The conference will take place at the hotel.
Make a reservation—the discounted conference rate is $199 (plus tax). Reservations must be made by April 29, 2019 (11:59 PM ET).
The conference will be held May 20-23, 2019. If you are attending a pre-conference workshop or institute, please confirm the dates you will be needing hotel accommodations.
Why stay at the contracted hotel?
ACPM has secured a block or rooms for attendees at the Omni William Penn Hotel. The hotel is providing discounted rates based on a guaranteed percentage of attendees staying in the official conference hotel. It is important ACPM meets this commitment and we thank you for booking your accommodations directly with them.
When you book your room with official hotel, you receive the following benefits:
- Peace of mind that you have a reservation at the 'official' conference hotel at the discounted rate
- Complimentary internet access in your room
- Protection in the event the hotel has oversold guest rooms
When rooms are not booked as part of the room block:
- ACPM is exposed to penalties for not fulfilling our room block commitments. By avoiding hotel penalties, ACPM is able to keep conference costs down.
- It could hurt ACPM's ability to rebook preferred hotels and negotiate rates.
- It risks ACPM losing qualification for the amount of meeting space.
- ACPM is unable to assist with any issues related to lost reservations.
- ACPM is unable to protect attendees if the hotel 'oversells' its room inventory.
Please support the conference and ACPM's efforts to reduce costs by staying at the official hotel. We think you will find the increased networking opportunities, quality hotel services, and amenities to be worth it!
Hotel rooms should be booked directly with the Omni William Penn Hotel. ACPM does not use a third party booking service.
Sham housing companies are approaching Prevention 2019 attendees with fraudulent offerings of hotel rooms. Attendees fall prey to these imposters losing significant deposits, discovering hidden costs, up front charges, or being bait and switched to hotel rooms they never booked.
Of course, these companies are in no way affiliated with Prevention 2019 or the Omni William Penn. They troll the internet and association websites looking for trade show events and then gain access to email addresses for direct contact or draw attendees to their websites posing as an association's sanctioned housing provider. Do not give them your credit card information.
The Omni William Penn is the only hotel for this conference. The conference does not use a housing company and the Omni William Penn will not contact you directly to make a reservation. Booking through The Omni William Penn ensures you will be working with the hotel, that your credit card information is secure, and that you will benefit from all services provided to conference attendees at the official hotel.
If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room reservation for Prevention 2019, or if they represent themselves as an “ACPM housing provider,” please get as much information as you can, then contact Jessica Bradshaw (firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-466-2044 x112). We advise that you not offer any credit card information to them as payment for a reservation. If you have provided payment information to this company, please cancel this transaction immediately.
