Hotel & Travel Information

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 does not use a housing bureau or third-party agency for hotel accommodations or any other travel arrangements. Any claims by any company stating otherwise are not true. Please be sure you are booking directly through the links on this page or directly with a specific property.
