Exhibitor Hotel Discount

 

Exhibitor Hotel Discount Code

Stay in the official conference hotel block and save $200. Simply provide AUVSI with your hotel confirmation number at the time of registration and you will automatically get $200 off any exhibitor badge. This offer is only good for exhibitors at the time of registration.

Local and still want to save? No problem if your address is within the state of Georgia then you are eligible to save $200 on your registration.

 

The Fine Print

This offer is only good for exhibitors at the time of registration. Room sharers must both be listed on the hotel room. AUVSI reserves the right to confirm your booking with the hotel. Your hotel reservation must be valid at the time of the show. No refunds will be given for exhibitors registering without their confirmation code. Locals taking advantage of this offer must have a valid ID with local address on it. Registrants not meeting the above requirements will have their discount revoked and will be responsible for the full registration fee.

 

Why Do You Get a Discount for Staying in the Official Hotel Block?

AUVSI cares about your bottom line—the best leverage to negotiate hotel room rates and convention rental space is buying power!

Exhibitors and attendees staying within the block help AUVSI demonstrate the value of the show to cities, resulting in lower space rental fees and room rates—savings that we pass on to you!

The exhibit hall at AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems has grown exponentially but the number of hotel rooms in the official housing block has not kept pace. As a result, a number of major cities will not even consider hosting us and others will only contract 18 months out. When you stay in the official block, you ensure that AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems will continue to grow and serve the needs of the industry.
