Why stay at the conference hotels?
Our conference headquarters hotel is the center of conference activity. Staying at hotels in the AMWA hotel block enables you to network easily with other conference attendees and quickly get to the program and functions or back to your room for a break.
Your support in staying at one of the AMWA contracted hotels listed above also helps keep the conference costs down, which directly affects your registration fees. AMWA contracts for the best possible room rates each year and is required to guarantee a predetermined number of sleeping rooms. If the association does not fill the contracted room block, the hotel can charge an attrition fee, which will result in higher registration fees at future conferences. Individuals who choose to stay outside of the block receive the benefit of the conference facilities, but do not contribute to the necessary commitments that allow AMWA to block appropriate function space for our meeting. Therefore, we encourage you to book your room through our blocks at one of the hotel listed above and identify yourself as an AMWA conference attendee.
