Hershey Lodge & Convention Center Accommodations –  A warm welcome awaits you at The Hershey Lodge, the beautiful resort that is home to Groom Expo. It is one of the experiences that makes our event so special.

When you enter the lobby, you will be drawn to the massive stone fireplace. Post and beam ceilings, stonework, and comfortable furniture pay homage to Hershey’s rural Pennsylvania Dutch heritage and make this lobby a memorable place to meet, greet, gather and relax. At night, you will enjoy the deluxe rooms, with regional decor and Hershey’s Kisses on your pillow.

Restaurants and lounges offer a varied selection of cuisine. Start your day with coffee from the Cocoa Beanery. Embrace casual dining at Fire and Grain’s Bar or steaks at The Hershey Grill. The Forebay, Bear’s Den and Lobby Lounge are places to “talk dog” or wind down after a day of seminars. Close to The Hershey Lodge, a multi-million dollar spa joins the great amenities.

NOTE: The convention center is not dog friendly. Only dogs used for competition or demos are permitted. Service animals are permitted. The Hershey Lodge abides by the regulations for ADA Service Animals set by the US Department of Justice.

Pets are not permitted at the show!
