Fun in the Sun at the 2021 AANP Fall Conference

Fall Conference Home

Hundreds of nurse practitioners (NPs) plan to convene in Hollywood, Florida, for AANP’s first in-person conference since 2019 — see what awaits!

The 2021 AANP Fall Conference is just two months away, and AANP is excited for this opportunity to bring The Voice of the Nurse Practitioner® to the sunny beaches of Florida. Known as “Florida’s Hollywood,” the city has one of the nation’s best beach boardwalks, a budding arts district, shopping and dining in the historic downtown, countless beachfront sporting activities and much more — truly something for everyone.

Beachfront Accommodations

The 2021 AANP Fall Conference offers a selection of hotels with discounted pricing for those staying within the AANP housing block. Located on or within walking distance to the beach, the AANP housing block hotels are the perfect place to enjoy the warm waters, soft sand and ocean breezes of the Atlantic coast.

The special conference rate of $239 (single/double) plus taxes and fees per night will be honored for conference registrants and their guests for reservations covering lodging between Monday, September 20, and Monday, September 27, based on availability. All reservations must be made by Friday, August 13, at 11:59 p.m. ET, but space is filling quickly. Book your room today to take advantage of this exclusive rate.


Sunny day in Hollywood, Florida, with palm trees on the beach and visitors on the Broadwalk

Located between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Hollywood allows visitors to get a feel for the Florida of yesteryear. Built in the 1920s, the beachfront Broadwalk retains its charm and timeless appeal — while being an excellent pathway to enjoy the variety of cafes, sports on the sand and water or the timeless beauty of the coastline.

Just a short drive away, the brick-lined downtown area is pedestrian friendly, allowing you to stroll beneath the palm trees as you shop for one-of-a-kind goods at unique boutiques, step into art galleries or stumble upon one of the many festivals and street markets. As you wander, keep an eye out for more than 20 contemporary, outdoor murals throughout the downtown area.

Arrive early to conference or stay late to enjoy the culture of the Sunshine State — or head out for a night on the town after the day’s continuing education (CE) sessions conclude. View the 2021 AANP Fall Conference schedule at a glance to start planning your trip!

After you select your conference CE sessions, you may find time to step away from conference during a lunch break or to catch up with your NP colleagues over dinner. In that case, rest assured that you’ll have your choice of fine dining, casual eateries and everything in between, located within easy walking or driving distance of the Diplomat Beach Resort, the site for the 2021 AANP Fall Conference.

Be in the heart of it all by exploring the options along Hollywood Boulevard and Harrison Street. If you prefer a view along with your meal, there are plenty of restaurants along the beach and the Intracoastal Waterway.


The historic downtown Hollywood, Florida, with quaint buildings and classic cars along palm tree-lined streets

Do you love the outdoors? You can go for a solo morning jog along the Broadwalk or bring a group of friends to an open beach volleyball court. You can plan a self-guided walking tour of the downtown to view historic theaters, retail stores, administrative buildings and cafes. You can even take advantage of one of the many bicycle, paddleboard, ocean kayak or personal watercraft rental services for a day of fun in the sun.

For something a little more relaxing, visit the ArtsPark at Young Circle to enjoy 10 acres of green space, promenades and a fountain designed by internationally acclaimed artist Ritsuko Taho. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and spend an evening enjoying a variety of events and festivals. Alternatively, let the sounds of music lead you to explore exciting nightlife — including a 1920s-style speakeasy.

When your day is done, hail a taxi, use a ride-sharing mobile app or hop on the Sun Shuttle by Circuit, an electric shuttle service that has stops at designated locations throughout the downtown area. You can hail a passing Sun Shuttle and ride for free or use the Ride Circuit mobile app to request a ride for $1.
