The HIA has a built-in form on their website to help facilitate the appointment-making process. Those intending to participate can click here to get started.
The event will take place at the Phoenix Park Hotel in DC. Online reservations via the HIA website are no longer available, so interested parties should call the hotel directly for room availability. The group rate discount is no longer available at this time.
