Our headquarters hotel is the Marriott Grand St Louis and is located steps from the Convention Center at 800 Washington Ave., St. Louis, MO 63101. The hotel will host several events, including the Gin Summit on Saturday 9/17 and the Welcome Guild Tasting on Wednesday 9/14.
We have worked hard to keep rates affordable at $169 per night (+ tax). You can make your reservations via THIS LINK.
This rate ends on August 15, 2022.

As a reminder, we do not use a third-party reservation company to handle reservation, nor do we sell our attendee lists. If you are contacted by someone purporting to work for us and attempting to sell you an “ADI attendee list” or able to get you better prices at our HQ hotel or nearby hotels, those are scams. Kindly forward that email to our attention.

  4. No printed schedule. You can download the conference app at ADICONF. If you have the app from prior years, the conference schedule and floor map have been added.

Meals and Welcome Tasting

Setting will be dictated by health measures in place.

Exhibit Floor

  1. The exhibit floor will not be carpeted to avoid soft surfaces and ease daily cleanup
