Registering for the 2023 National Arts and Crafts Conference

Reserving an Arts and Crafts Conference Package with the Grove Park Inn

To reserve your Grove Park Inn room during the conference weekend, please call (800) 438-5800 and press 1 for group reservations.

Stay tuned for more information on the 2023 National Arts and Crafts Conference February 17th – 19th, 2023!

Make sure you are talking to group reservations and that your reservation is for the National Arts and Crafts Conference. If you would like a specific room, wing or side of the hotel, please make sure you mention these details when you make your reservation.

Please note: Like so many businesses post Covid, the Omni Grove Park Inn is still working to fill vacant positions within the hotel. For that reason, the 35th National Arts and Crafts Conference has had to rely on, to a greater degree than in prior years, using the National Omni call center, where agents handle booking for more than 50 Omni properties. Even though we have given them explicit instructions on our conference and the GPI, their agents may not be knowledgeable yet in the different room options available to us. Rest assured the staff at the Grove Park Inn is aware of every reservation frustration and is working with us here at our office to ensure that every reservation request is made. If you experience any issues while making your reservations for the conference, email us at as soon as possible and include the name of the reservation agent who took your call. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding!

The Arts and Crafts Conference Package includes:

  • Lodging Friday and Saturday nights;
  • Continental breakfast Saturday and Sunday mornings;
  • Dessert and coffee social hour Friday and Saturday nights;
  • Use of the Grove Park Inn Sports Center;
  • Entry to all three exhibitor shows on Friday, Saturday and Sunday;
  • Entry to all of the seminars, discussion groups, demonstrations, Grove Park Inn tours, and special exhibits for all three days;
  • Conference tote bag and The Conference Catalog.

Purchasing a Conference Events Pass if you plan on staying elsewhere

For those of you who have plans to stay somewhere other than the Grove Park Inn, you may buy a Conference Events Pass (which still gets you access to the seminars, small group discussions, demonstrations, complimentary access to the Arts and Crafts shows, a tote bag and the conference catalog) through calling our office or ordering online.

If you’d like to order online, you can select one or two passes from the drop down menu below and click the gold PayPal button. After your payment is through, you can return to this page and fill out this form for your contact information.

Please note: If you choose the option of purchasing a pass through the National Arts and Crafts Conference office, you may notice the receipt from “Flower Bridge Design LLC.” This is Kate Nixon’s (the director’s) LLC where all financial operations of the National Arts and Crafts Conference will be handled.
