Reserve a Room in the EBAA Block and Help EBAA control meeting costs
In planning the EBAA Annual Meeting, we strive to keep registration and hotel room costs low for our members while also ensuring an event that meets your expectations. Satisfying our room commitment with the hotel is a critical element to keeping the meeting affordable.
We negotiate aggressively to secure the lowest room rate possible, consistent with the hotel’s quality. In exchange, we guarantee that we will fill a certain number of rooms during the meeting. If we fall short, the hotel will charge us attrition fees to make up the difference. We also may be required to pay for certain elements of the meeting, like steep rental fees for the meeting space itself, that otherwise would be free in exchange for utilizing the contracted number of guest rooms.
We’ve made it easier to book your room at the Loews Philadelphia. It’s a lovely property and we know you’ll enjoy being an elevator ride from the meeting and all the friends and colleagues who you may see just once a year.
We look forward to seeing you there!
