Meet Us in Mobile!

Our 2019 Conference destination has so much in store

Activities  |  About the City  |  Venue  |  Hotels


CERF 2019 will be held at the Mobile Convention Center in Mobile, Alabama. Mobile has long been the cultural center of the Gulf Coast and you'll find an authentic experience found nowhere else in the southern United States. As the oldest city in Alabama, Mobile has a rich past spanning centuries. French, Spanish, British, Creole, Catholic, Greek and African legacies have influenced everything from architecture to cuisine, creating a miniature melting pot in the Port City.
