Registration is now open for the 2017 AAN Convention in Washington D.C., the alternative news industry’s largest gathering of the year. Alt news professionals from across the U.S. and Canada will come together to share success stories and camaraderie.

This year’s convention will take place at The Dupont Circle Hotel, located on Dupont Circle in the heart of Washington D.C. and just moments from the city’s historic sights including the National Mall and the Smithsonian Museums.

Host paper Washington City Paper is excited to welcome its colleagues from across AAN and is plotting plenty of D.C.-exclusive mayhem, including receptions at the Embassy of Haiti and the Kennedy Caucus Room on Capitol Hill.

The member early registration rate is $399/person until June 16, after which the rate will go up to $445/person. If you are bringing more than 3 staffers from a single publication, contact Molly Snead at molly@aan.org for info on how to get the $100 rate for additional registrants.

The AAN group rate at the Dupont Circle Hotel is $169/night for a King room or Queen-Queen room (based on availability). The deadline to book at the group rate is July 5. Book your room at www.doylecollection.com/dupontcircle, using Room Block Code ASSO200617.

“We’re thrilled to host this year’s convention in AAN’s hometown,” said AAN Executive Director Jason Zaragoza. “This is the perfect moment for AAN to bring its brand of truth-telling and rabble-rousing to D.C.”
