Hotel and Travel Information

The conference will be held at the Salt Palace Convention Center in downtown Salt Lake City. The conference hotel is the Radisson Hotel Salt Lake City Downtown. It is very conveniently located just a few steps from the section of the Salt Palace where our sessions will be held. (Please note that the Salt Palace is very large and our space is located at one end. Other hotels that state they are steps from the Salt Palace may actually be several blocks from our space in the Convention Center.)
