The 2019 CAM conference will take place at the Parc 55 hotel in downtown San Francisco. The hotel is adjacent to the Powell St. BART station and within walking distance to 11 museums. Many conference activities will take place at the hotel’s 4th floor meeting space. There are also abundant public transit options to points throughout the SF Bay Area via MUNI and BART near the hotel.

We have reserved a room block at the Parc 55 for the group rate of $219/night (single or double occupancy). To secure a reservation, you must provide your credit card information and the first night’s deposit (refundable up to 72 hours before your reservation).
