How does NOAH pick its conference locations?

Through the years, NOAH has had many wonderful cities host our biennial conference. But you may have wondered, how does NOAH pick a conference host city/hotel?

Selecting a conference city/hotel involves several factors that impact the overall cost of attendance to our community members. NOAH’s desire to make the conference accessible to as many members of our community as possible is one of the reasons that we strive to rotate the conference location to eastern, middle, and western regions. Hotel partners in a host city need to have the capability to house our space-intensive conference program at an affordable price, with reasonable guest room rates and a willingness to work with us on food and beverage costs. Host city factors to consider include airlift, ground transportation, and proximity to amenities and attractions.
