The 2019 PRIA Annual Conference is set to convene on Monday, August 26, and run through Thursday evening, August 29, in Colorado Springs, CO. The hotel headquarters is The Antlers, in the heart of downtown Colorado Springs.
Colorado Springs was founded in 1871 by General William Jackson Palmer and soon his idea of a first class hotel came to life. The Antlers, A Wyndham Hotel, opened in June of 1883. At that time, the population of Colorado Springs was approximately 5,000 people. General Palmer named the hotel “The Antlers” as it housed his large collection of deer and elk trophies, which was the envy of many. The original hotel burned to the ground in 1898 and was rebuilt in 1901 before being torn down in 1964 for a second rebuild, opening in 1967.
A tentative schedule of programming can be found in the right margin. For your planning purposes, the first official event of the Annual Conference will begin on the evening of August 26, with the closing event held the afternoon of August 29.
The Antlers is sold out, but a small block has been reserved at the Hilton Garden Inn, a five-minute walk from the conference headquarters. To avoid one night’s room and tax charge, reservations must be cancelled at least seven (7) days prior to scheduled arrival. Hotel agrees to make attendees aware of cancellation and no-show fees at the time of reservation. No-shows will be treated as cancellations and charged one night’s room and tax. Hotel will accept name changes up to seventy-two (72) hours prior to scheduled arrival without penalty.
Overflow hotel reservations are available using the link in the right margin.
