This year's conference will be held at the historic Peabody Opera House. The Peabody (formerly the Kiel Opera House) is a long-time performing arts venue in the heart of downtown St. Louis that was beautifully restored and re-opened in 2011. It hosts a 3500 seat main hall and four large side ballrooms and we'll use them all! We are very excited to return to the Peabody in 2014.

The preconference day and conference hotel will be the Union Station DoubleTree (same as in 2013).

The main room block is at the Union Station DoubleTree for $145/night (includes complimentary wifi and $12/night valet rates). Attendees not staying at the hotel can self-park at Union Station during the conference for $8 daily rate.
