Conference > Housing

MTA Conference housing opens Jan. 15!

DowntownNearly 900 rooms have been reserved at the Amway Grand Plaza,  JW Marriott, Courtyard by Marriott and Holiday Inn Downtown in Grand Rapids for the upcoming MTA Annual Educational Conference & Expo. This premiere event, being held April 1-4, 2019, brings together more than 1,000 township officials for three days of unmatched educational and networking experiences that you simply can’t get anywhere else.

To reserve a room in MTA’s Conference housing block, you must first register as a Conference attendee. Conference registration opens January 2, 2019 – nearly two weeks before housing opens – so you have plenty of time to register before the opening of housing. Here are some tips on how it all works:

          • Each reservation MUST have a personalized housing code in order to be processed. Housing codes will be sent after you register for the Conference. 
          • Online registration is the fastest way to register for Conference or book a room! Links will be posted here when available.
          • Conference registrants will receive their housing code individually via email, at the address MTA has on file. Those using the online system should receive the email immediately upon registering. (Registrants without an email address on file will be faxed their housing code; please allow 48 hours for processing or contact MTA to add your email address to your account.)
          • If you do not receive your housing code within  one (1) hour of registering online, please contact MTA to confirm your email address is correct.
          • Prefer to reserve a room via the paper form? Simply write your code on the form before submitting it. (Forms submitted without a code cannot be processed.
