Registration & Housing

2019 Convention Housing


Reserve your hotel room through SHAPE America’s official housing bureau, Experient, to enjoy the following benefits:
  • Comfortable, quality accommodations at lower, negotiated rates. Official hotels have guaranteed that SHAPE America’s rates are the lowest they will offer over the convention meeting dates.
  • Close proximity to the Tampa Convention Center. Stay close to “home” to take full advantage of everything the convention has to offer, including more networking time with colleagues and friends.
  • Assistance from Experient should any problems arise with your reservation — from the time you book until your stay is completed.

Accommodations must be booked online through Experient during the convention registration process (opens in early November). Reserve your hotel early for the best chance of getting your first choice! Rates cannot be guaranteed if not booked through our official housing bureau. 

(Rates do no not include applicable taxes.)

Looking for a roommate to share hotel expenses?

To communicate directly with potential roommates, post your arrival/departure dates and preferred hotel on Facebook. If you are a SHAPE America member, you may also post requests in our online community, mySHAPE America. Please note that you and your potential roommate(s) are responsible for booking your hotel room and for all financial obligations relating to your stay. SHAPE America assumes no responsibility for making hotel reservations or for any changes or problems that may arise as a result of this roommate arrangement.


SHAPE America has been made aware that service providers have contacted a number of individuals who are attending our conference, and either (a) offered to assist in securing hotel accommodations, or (b) stated that because the official event venue has been overbooked, they will locate alternate hotel accommodations (for an additional fee), or (c) stated that they are able to sell copies of the attendee list. Please note that they do NOT represent SHAPE America, nor have we authorized them or anyone else to contact attendees on our behalf.

To Be Safe

Event attendees should not share any personal information, including credit card information, with these groups and should follow the booking instructions on SHAPE America’s Housing & Registration page to make all hotel reservations.


Booking with unknown service providers exposes you to the risk of incurring fraudulent credit card charges as well as not actually having a valid reservation for the event. If you are contacted by a fraudulent service provider, please be sure to inform SHAPE America at
