Hotel Reservations

The meetings will take place at the Renaissance Asheville Hotel in downtown Asheville.  The group rate for the meeting is $125 per night (single/double), and government rates may be available for qualified persons.  Each person is responsible for making his or her own hotel reservations.  The cut-off date for making reservations has passed, but rooms may still be available at the hotel's published rates.  Please contact the hotel for more information by telephone at 800-468-3571.  Be sure to mention that you're attending the American Wood Preservers' Association meetings.  To reserve online, click here to visit the hotel's website, then enter your preferred dates and enter the group code AWPAWPA in the "Group code" box to determine availability for the meeting.  Please note that AWPA receives discounts and complimentary meeting room space if our attendees are staying at the host hotel.  This enables AWPA to keep its registration fees at a reasonable rate.

Meeting Registration

Registration is open to members and non-members at the same rates.  Registration entitles one to attend all technical committee meetings and the nightly AWPA hospitality suite.  Meals are not included.  Please note that registering for the meeting does not automatically reserve a room for you at the hotel.  You must make your hotel reservations individually.
