Hotel Reservation Scam Information

Please make your hotel reservation directly with the the hotels using the information provided above.  Please do not give your credit card information or make any reservations with any other housing bureau, housing company or convention housing appearing to represent AAG. These companies, frequently based out of Las Vegas and going by names such as Exposition Housing, Expo Housing Group, Convention Housing, et. al, appear to offer lower rates for hotel rooms and are a scam. We are not able to verify the authenticity of such companies, and will not be able to provide resolution to issues related to such reservations.

The AAG Hotel Block

For each Annual Meeting, the AAG works diligently to reserve the accommodations and space we need for our 8,500 attendees and 1,700 sessions.  

When a venue is secured for our meeting, the AAG contracts a number of guest rooms at one or more hotels. In order to acquire the meeting and event space we need for our sessions, exhibits and receptions, we partner with hotels to bring them revenue in the form of booked hotel room nights. 

In making our agreements with our Annual Meeting hotel partners, we receive access to meeting and special event space that we can then use to further our mission of education, engagement, and community among geographers. Without our efforts to book and fill the hotel blocks, the meeting space rental fees would be extremely costly, making the Annual Meeting much more expensive.

Our Annual Meeting hotels are safe, reputable, and centrally located properties in interesting and dynamic cities. The rates at these hotels are negotiated on behalf of attendees to be lower, more equitable, and more predictable over time than the regular rates offered to non-conference attendees. 

Without the support of attendees like you staying in the discounted hotel blocks, our fees and prices would need to drastically change to afford those added costs. These price changes would mean that registration fees and membership dues could rise. The ability of AAG to offer meeting space and materials at little to no charge would disappear and members would get less support when needed. 

AAG staff work tirelessly to find the best prices for its members and for the association by working with various partners in interesting and exciting cities. Please consider staying in the AAG hotel block.
