Conference Hotel

“The Ultimate Desert Oasis in Scottsdale,” the AAA Five-Diamond Fairmont Scottsdale Princess provides the perfect setting to enjoy al fresco living in the blooming Sonoran Desert. As in the Native American tradition, you’ll live in harmony with nature through vast open spaces, lushly landscaped grounds, regal Saguaro cacti and a burning orange sun sinking behind the majestic mountains that will inspire and energize you. From the rich purple hues of the desert sunset to the green agave plants and coral pinks and butter yellow of blooming cactus flowers, the natural palette at play around the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess is one of the most unique and stunning in the world.

ABI has negotiated a special conference rate of $249 a night single or double occupancy. Reservations may be made only once you have registered with ABI. Upon payment of the conference registration fees, you will receive a hotel link at checkout. Rooms are held on a first-come, first-served basis. ABI cannot guarantee anyone a room after the specially rated ABI block is filled. The room block is available until October 30, 2023.
