Please note: The ABA has negotiated special room rates for our meeting; these special room rates are only available to ABA attendees. In exchange for the negotiated room rates, ABA has certain minimum contractual obligations with each hotel. Therefore, it is important that we fill room blocks we have contracted for, so there are not financial liabilities to the Association. The ABA passes along these savings to attendees and exhibitors.
