Booking a room in the IMCA room block is an important way to support the association and keep overall meeting costs as low as possible. IMCA commits to a block of rooms at select hotels on behalf of conference attendees and has a financial obligation to fill these blocks.  Please help us avoid potential penalties and control costs for future events by staying at the official hotels.  Staying within the block is also more convenient and helps you stay connected with the informal activities and networking opportunities that occur at these sites during the conference.  If you are required to reserve a room through your company’s travel department, please forward the booking link to them so that you can reserve a room in IMCA’s room block.
