What is the hotel deadline?

AAPM&R is proud to offer discounted rates for Annual Assembly attendees exclusively with these hotels. Reservations are made on a first-come, first served basis. The cutoff date for discounted hotel rooms is October 11, 2021.

Is the Music City Center accessible? What about other conference locations?

AAPM&R conferences are ADA compliant. We strive to take the appropriate steps required to ensure that no individual with a disability is excluded, denied services, segregated, or otherwise treated differently — in person or virtually.

Due to travel restrictions as a result of COVID-19, Academy staff was unable to travel to Nashville to conduct the accessibility assessment that we typically make available to our attendees prior to the launch of registration. However, this assessment will be conducted in July 2020 and made available to our attendees in August. In the meantime, if you have questions related to accessibility, please do not hesitate to reach out to Customer Service at or (847) 737-6000 for assistance.
