visitors.  Also, the Daytona 500 race and a very popular marathon are at the beginning of conference week.  We anticipate flights and sleeping rooms will fill up early, so we encourage people to make their plans now.

On Thursday, ACA’s daily conference activities end at 5:00 p.m. to allow attendees to spend time at Disney Springs® or select parks, if they wish. Guests at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort may purchase “After 5:00 p.m.” tickets directly from Disney.  If you are interested in purchasing special “After 5:00 p.m.” tickets for Thursday evening, watch the sidebars on the hotel reservation site.  Several promotional items cycle through, including a link to special ticket prices and options. Daily conference activities resume Friday morning.

The success of the ACA National Conference depends on registrants and exhibitors staying at the contracted host hotel to offset the sizable costs of producing the conference and exhibits. ACA cannot meet contracted room obligations if registrants and exhibitors reserve rooms in other area hotels. The risk of incurring tens of thousands of dollars in financial penalties (attrition fees) increases with each registrant who stays outside the host hotel. If we do not meet our guarantee, we will have to pay penalties, which add to the costs of the conference and in turn increase registration and exhibitor fees. Sustaining a financially successful conference for ACA means ensuring that both conference registrants and exhibitors have a quality, meaningful event that will reap benefits for you and the profession for years to come.
