Great Weather is Just the Beginning...

San Diego is the nation's 8th largest city, and the host venue of the 2018 conference, the San Diego Convention Center, is at the heart of it all, just a short walk from award-winning dining venues, shopping and nightlife in the historic Gaslamp Quarter.

Book Your Hotel

You must register for the conference before you are eligible to reserve a hotel room in the official conference hotel block at the Argentum rate.

Please note: OnPeak is the only authorized housing company associated with the Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference. We have received reports that other companies are posing as official travel vendors for Argentum and may contact you offering housing for your trip. They are not endorsed by or affiliated with this conference and entering into financial agreements with such companies can have costly consequences.
