Why Is It Important to Stay at an AZA Recommended Hotel?  

     You'll be able to network easily with other conference attendees. You'll be able to get to all of the conference events quickly and easily.  You'll have a better conference experience overall.
    AZA has looked at a number of locations and evaluated the needs of attendees as well as the need for conference meeting space.  Based on a guaranteed number of attendees staying at the recommended hotels, the hotel and Convention Center has provided discounted rates and incentives for conference attendees.
    If AZA does not meet the contracted sleeping room commitment, the hotel will charge AZA for the missing revenue.  Unfilled rooms can cost AZA thousands of dollars which can apply pressure to increase the conference registration fees to offset these costs. Please support the conference and the AZA by staying at official conference hotels.  We think you will find the increased networking opportunities, quality hotel services and amenities, and proximity to events and meetings very beneficial!
