Pharmacy Education 2023 - Hotel and Travel


AACP has blocked rooms at the Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center for the 2023 AACP Annual Meeting, July 22-25, in Aurora, Colorado for attendees to enjoy exceptional lodging during the meeting. After registering for Pharmacy Education 2023, you will receive information to book your hotel accommodations, including room rates, a direct reservation link and more.

To book a room in AACP’s hotel block, please reserve your room online rather than over the phone. A link to reserve your room in AACP's hotel block can be found in the confirmation email you received immediately after registering. If you did not receive your registration confirmation email or cannot locate it, please reach out to and a new one will be sent to you as soon as possible.

Staying at the designated AACP hotel will allow AACP to keep your registration fees at the current rates. If AACP does not achieve a minimum number of overnight accommodations, the price of services will increase registration fees for future programs. Without your support, AACP faces significant financial penalties for unused sleeping rooms.

    Important Notice

    Please be on the lookout for scams. There are “convention services” companies that sometimes contact conference attendees to solicit hotel reservations for public-facing meetings. These companies have not been authorized to handle our housing and are not affiliated with our meetings in any way. While it is not illegal for a travel firm or booking agent to solicit potential customers, it can be difficult to determine the legitimacy of offers from these companies. We strongly recommend that you do not provide credit card details to any phone or email solicitors. If you do reserve through one of these companies, you will likely not have a reservation when you arrive in Aurora. Please reserve your rooms directly through our registration and hotel process per the instructions in your confirmation email to avoid becoming the victim of fraud.

    As of June 7th, the AACP room block at the Gaylord Rockies is sold out for the night of Thursday, July 20th. We apologize for the inconvenience.

      COVID-19 Safety

      Effective December 1, 2022, AACP will no longer require proof of vaccination status or a negative test result to attend any AACP in-person meetings or events. Instead, AACP expects attendees to take responsibility themselves for following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on measures to reduce infection from COVID-19 and to protect against severe complications.  AACP urges all members to follow the CDC’s recommendation that everyone over age 12 receive the updated bivalent vaccine as soon as they are eligible to do so (e.g., 2 months past their last shot). 

      AACP monitors the most recent guidance on vaccines provided by the CDC and will update our policy accordingly if that changes substantively. All registrants will be notified via email of any changes. AACP appreciates the understanding of its members and partners as we seek to provide valuable, timely face-to-face programming while prioritizing the health and safety of attendees and our host communities.

      For any questions regarding COVID-19, hotel and travel, meeting programming or general inquiries, please contact Emily Williams, Meetings Coordinator, at 703-739-2330 ext. 1012.
