When attendees/exhibitors reserve rooms directly with the hotels or through internet providers, ASHP is exposed to penalties for not fulfilling our room block commitments. We risk our ability to rebook preferred meeting hotels and receive reduced rates, possibly lose qualification for the amount of space needed at the convention center, and/or are subject to higher convention center usage fees. This, in turn, could translate to higher registration fees. In addition, if attendees/exhibitors do not use the official ASHP housing company, Orchid Event Solutions, ASHP is unable to help if a reservation is not located in the hotel’s reservation system, to protect reservations if the hotel oversells its room inventory, and to plan properly for the meeting (e.g., secure the appropriate number of shuttle buses, communicate to attendees via the door drops, front desk, and in-room TV). To help ASHP make this meeting a success, please remember to book early and through Orchid Event Solutions.
