2020 Conference Location
The 2020 All and Everything Conference will be held in Salem, Massachusetts at the Hawthorne Hotel from May 13 to May 17, 2020. The location is the same as that used for the 2016 Conference. Salem is one of the early settlements of New England and its history includes the Salem Witch Trials, the development of the China Trade, as well as deep roots in the tannery, shoe, and textile industries.
The Hotel dates back to 1925, sits adjacent to the Salem Common, and has 93 guest rooms. With many restaurants, the Peabody Essex Museum, an historic port, and many activities around the witch trials, there is plenty to do and see within walking distance of the hotel.
It is highly recommended that attendees register with the Hotel as soon as possible. Under the Conference’s contract with the Hotel, attendees may book an additional three days before and three days after the conference dates, and receive the same group rate of $179 per night, plus room taxes (currently at 11.7%). It is NOT possible to register for the Hotel on line and receive the Conference rate.
