The guest room block and group rate negotiated with the hotel includes costs to provide us with the large quantity of meeting space we require for the conference. If we do not occupy a sufficient amount of guest rooms throughout the conference, we will incur penalties and additional costs. Therefore, we urge all meeting participants to stay in the host hotel.
