Top 10 Reasons Why It Benefits Everyone When You Stay in a Conference Hotel!

  1. You stay right at the center of conference activity.
  2. You receive a significantly discounted guest room rate at a great hotel.
  3. You may park your car and leave it for the entire event.
  4. AND, you don't have to pay parking fees!
  5. You have easy access to your room between activities and especially if you forgot something.
  6. You may fellowship and network easily with other conference attendees.
  7. It's a short walk to all of the conference experiences and a short walk back to your room after a long and wonderful day.
  8. You don't have to get up at the crack of dawn each morning to get to the worship celebrations on time.
  9. You don't have to carry around the bundle of resources you purchased at the ARM Bookstore all day. 
  10. You improve ARM's negotiating ability to ensure lower lodging rate in the future!  

Something we'd like you to know:

ARM takes their role of finding a conference site very seriously. We look for a venue that will conveniently provide for the needs of our guests and facilitate comfortable meeting space conducive to learning and fellowship.   

ARM negotiates with the hotels and convention centers for favorable sleeping room and meeting space rental fees in complex consideration of our previous conference history, anticipated number of attendees, meeting space requirements for children, youth, and adults, meal functions, restaurant patronage, and anticipated financial impact on the city. 

In addition to reduced sleeping room rates, hotels will generally reduce, or even waive meeting space rental rates, contingent upon the number of sleeping rooms occupied during the event.  ARM carefully and conscientiously then contracts with the hotel, reserving a "block" of sleeping rooms at those negotiated rates based on past registration figures, expected popularity of each site, and our best projections for conference attendance. This is not an exact science and we seek to build in as much contractual flexibility as possible so adjustments can be made as the meeting draws closer. 

Ultimately, enough conference attendees must stay at the conference hotel to meet the contracted numbers.  If the conference does not meet that commitment, ARM still has to pay the hotel!  That attrition penalty is the dollar amount of the difference from what the actual pick-up was, to what we carefully committed. 

If you find a less expensive hotel rate, take care to compare it to the conference hotel to ensure that your expectations are met.  Many hotels are located further from the conference site, lack certain amenities, and do not provide easy access to conference events.  While there may be a short term financial savings by staying at a hotel with a perceived more economical rate, in the long run, the conference ends up with higher expenses, higher hotel rates, and reluctantly increased registration fees as ARM faces increased difficulty in negotiating favorable rates in future years. 

Please support the conference and ARM by staying, and encouraging others to stay, at the conference hotels.
