Hotel & Travel Details


The Summer Seminar has been cancelled. We look forward to seeing you at the 2021 Summer Seminar, July 18-21 at The Fairmont Le Château Frontenac in Québec City, Canada.

Given the unfolding public health concern posed by the Coronavirus and the critical leadership roles our members play on campus and in their home communities related to care delivery and prevention, AACN has moved to cancel the 2020 Summer Seminar. This difficult decision was made after much deliberation, a review of the latest evidence, and in the best interest of our members’ health and safety.

Full refunds of the registration fees will be processed for the cancelled events within the next 30 days. We urge you to contact your hotel to cancel your room reservation at least 72 hours in advance of when you were scheduled to arrive. For additional questions regarding these conferences, please reach out to

Please register for the event before reserving your hotel room!
