Why book a room in the conference block?
You help us meet our financial commitment to the hotel. In order to secure a large block of quality hotel rooms at competitive prices in convenient locations, the CAES is legally bound to fill the rooms we contract. By booking in the block, you help us meet our financial obligations, ultimately keeping your registration rates reasonable. Many associations that hold conferences face this challenge when participants book outside the block using various online hotel reservation tools.
Additionally, by reserving a hotel room at the official conference hotel, you will be able to stay connected with informal activities and networking opportunities, enhancing your overall conference experience.
How does booking outside the block affect you?
If the CAES does not meet its room block commitments because attendees make reservations elsewhere, the hotel will charge the CAES attrition fees to make up for their lost revenue. These penalties can be significant and the CAES could be forced to increase registration fees or cut back on services provided to cover these expenses.
Why doesn’t the CAES book fewer rooms so there isn’t attrition?
Reducing room block commitments in future contracts would be accompanied by a reduction in the meeting space made available to the CAES, which means fewer concurrent sessions and no room for other events, such as the job fair, learning workshop, or other meetings. This would significantly change the opportunities for learning and networking.
