Significant savings off the standard rates
Convenient access to conference programs & activities at the hotels and convention center
Free in-room wi-fi in your guest room
Friendly booking terms, cancellation policies & guaranteed rates

Please beware of scams!
It has come to our attention that there have been fraudulent emails advertising discounted room blocks for the TWS & AFS 2019 Joint Annual Conference. TWS and AFS have contracted discounted rooms at our two host hotels, but please note that we are not working with any third party travel agencies for the purposes of booking hotels, so beware of email fraud, scams, and other misleading communications. We highly recommend booking directly through our two host hotels, found below.
