2017 AWSA Conference

June 25 – 27, 2017

Starts on Sunday This Year!

This year our AWSA 2017 Conference will be held in the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza.

Award-winning hotel in the heart of downtown Cincinnati

Open since 1931, the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza hotel is one of the world’s finest examples of French Art Deco design. Take the hotel skywalk to various shops and restaurants and walk to the Duke Energy Convention Center. This National Historic Landmark hotel offers 40,000 sq. ft. of unique event space. Dine at Orchids at Palm Court, responsible for making our hotel the #1 Hilton food and beverage hotel in the USA for six of the last seven years.

How to Book Your Room:
Below are the complete instructions.  Remember you can reserve your room now with your credit card. I don’t think your card will be charged yet, and if you have to change later, you can.  I am sure you will have to do so before a cut off date, probably 24 hours, but check online to see.  Don’t forget to add the dash AWSA as described in one of the steps.  See example for this below.
Here are the steps to assist:
  • Go to www.cbaunite2017.com – click on the “Book your Lodging” button (direct link: https://intre.org/?329)
  • Type in your email address at the bottom of the page and select “Next”
  • Choose the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza in the hotel drop down box
  • Choose your room preference (double/double option)
  • Choose your check in date Example:  Sat. June 24 or Sunday June 25.
  • Choose your check out date:  NOTE:  You may want to stay for CBA and yes we will have a booth you can sign up for.  CBA starts June 26 and ends June 30.  If you want to stay for all of CBA, you might check out on June 30th.
  • Make sure the Email confirmation box is selected
  • Type in all occupants names
  • Add a dash AWSA after the first name (see example below)
  • Enter your credit card name, number and expiration date
  • Click confirm / Make sure you receive a confirmation email from “Online Housing Coordinator”. You will also receive the actual confirmation when we receive from the Hilton in June. If you have any issues at all during the process, please email unite2017@arrowhead.fres hdesk.com.
When you begin to list your room’s occupant names, write in the first name, followed by a DASH and the word AWSA.

Van service is $24 per person one-way and $36 per person round trip.  There is a shuttle desk in the airport for all arriving flights, so advance reservations are not required from the airport to the hotel.  However, advance reservations are required from the hotels back to the airport.

UBER is another possibility.  If you are interesting in sharing a ride, announce your arrival time, and see if a sister can meet you to ride together.
