2015 / 2016 Hotel Rates and Conference Dates Announced
Tuesday, September 16, 2014
In 2012, ATHE Executive Director Nancy Erickson announced that ATHE had contracted with its conference hotels and set dates for the annual conference through the 30th Anniversary Conference in 2016.
In 2015, ATHE's conference will be July 30 to August 2 (pre-conference activities July 28 and 29) at Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montréal, Québec, Canada. Visit this page on the ATHE website for more information about the 2015 hotel. ATHE's sleeping room rate is $179 CDN + 18% tax for a total of $211.22.
Hotels often offer associations various concessions on published rates to obtain association business. Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel is no exception. ATHE will receive:
- a $5,000 credit for Food and Beverage
- a 20% discount on published AV pricing
- complimentary wireless internet access in guest rooms
ATHE is eligible, through the Greater Montreal Convention and Tourism Bureau, for a $10 per night rebate per room, reserved and used, for booking this contract by the end of 2011.
For the 30th Anniversary conference in Chicago in 2016, ATHE's conference will be August 11 to 14 at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel. ATHE's sleeping room rates are:
Single/Double - $199 + 15.4% tax = $229.65
Triple - $209 + 15.4% tax = $241.19
Quadruple - $219 + 15.4% tax = $252.73
ATHE will receive the following concessions:
- 10% discount off catering menus
- 40% Audio Visual discount with PSAV
- 40% discount on internet access in meeting rooms
- 75% discount on patching fees
- 25% discount on overnight parking rate at hotel garage
- 5% discount on guest room internet access
The sleeping room rate is only $10 higher than the 2011 conference guest room rate. Because ATHE negotiated this contract through its Executive Director, a 10% commission will be paid to ATHE on all revenue rooms actually occupied and paid for by attendees.
