Staying in the IAFE Room Block is EXTREMELY important!

As we head into our second year in San Antonio – please make note that booking in the IAFE Room Block is critical to the success of our event.

Why is this so important?  Here are the reasons!

  1.  SAVE MONEY $$ -- The IAFE hotel rate will be the LOWEST rate offered to the public at each property during our convention timeframe.

  2. KEEP REGISTRATION RATES LOW -- Your Association has negotiated great rates at eight different hotels, giving you a range of choices for prices and amenities. In exchange, we are able to negotiate a better rate for the Convention meeting space and thus keep registration rates very affordable – much less expensive than other comparable events. For this reason, we ask that you please book your hotel rooms within the designated block in order to continue to keep future Conventions affordable for all.

  3. EARN REWARDS – If you’re signed up for a particular hotel brand’s loyalty program, you still receive loyalty points and benefits by booking in the IAFE Room Block.

  4. AMENITIES – Some listed amenities for each property are only received by those booking in the IAFE Room Block (e.g., Complimentary Internet and Discounted Parking.)

 

The hotel properties where we have room blocks are truly partners of the IAFE – as they provide benefits to the IAFE and our attendees. Please book in the IAFE Room Block in 2019 to save you and the IAFE money!

Please note:  There are a limited number of rooms in each hotel, so those planning to attend should book your room as early as possible to stay in the hotel of your preference.  Please contact the IAFE with any questions about your rooming needs.

 

Anyone booking 5 or more sleeping rooms must sign an Affiliate Room Contract with the hotel.  Last-minute cancellations are detrimental to the association because these rooms are not available to attendees looking to secure rooms before the housing deadline. Rooms cancelled on short notice do not allow the association— or the hotel — enough time to resell the rooms.
