Lodging and Sessions

All sessions will be at the conference hotel, the Broyhill Inn and Conference Center, located in Boone, NC on the campus of Appalachian State University. A block of 50 double rooms has been reserved for Friday night, and a few rooms have also been reserved for Saturday night. The rate will be $79.00 a night. We have been asked by Broyhill to try to make reservations before Friday, February 4.

Because of the high number of quality submissions, there will be an overflow hotel 1/2 of a mile away at the Sleep Inn. The rate is $89, and we have reserved 20 rooms for Friday night and 20 rooms for Saturday night. This block of rooms will be held until February 18. Other hotel options include the La Quinta Inn and Suites and the Hampton Inn.


Directions to the Conference Center can be found here. For those flying to the conference, the nearest airports are Greensboro (GSO) and Charlotte (CLT). If you rent a car at the airport, the drive to Boone is roughly two hours each way. (Of the two airports, Greensboro is much smaller and easier to navigate.) Another option from the airport is Coach America, though its schedule is limited, and reaching the departure point in Charlotte or Greensboro requires a taxi or shuttle.
