HOTEL INFO

Since CRA last hosted our conference in Cherokee, Harrah's has built The Cherokee, an entire new 725-room hotel tower, full conference center, and several new restaurants adjacent to their main property. The property has also gone smoke-free! With its stunning Smoky Mountain backdrop, state-of-the-art meeting facilities, wide range of dining and entertainment options, and Code Green initiative, we are looking forward to a great 34th Annual Conference & Trade Show! Listen to our podcast, Upping the Ante on Sustainability to hear more about The Cherokee Convention Center!

CodeGreen:
Harrah’s Entertainment has incorporated environmental sustainability into all of its properties and activities, integrating a fundamental commitment to the environment into its everyday business operations. Read more about their CodeGreen Initiative here.
