Non-refundable payment is due by December 3rd and must be received before presentation(s) will be scheduled. The registration fee includes participation in all presentation sessions, pre-conference workshops, CEU sessions, participation at the CARE (www.care-conference.net) & EQRC (www.EQRC.net), and submission to JBSS (www.jbssjournal.org) and/or JEQR (www.jeqr.org) for potential publications in peer-reviewed journals.
Although we were able to provide lunches in some prior conference years, unfortunately we are unable to do so at the 2017 conference and moving forward. The hotel has significantly increased its costs and we are making a deliberate choice not to increase registration costs to conference participants (which would have been necessary in order to continue providing lunches). A wide-range of lunch options are available at the Flamingo Hotel, including a deli, relatively inexpensive food court, pizza kiosk, superlative buffet, and multiple quality restaurants.
You may receive the special group rate by making an on-line hotel reservation at https://resweb.passkey.com/go/SFAAB7.
In prior years, AABSS was able to avoid a required resort fee but unfortunately now all Las Vegas hotels with casinos require one; the fee provides in-room internet access, fitness center access, and other amenities.
If desired, alternatively you may call the Flamingo Hotel in order to make reservations at 888-373-9855, although there is an added processing fee for reservations made via phone. Notify the reservation clerk that you are part of AABSS and qualify for the special conference rate (if asked, the code is SFAAB7).
Note that AABSS is required to have a minimum number of conference participants staying at the resort in order to utilize the hotel meeting rooms. This is the reason why we ask that you make reservations specifically with the Flamingo.
Important: The block of rooms we have reserved at the Flamingo for the AABSS conference expires on January 4, 2017. Consequently, you must reserve rooms prior to that date in order to receive the conference special $49 per night base rate; this special rate is available as long as our assigned number of allotted rooms lasts.
In short, we have made due efforts to provide a very low nightly rate of $49 (plus tax & fees), hosting the conference at a premium locale on the center of the strip, directly across from Caesars Palace, within walking distance of most attractions. If desired, you may upgrade from a standard room to a suite for an additional cost.
