Official IMPC Hotel

SME has negotiated a block of rooms at conveniently-located hotels for XXXI IMPC 2024.

Reserve Your Room Through the Official Housing Block

By booking through our official channels, you are able to take advantage of the additional perks SME has negotiated for conference attendees. In addition, you ensure that SME is able to offer the best rates for registration by keeping overall costs contained.

The Gaylord National Harbor is offering reduced overnight rates exclusively for XXXI IMPC attendees. A limited number of rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis for $229 per night plus taxes and a mandatory $27 resort fee per night. Once that room block is full, a reduced rate of $299 per night plus taxes and a mandatory $27 resort fee per night will be available.

The only way to register for either of these rates is through an exclusive link that will be emailed with your registration confirmation. These reduced rates are not available by contacting the Gaylord National Harbor directly. If you have registered and paid in full for IMPC, but have not received your email confirmation with the housing link, please contact SME Customer Service at 303.948.4200 or to request.

To reserve your hotel room and receive the best rates, register to attend IMPC 2024.
