Why We Ask That You Stay at the Conference Hotel

With registration open, we hope you are gearing up to attend the 34th Annual NASIG conference in June at the Omni William Penn Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

We understand that the costs of attending professional conferences and membership in organizations seems to only rise, while the financial support of institutions for individuals to participate and attend these events seems to only decrease. By staying in the conference hotel, you help NASIG keep the conference rate, and membership fees lower.

Staying at the conference hotel also has added benefits for you as an attendee:

  • All meeting rooms and the opening reception are within the Omni William Penn.
  • Complimentary access to internet in your hotel room is included in the room rate.
  • Ample opportunity to meet new colleagues and catch up with old friends at the breakfasts, breaks, and late-night socials.
  • The Omni WIlliam Penn is located within walking distance of Point State Park, great restaurants, and attractions such as the Andy Warhol Museum and Heinz History Center.

It is important for the financial success of the conference, and the continued success of NASIG, that conference participants stay at the conference hotel. Every year NASIG contracts with a hotel for meeting space to stage the annual conference. As part of the meeting contract with the hotel, NASIG is obligated to fill a designated number of hotel rooms at a discounted rate.  If we do not fill those rooms, NASIG will be obligated to cover the difference in cost. By ensuring that the organization fills these room reservations, it stays in compliance with the contract and can keep costs down.

If you have any questions about the conference, or the organization’s obligation to fulfill hotel rooms in compliance with the hotel contract, please feel welcome to reach out to CPC at: conf-plan@nasig.org
