Connections Housing is the only approved, official housing vendor for the Training Conference. Unauthorized housing companies may be contacting you advertising cheaper rates and may imply or claim an affiliation with the Training Conference.  These unauthorized companies aggressively pursue attendees to book hotel rooms through their company at supposedly significant discounts. Unfortunately, some past attendees have fallen prey to these companies and have either been: relocated with little or no warning, lost their significant deposits, not received the guest room nor the hotel they thought they had booked. Reservations made through an agency other than Connections Housing will be at your own risk.  If you are contacted by another housing service trying to sell hotel rooms, please notify Training Conference Housing Management at before providing any company or personal, credit card or banking information.

Reservations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and discounted rooms are only available while blocks last, so be sure to book soon!

The San Diego Convention Center sits right on the sparkling San Diego Bay and across the street from an exciting downtown. Take time to explore the dining and urban excitement of the historic Gaslamp Quarter. From suave steakhouses and eclectic ethnic fare, dinner clubs to sultry jazz bars, more than 100 restaurants are situated within blocks of each other. Stroll along the waterfront. Enjoy unique boutiques or deal-laden shopping outlets. It's all within a few steps of the Convention Center and nearby hotels.

Why not extend your stay before or after the conference? San Diego is home to world-class attractions, so there's something for everybody! The newest downtown additions include PETCO Park, home to the San Diego Padres, and the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum, situated along sparkling San Diego Bay. You also can spend the day at the lush 1,200-acre Balboa Park, one of the nation's largest cultural complexes and home to the largest concentration of museums west of the Mississippi.
