Book your Marriott group rate for BTES

*Wednesday 6/7/17 is currently sold out for conference pricing at the Marriott due to the World Pork Expo. Please check with Marriott Des Moines for availability of rooms Wednesday night at non-conference rates. Conference attendees are encouraged to book at Marriott for Thursday 6/8 – Sunday 6/11 at the conference rate using the provided link. Many downtown hotels are fuller than usual due to the World Pork Expo or are charging higher than normal room rates. Therefore, we have worked to create a more affordable option, please see below.

We are working with Drake University to secure Residence Hall rooms on campus (1.5 miles from conference location). These rooms will be available to conference attendees for $50/night and shuttle transportation to the conference is available. These rooms may be single rooms or “suites” of 4 private rooms around a shared living area–once Drake has confirmed which rooms are available, you will be contacted with more information about specific room assignments.
