Don’t Forget to Register!

You may reserve your hotel room before registering for the 2019 AAHKS Annual Meeting; however, AAHKS will cross check hotel reservation lists with the lists of registered attendees. If you do not register for the Meeting by October 11, 2019, your room will be removed from the discounted AAHKS room block – resulting in a higher room rate.

They will also monitor cancellations at the Hilton Anatole, and if a room opens up, they will automatically switch your reservation to the Hilton Anatole.

Hotel Room Scam Advisory – Make reservations only with the hotels directly or with the AAHKS reservation service
You may be contacted by phone or email by outside housing companies (Expo Housing Services, Global Elite Travel, National Travel Associates, Travel Group Partners) to secure hotel reservations. These companies are not endorsed, affiliated or working in partnership with AAHKS (even though they may claim as such), and reservations made through these companies for our meeting cannot be guaranteed. Brokers soliciting your business have been known to accept payment without confirming room reservations. If this occurs, the hotel has no obligation to provide you with the accommodations you were expecting. Do not fall victim to this practice. AAHKS has contracted with Hilton Anatole to manage the AAHKS room blocks for the Meeting, and they are the only sources that can guarantee your reservation. Please report any unauthorized solicitations to AAHKS by emailing
