For Volunteers

Conference Locations

Booking Assistance Available

If your chapter has an event for which you expect a minimum of 20 total guestroom nights or more, CUPA-HR’s meetings partner ConferenceDirect can provide hotel contracting and site selection assistance at no additional cost.

ConferenceDirect can only assist you if you’re at the beginning of the process. If you already have a contract, ConfenceDirect will not be able to assist your chapter.

To take advantage of this service, contact our primary account executive at ConferenceDirect before you contact potential hotels for information.
