Lodging

Lodging

IETA has worked with three area hotels to provide special rates for vendors and attendees. Whether you select one of the hotels below or another hotel of your own choosing, IETA requests that you fill out a hotel information card at the IETA registration desk. Filling out this card helps to offset the cost of the IETA conference as the number of hotel rooms utilized in the area for the conference affects the price that IETA pays for the conference facilities. Your help with this is very much appreciated.

Please be aware that we have a limited number of rooms held each night. The Grove Hotel will only hold our room block until January 13th. If you wish to stay at The Grove Hotel utilizing the IETA rate, you must make your reservation before that date.
