We have an update for making room reservations for the upcoming APA-KY conference May 9-11 at the Historic Boone Tavern Hotel & Restaurant. The number listed on the draft program is INCORRECT.
Please use this number: 1-859-985-3700. You should speak with someone directly at the hotel – not a call center. If you have booked at another hotel because you were told the Boone Tavern is full – this is incorrect. They will hold our room block until April 17, 2018 and have plenty of rooms available now. So please use this new number, and if you made a reservation elsewhere please try to cancel and re-book at our conference hotel.
Thank you for your patience as we communicate this error!
