Our negotiated STM rate is about 30% of the normal rate so please be sure to make your hotel reservations before March 27, 2019. STM has guaranteed enough rooms for most of our projected number of attendees. Please understand that a commitment is made to the host hotel that a specified number of hotel rooms will be occupied by the meeting attendees. In exchange for the hotel room occupation, we are provided with complimentary meeting space, along with many other cost-saving concessions. If you do not make your reservations on or before the March 27, 2019 deadline you may be without a room and the STM will be assessed penalties for not meeting our guaranteed room block. Making your reservation saves you money and helps protect the STM financially.
