Why Book at SNA's Hotels? Each year, SNA works hard to keep your overall conference costs as low as possible. Our group arrangements with the official ANC hotels in Nashville provide members with discounts that allow SNA to keep your hotel rates low and have protective clauses to prevent you from being shut out from a hotel. Therefore, we ask you to book the conference hotels through SNA’s official Conference Housing Bureau, ConferenceDirect.
