Why Davenport? CABTRAC scours the country, east coast to west, looking for the best venues to hold our Annual Retreat. Only properties with outstanding accommodations and customer service are selected. Combined with airport proximity and local attractions, the Hotel Blackhawk, a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel, is providing an uncompromising experience for our members. We hope you will join us in flyover country this fall for some mighty Mississippi hospitality in Iowa’s Front Porch!
