SEMC 2022 Annual Meeting Headquarters

The SEMC 2022 host hotel is the Embassy Suites Northwest Arkansas - Hotel, Spa & Convention Center in Rogers, Arkansas. As the official SEMC2022 conference hotel, SEMC 2022 attendees can take advantage of the special SEMC rates of $162 - $199 per night. 

August 10, 2022 update:

There are a limited # of rooms still available in the SEMC room block for most nights at the $162 rate. Additional rooms have been added to each night but had to be contracted at a slightly higher rate per the Embassy Suites. This rate is still lower than the general room rates. You will see all the available room/rate options in the reservation link. If you plan a stay for the entire duration (10/22-10/27) the system will average the best rate available (per the SEMC rates) each night. SEMC is thrilled that room blocks are filling and we appreciate your understanding as we continue to negotiate with the hotel.
