Help Keep Our Expenses Down (and yours too!)
AIAA group rates for hotel accommodations are negotiated as part of an overall contract that also includes meeting rooms and other conference needs. Our total event costs are based in part on meeting or exceeding our guaranteed minimum of group-rate hotel rooms booked by conference participants. If we fall short, our other event costs go up. Please help us keep the costs of presenting this conference as low as possible – reserve your room at the designated hotel listed in this Preliminary Program and on our Web site, and be sure to mention that you’re with the AIAA conference. Meeting our guaranteed minimum helps us hold the line on costs, and that helps us keep registration fees as low as possible. All of us at AIAA thank you for your help!
