The upcoming 2015 IAP2 North American Conference is now, officially, the best-attended yet! As of July 20, we had crossed the 200 mark, and registrations are still coming in with just over 6 weeks to go! Thank you to all who have registered so far, we look forward to seeing you – and many more – in Portland in September.
Of course, this surge in attendance also means that rooms at our official Conference hotel, the DoubleTree by Hilton in Lloyd Center, are getting scarce. As of July 17, there were fewer than 40 rooms still available at the Conference rate (starting at US $149/night), and those are just for Wed. Sept. 9 and Thursday, Sept. 10. All other nights are now sold out at the conference rate.
If you are booking for the Wednesday and Thursday night only, please go to the hotel’s IAP2 North American Conference webpage, available 24/7. If you want to book both the Wednesday/Thursday at special conference rate and other nights at hotel rates please contact the hotel directly at 503-281-6111. Their reservations department is open Monday – Friday from 8 AM to 4 PM. The IAP2 North American Conference group code is NA9 – please refer to this code when booking.
Participants are responsible for their own hotel reservations.
Did you know … that your registration fee includes a pre-conference workshop? On Wednesday, Sept. 9, you can take part in “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion – Portland-style” – a series of interactive presentations on the way the issue of inclusion is addressed in Portland and the state of Oregon as a whole. For IAP2 members not attending the conference, it costs US $75 to take part; $100 for non-members not attending the conference.
Don’t delay! As of August 1st, regular prices to attend the Conference take effect, going up US $100 to $625.00 for IAP2 members and $775 for non-members. Register now and take advantage of those early-bird rates!
Students! You only have a few more days to apply for a scholarship to attend the Conference! The deadline is July 31; find out more information here.
