Registration + Hotel Booking

How Do I Register?

If you register between February 12-23, then:

(Please note: Order of registration does not determine the order of hotel booking. Hotel booking times are determined by membership status.)

  1. Register yourself and your group for Cultivate anytime between February 12-23 by clicking here. You’ll be able to purchase your registration package and provide the number of rooms you're interested in reserving. (One person can register multiple people).
  2. Once you’ve successfully registered, starting February 24th, you will be emailed with an exclusive date based on your AmericanHort membership status to book your hotel room(s). This 2-step registration and hotel process eliminates the system congestion experienced in past years.
    1. Using the link provided in the email you will receive, book your hotel room(s) on the designated day. Then you’re done! (One person can book multiple hotel rooms.).

 

If you register on or after March 16, then:

  1. Register yourself and/or a whole group by clicking here. You’ll be able to select your registration package and book hotel rooms all at once. All registration pricing remains the same, and hotel rooms are still available based on individual hotel inventories.

AmericanHort has secured large blocks of rooms at 13 hotels across downtown Columbus. Three hotels have access directly to the Convention Center: The Hilton, Hyatt, and Crowne Plaza. If one of those hotels is your top choice, we cannot guarantee that you will get a hotel room there. We do, however, recommend that you register as an Early-Bird February 12-23 for the best opportunities to secure a room at any preferred hotel location.

If you are comfortable at any hotel and prefer the convenience of a one-step process for registering and booking your hotel room(s), registering on or after March 16 is a great option for you with plenty of hotel choices to pick from.
