WHY RESERVE A GUEST ROOM AT THE HEADQUARTERS HOTEL?
The most obvious answer is convenience. All of the congress activities will be in the Loews Miami Beach Hotel.
The second answer is cost. The negotiated group rate for luxury accommodations in the headquarters hotel offers great value. It may be possible to find economy lodging elsewhere, but don’t forget to factor in the taxi or ride-share transportation costs and travel time to and from the hotel.
And the third answer: Your guest room at the headquarters hotel helps the congress avoid financial penalties. The hotel provides complimentary meeting space for the congress, based on a guarantee of filling a minimum number of guest rooms. If the guarantee is not met, fees are assessed.
