112th Annual Conference - Riverside Convention Center, California
Friday, October 31 - Sunday, November 2, 2014
Our 2014 PAMLA Conference will be held at the lovely, new Riverside Convention Center, in Riverside, California (3637 Fifth Street, Riverside, CA 92501; 888-748-7733) and the Riverside Marriott Hotel at the Convention Center, immediately adjacent (3400 Market Street, Riverside, CA 92501). The closest airport to Riverside, California, for those of you flying in, is the Ontario, CA International Airport (ONT--sometimes referred to as the LA/Ontario International Airport).
We believe we’ve arranged for enough rooms at the Riverside Marriott at the Convention Center, the nearby Hyatt Place Riverside Downtown, and the Mission Inn for all of our conference attendees at extremely competitive rates ($109 a night plus tax at the Marriott and the Hyatt Place; $135 a night plus tax at the historic Mission Inn), but it is possible that we could run out of rooms (Note: Some room nights at the Marriott, Mission Inn, and Hyatt Place are now sold out; there may be some room nights left at these hotels, but perhaps not for all nights--contact the hotels for more information. If you need help, feel free to email PAMLA Executive Director, Craig Svonkin: email@example.com). We strongly encourage you to make your reservation well in advance (We believe the Mission Inn is now sold out at the PAMLA rate, although there may still be some suites available at $220 a night plus tax, but you could call to double-check. There are only a few rooms left at the Marriott at our special rate, but not for every night. However, we have arranged for a few more rooms at a special PAMLA rate at the Hyatt Place Riverside Downtown, immediately next door to the Marriott and the Riverside Convention Center. Once these rooms sell out, PAMLA will not be adding any more rooms. Contact PAMLA Executive Director for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org). The conference begins on Friday morning, October 31st, and ends Sunday afternoon (at approximately 2 pm), November 2nd. Please reserve your hotel room accordingly.
The Riverside Marriott, the Hyatt Place, and the Mission Inn are located right in downtown Riverside, walking distance to a good number of museums, restaurants, coffee houses, and bars.
