There is a lot to look forward to at the 63rd ACNM Annual Meeting & Convention from a world-class location and a stunning venue to a theme carried throughout the meeting—that honors the legacy of the grand midwives.
Our headquarters hotel is the beautiful Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort and Spa located along the banks of the Savannah River just steps from the Savannah Convention Center. Many of the evening activities for the 2018 Annual Meeting will be held at the Westin. Both the convention center and the Westin are a 2-minute ferry ride from historic downtown Savannah. You can explore the area via one of the bicycles that are parked at the front of the hotel for all guests to use. The Westin also offers 3- and 5-mile RunWESTIN running routes, designed in partnership with New Balance. Take off on your own, or join a group run led by their Run Concierge.
Just across the river, ACNM will have additional sleeping rooms contracted with other hotels to accommodate a variety of tastes and budgets (details coming soon). Enjoy a beautiful and relaxing trip on one of Savannah’s 4 water taxis. They are officially named “the Belles,” to honor 4 strong women—Juliette Gordon Low, Susie King Taylor, Florence Martus, and Mary Musgrove—who shaped the city’s history. These ferries operate 7 a weeks, from 7 am to midnight.
The Savannah International Trade & Convention Center is a superbly functional, architecturally stunning waterfront complex also on the Savannah River. The venue offers large meeting spaces and an easy-to-navigate layout, and is a perfect fit for the ACNM Annual Meeting. The majority of the Annual Meeting events will be held at the convention center, including all workshops, sessions, general sessions, exhibits and the midwifery awards dinner.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
