Hotel & Travel Information

Message to Attendees

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. Contracts with the venue include a provision to reduce event costs if SAE meets or exceeds its minimum sleeping room block guarantee. Conversely, event costs will increase if SAE falls short of its minimum room block guarantee. Please help SAE keep the costs of this event as low as possible by booking your housing needs at the designated host hotel and through the reservation process created by SAE. 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.
