Book inside the official ASLA room block by October 2 for discounted registration rates. Discounted rates have been negotiated for meeting attendees at five Chicago hotels.
Staying at one of our official meeting hotels not only provides you with great rates, it also provides you with a discount on registration. A registration discount of up to $75 will be taken at check-out for online registration. Individuals who reside within a 50-mile radius of McCormick Place and do not require a hotel room will automatically be eligible for the discounted registration rates. Mileage will be calculated based on the address on file at the time of registration. Rates are for single or double occupancy. Rates listed do not include applicable state and local taxes. In order to access ASLA group rates and to receive the discount on registration, housing must be booked through Experient, ASLA’s official housing bureau.
Shuttle bus service will run from the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers, Hyatt Regency Chicago, Loews Chicago, and Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile to McCormick Place. The Hyatt Regency McCormick Place is located on the McCormick Place campus, therefore shuttle service will not be provided to and from this hotel.
Warning: Look Out for Housing “Poachers”
When ASLA secures sleeping rooms at hotels for the Annual Meeting and EXPO (commonly referred to as room blocks), we research the properties to make certain that our attendees and exhibitors are adequately accommodated. These room blocks are established to ensure that rooms meet our standards and are offered at a discounted price. ASLA partners with Experient, the official registration and housing provider for the 2015 Annual Meeting, to ensure the best experience for our attendees, speakers, and exhibitors.
Room poaching is a practice carried out by third-party companies that act as travel agencies, wholesalers, or destination management companies to solicit attendees, speakers, and exhibitors for room reservations during our convention. The practice of room poaching makes it more difficult for us to meet our room block commitments and exposes ASLA to penalties and increased room rates for future conventions.
Often room poachers or housing pirates may misrepresent themselves as ASLA’s official housing provider and attendees and exhibitors may be contacted by fax, email, or phone with offers for cut rate housing. The poacher might inform attendees, speakers, and exhibitors that the hotel room block is “sold out,” and that if you do not book with them immediately, you may not get a room. Additional deceptive tactics may include:
- Room pirates/poachers may distribute forms or promotional materials that appear to be issued by ASLA.
- Room pirates/poachers may not deliver on their promises. When attendees or exhibitors arrive at the hotel, reservations are sometimes non-existent or the hotels are not conveniently located.
- Room pirates/poachers may seek to represent themselves as being affiliated with ASLA by illegally using our name or logo.
Don’t be misled! If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room for the ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO who is not a representative with Experient, please get as much information as you can and pass it along to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are suspicious or would like verification of legitimacy, please feel free to contact Experient directly at: 800-424-5249. The safest way to secure your hotel room is directly through www.aslameeting2015.com.
