OFFICIAL CONFERENCE HOTEL

The luxurious Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort is the official event hotel, conveniently located just minutes from the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (though no hotel airport shuttle is available). Revel in the warm and inviting atmosphere of the resort as you enjoy 27 acres of all-suite accommodations, extensive amenities and unique dining, nestled along the Phoenix North Mountain Preserves and just minutes from Scottsdale, the Biltmore corridor and downtown. The Spanish-Mediterranean architecture couples with the bold Southwestern landscape to create one of the area’s premier resorts. As with previous years, hotel reservations and availability are on a first-come, first-serve basis as the room block is limited. Once the room block is gone, it’s gone and regular room rates apply.

We encourage attendees to reserve their room early. In fact, we recommend you reserve a hotel room NOW if there is even a slight chance you’ll be able to attend; you can always cancel the room later. The discounted room rate for this all-suite property is $215 + tax/night; online reservation instructions are below. Please be advised that last year room inventory went quickly, and the room block ends prior to the March event. REMINDER: This conference is the throes of the Cactus League spring baseball training!

OTHER AREA ACTIVITIES

cactus league

It’s MLB Cactus League time! Spring Training baseball under the warm Arizona sun has been a tradition for devoted fans since 1947, when just two teams, the Cleveland Indians and the New York Giants, came here to prepare for the rigors of the long regular season.

Today, 15 teams train in the Phoenix metropolitan area in the greatest concentration of professional baseball facilities found anywhere in the United States. For visitors, the Cactus League couldn’t be more convenient, with short drive times between ballparks and a full range of hotel, dining and shopping amenities. Truly, the Cactus League is the premier destination for baseball lovers.  For more information, schedule and tickets, click here.

Things to do in Phoenix!  Things are different in the desert. The sky is bigger. The stars are brighter. The sunsets stop you in your tracks. America’s sixth-largest city still has real cowboys and rugged mountains and the kind of cactus most people see only in cartoons. Phoenix is the gateway to the Grand Canyon, and its history is a testament to the spirit of puebloans, ranchers, miners and visionaries.  Click here to explore!
