Innovations 2023 participants must make lodging reservations directly with Tempe Mission Palms. DO NOT BOOK A HOTEL ROOM with companies such as Convention Expo Travel or Convention Housing Services. These companies are contacting conference participants directly and advising that they officially represent the conference.

These companies are IN NO WAY affiliated with the Innovations Conference or the League for Innovation. The League for Innovation is not responsible for reservations made with these companies.

Help keep conference costs low by booking at the conference hotel. The League pays a penalty when rooms in the pre-negotiated block are not used, and these penalties could result in higher fees for future conferences.

Reservations are to be made online using the custom reservation portal. By booking your room through this portal, Innovations 2023 participants are guaranteed to receive the discounted room rate. There are a limited number of guestrooms available at the discounted conference rate, which includes complimentary basic wireless Internet in guest rooms and use of the hotel fitness center.

Tempe Mission Palms is less than four miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and right across the street from the Mill Avenue/3rd Street Valley Metro light rail station.
