The 20th American Trails National Symposium will be held at the Chattanooga Convention Center in beautiful downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee, Nov. 14-17, 2010.

The theme for the Chattanooga Convention Center's recent expansion project is "a living machine" that contributes to the greening of Chattanooga. Unlike traditional meeting space, with dark ceilings that beg to be ignored, the center's sophisticated lighting technology allows natural sunlight directly into the spacious exhibition area. The result: bright, evenly distributed lighting that's not only more visually pleasing, but also brings with it all of the psychological benefits of working in pure, natural sunlight.

The 20th National Trails Symposium has three host hotels:

The Chattanooga Marriott Hotel is conveniently connected to the Convention Center and the Staybridge Suites hotel is located right next door. The other host hotel, the Chattanooga Choo-Choo, is within walking distance. We encourage you to make reservations early, as there are a limited number of rooms at the rates provided below. Mention the group name "National Trails Symposium" to get these rates. The designated cut-off date for all the hotels at their rates mentioned below is October 23, 2010.
