why you should stay at the gaylord national resort and convention center

Between pre- and-post conference workshops, early morning sessions, networking lunches and receptions, the Plastics Recycling Conference will offer around-the-clock opportunities for business building. All of these exciting events will be held exclusively at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center. To get the most out of the conference we recommend you stay at the host hotel, where thousands of recycling professionals will be an open door away. By securing your hotel room in the official housing block, you allow the conference to return to the most popular cities and avoid costly hotel penalties if the conference is unable to fill the hotel rooms contracted. Your room reservation at the conference host hotel ensures lower registration rates for future conferences.
