PNAIRP 2014 Conference

“Agents of Change:
Data. Demography. Decisions.”

November 5-7, 2014 - Seattle, WA

The 35th Annual PNAIRP Conference will be held in the heart of downtown Seattle, Washington at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel! Located in Seattle's thriving downtown corridor, Sheraton Seattle Hotel is steps away from a multitude of restaurants, shopping, entertainment and the famous Pike’s Place Market. The Seattle conference will deliver an engaging, professional place to learn, collaborate and network with your northwest colleagues. Questions about the conference can be directed to Erin Aselas, PNAIRP Vice President at 425-602-3181 or easelas@bastyr.edu. We look forward to seeing you in Seattle!

If the Sheraton Seattle is full: PNAIRP has negotiated the same rate ($169) with a newly remodeled hotel, Motif, which is only 0.1 miles from the Sheraton. Please book your hotel reservation there if you are still in need! This room block is available until October 22nd or until it sells out.

Accommodations

We are excited to announce that the Sheraton Seattle Hotel will host the 2014 PNAIRP Conference! Sheraton Seattle Hotel is a contemporary urban retreat in the heart of downtown Seattle, Washington.

Online reservations for PNAIRP conference attendees are now available. Deluxe rooms are available at a discounted conference rate of $169.

Please note: Hotel inventory in Seattle is especially tight this week. PNAIRP has set up a room block November 4-9, 2014 for our members. However, once this block is full there is no room for overflow at the Sheraton. It is important you reserve your hotel room by no later than October 7. If we reach capacity at the Sheraton a back-up hotel will be identified but will not be as convenient. Please do not delay. The room is offered at a rate of $169.00 per night.

Transportation & Directions

Sheraton Seattle Hotel
1400 6th Avenue
Seattle, WA, 98101
United States
Phone: (206) 621-9000

Parking:

We have a fantastic location in downtown Seattle that is close to everything: dinning, shopping, entertainment, tourist attractions and the light rail line that goes directly to SEA-TAC airport. At the same time, this downtown location means parking is scarce and expensive. Parking at the Sheraton, for example, is $46.00 per day. We are working to identify less expensive lots within walking distance, but we highly recommend taking bus, train or a taxi into downtown. More details on transportation options are forthcoming.

PNAIRP supports the professional development of its members by providing funding assistance (via reimbursement) for travel, fees, and related expenses to the PNAIRP 2014 Conference as well as other professional development opportunities. Please see the PNAIRP Travel Grant webpage for details.
