Got through quickly using the 877 number. The nice lady I spoke with said she'd had a lot of calls from us today. :D

I think this may have been answered already but it is refundable for those that are concerned. Card is just holding room for now.

I don't think so.  The conference is done by the AHA.  The rooms are done by the hotel and a housing bureau.  I think the AHA will have the link up and running at the right time, since they control the servers.

I think the link is out there, just no one updated the website (ahaconference.org) to reflect it.

I hope so, that does make me feel better about it.  I do have a plan in place in case 3:15 rolls around and I haven't been able to register yet.  One of the other members of my club agreed to do it for me once he has finished registering.

Yes, the lady I spoke with said you have to cancel at least 3 days before the registration.  The card you gave is just to hold the room and when you check out of your room you can leave it on that card or use a different one.

Quincy, since you may be in a rush, they just made a change last night to the conference tickets and made the banquet an add on to each of the packages.  So the full package is $205 plus $50 for the banquet.  I'd hate to have you get a ticket and miss out on the banquet.

Looks like the link is up. I just checked and was able to hold a room so they are still available.

Thanks, I did see that last night.  I know the wife will be angry if I miss out on the Banquet tickets, she is looking forward to that part.  Well she is looking forward to all of it but she specifically said she wants to go to the banquet.

The Banquet meal is now something to look forward to, as Sean Paxton has done some wonderful stuff based on local ingredients.

Then there are the announcements, the business things, and the awards for the competition. Those have become more interesting fo rme over the years.

Also will registration be done through a link on the Registration Details page or a link on the main conference page?

I assume it will be here:

http://www.ahaconference.org/conference/register/

but don't quote me on that.

I don't understand why when planning a conference for 2500 the AHA didn't announce multiple hotels at once.

It is most likely part of the contract with the hotel.  They want to be guaranteed so many room nights when they provide the discounted rate.  Even though it is a certainty that the hotel will sell out, they need their assurances.

Oh that's probably true. I just figured that with two Marriott properties a block away there should be more rooms, but then the Marriott's manager would want to fill their own hotel first.
