*New this Year: Conference Registration is now required before you will be allowed to reserve a room within SNA’s discounted hotel room block. Whether registering online or by email/mail/fax, after you’ve submitted your payment and received your order confirmation, you will be given access to the Housing Reservation system, with a unique housing registration link tied to your individual registration. This change in procedure is designed to ensure that a greater number of attendees have the opportunity to book their first-choice hotels on their preferred dates and still receive SNA’s discounted rates.
