Why Stay at ATRI Host Hotels?
Staying at ATRI host hotels offers great networking opportunities to meet your colleagues and make new friends. When you book your overnight room in the Aquatic Therapy block of rooms, we are able to guarantee a certain number of overnight rooms at the hotel and that reduces the overall costs associated with producing the conference. These savings allow ATRI to offer competitive registration fees and the services that are included with those fees, such as hands-on pool education. And you can’t beat the convenience to run between your overnight room, the pool and lecture room when staying at the host hotel.
