Message to Attendees
SAE International has made every effort to secure the best possible group nightly room rate for you at this event. That rate results from a negotiated overall package of event needs such as sleeping rooms, meeting room space and other requirements-provided the minimum reservation guarantee is met. These negotiated costs are passed on to you in the form of savings on event registration. Please help SAE keep event costs as low as possible by booking your housing needs at the designated hotel through the reservation process created by SAE [through the reservation form/link listed below]. Reserving elsewhere means you are booking outside the contracted room block, jeopardizing SAE's ability to meet its contracted obligations and to keep registration fees to a minimum. SAE appreciates your support and understanding of this important issue. Thank you.

ALERT - ROOM RESERVATIONS: SAE International and our housing partners do not solicit hotel room reservations via telephone, email or fax. SAE International has no affiliation, thus cannot ensure the integrity of the reservations process, pricing, etc. for other companies. All attendees should coordinate their own hotel reservations directly through our listed reservation link on each event hotel and travel page. Thank you.
