Hotel Accommodations: 

Our conference attracts over 400-500 individuals (including attendees, exhibitor reps, speakers and staff). While MHCA reserves all hotel rooms on property at the Samoset Resort, there is still not enough space to accommodate all registrants. With the limited number of rooms available in the vendor block at the Samoset, we are not able to meet the demand for hotel rooms. 

This year, we made a decision to request that all exhibitors reserve a room offsite at one of the nearby recommended hotels. This allows exhibitor reps to secure their hotel accommodations directly and as soon as possible without having to wait for MHCA to determine if space is available. Further, this ensures that companies with multiple reps can all stay together at the same hotel. 

Note: Strawberry Hill Seaside Inn has been a long-time favorite. Rockland Harbor Hotel, and 250 Main Hotel are highly recommended by the Samoset. These hotels are listed on our alternative accommodations listing webpage.
