Reasons to stay in the SAA Hotel Block

SAA has contracted hotel rooms at discounted rates on your behalf. Booking in the SAA room block helps us keep the overall cost of the Annual Meeting down and allows us to keep registration fees low. Additionally, reserving a room in the SAA room block helps the organization maintain a strong standing when negotiating with cities where we would like to hold future meetings. Best of all, since this year’s meeting is self-contained at the Hilton San Francisco Union Hotel, you will have quick and easy access to the session rooms and other meeting space throughout the event.

We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!
