The 2019 conference will be held at the Sheraton and Westin Crown Center hotels. The Sheraton will host the exhibit hall, general sessions, and a few education sessions. The Westin will also host education sessions, in addition to the Saturday ticketed meal functions. The hotels are connected via an indoor sky bridge, making it a quick and climate controlled walk between the two hotels!  ITEEA has secured a special rate for ITEEA attendees at both hotels. The ITEEA block is limited so don't delay! Once the the ITEEA block is full, room rates no longer carry the half-price ITEEA discount. If the hotel declines you a room at the group rate, please notify us at or by calling 703-860-2100. We will make every effort to make the lodging arrangement, but cannot make a guarantee.
