ASSA 2018 Housing Instructions
DEADLINE TO MAKE RESERVATIONS AT THE CONVENTION RATE IS DECEMBER 4th
You must register for the meetings in order to gain access to the housing website. Once your registration payment has been processed, you will receive an email confirmation that contains a link to the housing website. Suites can only be reserved online. If you register for the meetings online, you will receive an email confirmation within minutes. Faxed registration forms take up to three days to process, and mailed forms take up to two weeks to process. If you do not receive a registration confirmation within this time frame, email firstname.lastname@example.org. It is important to make your hotel reservation as soon as possible after you have registered. Hotel reservations are processed on a first received basis. A unique registration ID number must be used for each room or suite request. Hotels will not accept reservations directly. Hotel rates and suite diagrams are available on the AEA website at aeaweb.org/conference/.
Hotel confirmations will be sent by email when email addresses are provided, unless otherwise indicated. CMR Housing (ASSA) will email a confirmation once your booking is confirmed, modified, and/or cancelled. Review your confirmation carefully for accuracy. If you do not receive a confirmation via email after submitting a request, please contact CMR Housing at email@example.com. Should your desired length of stay not be available at the time of booking, you will have the opportunity to place your reservation on the waitlist for the unavailable dates. CMR Housing will contact the hotel on your behalf to request the dates needed. A confirmation will be sent to you once all dates are confirmed. An updated confirmation from CMR is the only notification that you will receive if waitlisted nights are added to your reservation.
