The number of guest rooms reserved by ASHP attendees and exhibitors determines whether or not the meeting qualifies as a "citywide" convention. Fulfilling this standard requirement enables us to hold our meeting in the cities that meet our space, location, and rate criteria. It also allows us to receive all of the benefits and services reserved for citywide conventions and provided by the hotels and local Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Here are several other extremely important reasons for you to reserve your hotel room through our housing company:
- You’ll have peace of mind that you made a reservation at an official ASHP hotel at the discounted ASHP rate.
- You’ll be provided with complimentary access to the internet in your hotel guest room.
- In the event the hotel has oversold guest rooms, you’ll have protection.
- We can plan for and provide adequate shuttle service during the meeting (if provided).
- We can avoid financial penalties for not filling our room block commitments.
- We can negotiate lower and more favorable rates for future meetings (more rooms equals greater buying power and lower costs for everyone).
For these reasons, please reserve rooms through Orchid Event Solutions, ASHP’s only
official housing company for the Summer Meetings.
