We will be returning to the Denver Marriott Tech Center, a recently remodeled, modern venue. This will be our location for the next two years (through 2020). Located near the lightrail, there is convenient access to the airport. You can reserve a room at the discounted conference rate of $129 per night using our event-specific link: HTTPS://BOOK.PASSKEY.COM/GO/RMPAAPRIL2019
RMPA affiliates and members may register personal guests (e.g, partners, family members, dependents) at a discounted rate. All individuals present at the conference must be registered, regardless of age. Children 12 years of age and younger may attend as guests at no cost, but should still be registered through this site. If you would like to register a guest over the age of 12 for one day ($15/day; receptions not included in this price) or for the full three days of the conference ($40), please email Courtney Rocheleau (email@example.com) to register these individuals. Guests who are eligible for student/affiliate or faculty/professional status should register using the standard registration option.
Because RMPA must commit and spend funds in advance of the conference, based upon registration numbers, we are unable to provide refunds due to cancellation, weather-related travel changes, or illness. Refunds may be provided in the case of accidental duplication of registration or similar errors. Please contact Courtney Rocheleau at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about refunds.
We look forward to seeing you in Denver for a vibrant and thought-provoking meeting!
