YOU and AAFCS benefit when you stay on-site at this conference hotel:

  1. AAFCS has contracted rooms with the hotel to provide you special discounted rates on your behalf. If our contracted housing obligations are not met, we pay substantial penalty fees to the hotel. This will require a higher increase in registration rates for future conferences to cover such penalties.

  2. The hotel provides AAFCS with complimentary meeting space, which keeps the registration fees low. However, we must fulfill the contracted room block in order to receive the space complimentary.

  3. We are able to monitor attendance through our room block. Staying at the hotel ensures we meet our room block enabling us to be better prepared. This helps with cost containment.

  4. AAFCS's business value to a city is measured by the total number of hotel rooms actually booked inside our contracted room block, as well as our spending on other services at the hotel. Booking within our block helps us to maintain our strong business value, which is critical to our negotiations with future cities and cost-containment efforts for future AAFCS Annual Conferences.
