    Housing Information

    All exhibitors should make their hotel reservations online by March 30 in order to obtain the discounted rates.

    Housing rates will have incremental increases between now and COLLABORATE, so be sure to book before the March 30 discount deadline.

    When you’ve completed your housing reservation please make note your Housing Registration Code.  In order to receive each badge on a complimentary basis, each registrant is required to book their housing in the COLLABORATE hotel block. If a registrant elects to stay outside the hotel block, a surcharge of $200 will be applied. 

    Please avoid housing solicitations and book your hotel room only through the link above. COLLABORATE is not responsible for rooms booked through other means, and we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any offers other than those through our secured hotel block.
