Our 2019 convention will be held at Albuquerque, New Mexico. The dates are September 16th thru 19th. Participating private cars will arrive and depart on Amtrak’s Southwest Chief.
The Hotel Andaluz will be our convention hotel. This link will take you directly to reservations for AAPRCO’s block of rooms at the Hotel Andaluz. At this time, the hotel is sold out for the night of September 16th. We recommend you make your reservations for the other nights you wish to stay at the hotel, then contact Stephan Gerhardt with your confirmation and your request for a room on September 16th. Stephan will work with the hotel to manage a waiting list for the night of September 16th.
We will update this web page when more information is available.

If you have health conditions that may be aggravated by high altitude, please be aware that the city of Albuquerque sits 5,312 feet above sea level. Likewise, for those traveling on the Southwest Chief from Chicago, the elevation of the Ratón Pass is 7,834 feet.
NOTE: The convention is open only to members of AAPRCO, their family and their personal guests. However, a limited number of tickets for a guided tour of participating private cars will be available for sale to the public.
