Support ACI Alliance:

To obtain the necessary amount of meeting and exhibit space, ACI Alliance must commit to using a minimum number of guest rooms. If that commitment is not met, ACI Alliance will incur significant financial penalties and it will cause a major impact on the future programs that ACI Alliance is able to offer. By booking your room under the official ACI Alliance room block, you help ACI Alliance meet its hotel obligation. We thank you in advance for your assistance.
