RootsTech Hotels Are Ready for You!

The hotels around the Salt Palace are ready for booking for your stay in Salt Lake City when you attend RootsTech in 2019. The hotels are a really short walk to the Salt Palace, which is a good thing since there is already enough walking inside the Salt Palace. The hotels make great gathering places in the early mornings and late evenings to share your excitement from attending the conference and to connect with others who speak your language (all things genealogy).

The key hotels are the Marriott City Centre, The Hilton City Centre, The Salt Palace Hotel and The Radisson. 

Here's what you need to know including pricing and availability:

RootsTech 2019: Are We There Yet?

I have been ready for RootsTech 2019 since RootsTech 2018. My hotel was booked before the 2018 event was over. RootsTech is the family reunion of the genealogy world. And a couple of days ago, I received notification that I get the honour of being an Ambassador again next year. To say I am excited is an understatement. 

The role of an Ambassador begins now. I will be sharing news as we get it. First up is the news that applications for Exhibitors is now open. 

The Expo Hall is where all of the buzz happens. People pour in after talks and share the excitement about what they have learned. They stops at vendor booths and chat about what is new to assist them in their family history research. They stop by the tried and true vendors to buy merchandise.  They stop at genealogy and lineage society booths to get insight into records or research strategies. They gather for mini presentation. 

If you are interested in being a vendor at RootsTech in 2019, here's the link to apply:
