PAII's conference is alive and well, and planning is going full speed.
YES - we have a change of venue that is more advantageous to you, the attendees and exhibitors, offering more space for a bigger trade show and more rooms for educational sessions. And, the pricing structure is permitting us to offer great conference registration rates!
The Palmer Events Center, located in the heart of Austin, is a unique & beautiful convention center, with views of the downtown skyline.
Being in a convention center (not a hotel) is a first for PAII, and we are especially pleased that this provides attendees - whether innkeepers, aspiring, interim, or exhibitors - an opportunity to support (and enjoy) our own industry by staying at the local B&Bs and Inns! We do apologize to those of you who received a room cancellation notice from the previous host property - we were unaware that they were doing this, but should have checked with them. (If you wish, it would be your option to stay with that property at their rack rate)
We've invited the Austin inns to add their lodging to our lodging list, which will also include the 2 hotels within walking distance and other options. We'll be posting the list on our website, and in the upcoming Member's Monthly / Innkeeping Now.
'See you in Austin in January!
Kris Ullmer, PAII Executive Director
