#AWSM2018 Overview

AWSM will hold its 2018 summer convention in Arizona – set for June 21-24 at the Hyatt Regency Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch in Scottsdale.

A 27-acre property, the Hyatt features five dining options, championship golf, tennis courts, jogging/cycling trails, Spa Avania and a 2.5 acre “water playground” – which includes 10 swimming pools, a three-story waterslide, sand beach and beachside putting green. The property is located approximately 20 minutes from Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport.

Convention attendees will be offered a rate of $149/night for singles/doubles, which includes a welcome beverage, complimentary internet, access to Spa Avania’s fitness center, use of the Gainey Ranch Golf Club chipping/putting facilities, tennis courts, bicycles, nightly entertainment and a shuttle with stops at Fashion Square Mall and Old Town Scottsdale. The resort fee is waived for AWSM attendees and the room rate is good three days before and after the convention, based on availability.

The Phoenix area was selected ahead of Los Angeles and San Diego – primarily in the name of providing both attendees and the organization a more affordable experience. AWSM expects to return east for its 2019 summer meeting.

AWSM last met in the Phoenix area in 2013. If you are interested in assisting with the Arizona meeting – contact Lydia Craver (lydia.e.craver@espn.com) or Jenny Dial Creech (jennydcreech@gmail.com).
