Book a Room!

Lodging is not included with registration. Make sure all your attendees have time to book a room. PLMA's preferential rate of $210 a night at The Scottsdale Plaza Resort ends as soon as we fill the room block.

Ask for the 41st PLMA Conference rate.

The PLMA rate is good for the dates April 17-24, 2020 until sold out--these dates will automatically appear in the booking window at the link above, but you may choose your dates on the next page. If you receive a sold out message when trying to book, try a different set of dates, as the pre- and post-days may sell out earlier than the main conference. If that happens, call the hotel directly at 1-800-832-2025 and ask for the 41st PLMA Conference rate.

Taxes, fees, and optional gratuities are not included in the preferential rate. PLMA never uses an attendee or exhibitor lodging provider. We provide you the ability to book directly, and cannot be responsible for promises made or broken by unaffiliated third parties.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided each day along with some light refreshments and two receptions. Dinner is on your own.
