Event description

Description

The Automotive Body Parts Association (ABPA) is pleased to announce that it has chosen the Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa located in sunny San Diego, CA as the location for the annual ABPA Convention to be held from April 24–27, 2018. After numerous site visits by the ABPA Convention Committee members, the Hilton San Diego was chosen for its ideal location, modern meeting space, and tremendous value for our attendees.


Did I mention the location? The hotel is situated on an 18-acre park with lush gardens and rolling lawns, just steps from the beach. Also on site is an expansive pool and wonderful dining options.


The ABPA was also able to secure a rate of $189 per night. For those interested in bringing their spouse, discounted registration packages are available!
