The Sheraton at the Reed Conference Center is the conference hotel for CDC 2023. We currently have a block at the Sheraton and have a second hotel ready for a block if the Sheraton block gets close to filling up.
UPDATE: Unfortunately the hotel link will only allow you to book 3 rooms at a time. We have asked the hotel to correct this, but it is likely not going to happen. Here are instructions from the hotel for booking more than 3 rooms at a time:
Email Juliana directly with the subject line “DECA Rooming List – SCHOOL NAME” and include your PO (if using) and have your Tax-Exempt form attached.
