Talking Stick Resort™  has something for everyone, but we recognize that some guests would like to avoid the Gaming Area. With the exception of your initial check in that can easily be accomplished. Keynote Addresses and Breakout Sessions will be held in the Conference / Meeting space this year. If you are not staying at the hotel, the East Garage is the closest to the Conference area. Once you have parked in the East Garage, the Conference space is just past the Showroom and Ocean Trail on your right. If you are staying in the hotel and wish to avoid the gaming area, stay to the left to take the walkway that bypasses the casino.

While registering online or over the phone, please mention the “Effective Schools Conference 2017″ or booking code 11207 and receive a discounted room rate. Regular room rate is $304.00. Discounted rate for conference participants is $219.
