“Why should I stay at the conference hotel???
It’s cheaper for me to stay somewhere else.”

The SSSP office often gets asked this question,
so we wanted to explain why staying at the SSSP not only helps individual members,
but is good for our organization as a whole.

Reasons to Stay at the Sheraton

  • FIRST AND FOREMOST, it is the center of all conference activities, making it much easier to network, catch up with old friends, make new ones, and to attend sessions, meetings, and functions – including the awards ceremony and receptions.
  • At the conference hotel, you will run into people in the common areas, and sometimes these happenstance interactions can lead to meaningful relationships and opportunities.
  • Staying in the hotel is convenient, allowing you to easily run back to your room to get something you forgot, drop off excess baggage, or just simply to relax in your own space for a bit.
  • When you stay at the conference hotel, you help SSSP meet its room obligation, which reduces overall conference costs. This means we can devote more resources to direct benefits to members.

The following information is all you need to make your reservation. Please do not hesitate to contact the Administrative Office if you need help.
