Venue and Accommodations

Venue and accommodations


It has come to our attention that scammers are targeting our meeting attendees and exhibitors, attempting to solicit unauthorized hotel bookings. IHW (and their conference planner Conference Solutions) has NOT enlisted the services of a third party to handle hotel reservations, so you should never receive a direct solicitation from anyone asking you to make or change a hotel reservation. Valid emails regarding IHW will come from only. 
Please be aware of any message coming from sources not affiliated with IHW. Avoid interaction with them.


IHW 2023 will take place on the University of Montana campus. Several accommodation options are available to accommodate as many price points as possible. All hotels have negotiated a discounted group rate for attendees. Information on each is listed below. 


For a more economical option, attendees may also choose to stay on the University of Montana campus in residence halls. Staying on campus will also allow you to be just steps away from all workshop activities. Reserving a room on campus will be done as a part of the registration process. Click here to register. 


Staying on Campus


The University of Montana is offering residence halls to attendees at just $400 for a 6-night stay. Rooms will be shared with one other IHW attendee, and roommate requests can be noted at the time of registration. Please note the dorms do NOT have air conditioning.
