Why Stay at a Conference Hotel?

→ More Networking!  
You'll be in the center of conference activity, that's why!  You'll be able to network easily with other conference attendees. You'll have a better conference experience overall.  

→ The Ride is on Us!  
AWEA provides shuttles to the convention center from the official conference hotels that are not within walking distance.

→ Best Hotels, Lower Rates!  
The conference staff have taken their role of finding a conference site very seriously. Based on a guaranteed percentage of attendees staying in official conference hotels, AWEA is able to negotiate with the hotels to provide discounted rates from their normal charges.

→ Support AWEA! 
Support the conference and the association by staying at the official conference hotels.  Unfilled rooms can cost the association thousands of dollars which can apply pressure to increase the conference registration fees to offset these costs.
