Location

Cincinnati

Join us as we head to Cincinnati, the Queen City, in February 2024! Our conference will be held at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza once again.

Open since 1931, the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza hotel is one of the world’s finest examples of the French Art Deco style and is a charter member of the Historic Hotels of America. With rare Brazilian rosewood paneling, two-story ceiling murals, and original German silver-nickel sconces, its beauty and charm are greatly admired.

Use the link below to reserve your room by Feb. 9 at 11:59 p.m. (Deadline extended from Feb. 2). If you wish to reserve your room by phone, you may call the hotel directly at 1-513-421-9100 or at 1-800-HILTONS.  Please, notify them you are with the APPE annual conference to receive the conference rate (Group Code: APPE). We have seen some unsanctioned third party sites promoting low rates. Do not use any sites you are unfamiliar with--Hilton has informed us that there are more than a dozen illegitimate sites that may be attempting to scam credit card numbers.
