ATHE Announces Conference Schedule and Hotels through 2016
ATHE is pleased to announce that it has secured hotel contracts and conference dates through 2016, when we will celebrate our 30th anniversary in Chicago.
Since 2010, ATHE has been working with a third party contractor, ConferenceDirect, for assistance in hotel research, site selection and contracting. This service is provided without charge, and that company is provided with a customary 10% commission on contracted rooms actually occupied during the conference. The advantage of working with this vendor includes the breadth and reach of the hotels throughout the U.S. and abroad that are contracted through this company. The company leverages its volume for its clients. The contracting experience of the ConferenceDirect staff, as well as the relationships built over the years with hotel staff, assist in the final negotiation process.
The schedule, in brief, is below. Click here to read the full article for all the details including hotel rates.
August 1 - 4, 2013: Orlando, Florida
July 24 - 27, 2014: Scottsdale, Arizona
July 30 - August 2, 2015 - Montreal, Quebec, Canada
