The AIA and APA is excited to welcome attendees to the official AM Hotel the Sheraton New Orleans, which is located at 500 Canal Street, New Orleans, LA 70130. The Sheraton is the headquarter hotel of the AM. It will host the majority of the conference including academic sessions and committee/interest group meetings as well as the Exhibit Hall, AM registration, and special events. The New Orleans Marriott hotel will offer a smaller inventory of rooms for our Annual Meeting attendees and will host some session, committee/interest group meetings, as well as evening receptions. The Marriott is located a stone's throw away from the Sheraton, directly across the street at 555 Canal St, New Orleans, LA 70130.
Both properties will offer AM attendees a discounted hotel rate of $159 USD per night, plus taxes and the rate includes complimentary in room High Speed Internet. You will be able to begin booking rooms at the discounted rates in late August, 2014. Early Bird Discounted Registration for the AM will also open at that time.
Additionally, airline discounts will be offered for attendees and booking codes will be available in August, 2014.
What is the importance of booking at our official Annual Meeting Hotels?
The AIA and APA are proud to have produced the Annual Meeting for our professional members for the past 115 years. Financially, we are able to do this by reserving a large block of rooms with a hotel. In exchange, these hotels offer our attendees the guaranteed lowest group rate at the hotel and provide us with complimentary meeting space to hold the meeting. But if we are unable to meet our guaranteed minimum number of registered guests, then the AIA and APA will have to pay for the unused rooms as well as room rental for the meeting space, which can amount to a severe financial penalty to the non-profits. We request your support by booking within our reserved blocks, helping us continue to produce this meeting for the next 115 years. We thank you for your support.
