Thank You for Booking at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront!

A special “thank you” to our Annual Meeting attendees who have booked their room reservations at the Annual Meeting hotel over the past few years. Because of you, AOAC can secure low rates for its room block.

AOAC contracts for a specific number of rooms at competitive nightly rates. Filling a room block is important because it provides a “report card” on the Association to future meeting sites. By establishing a history of consistently filling the room block, AOAC can secure both competitive room rates and larger blocks in subsequent years. Those rooms that go unused by AOAC attendees are charged back to AOAC and cause AOAC to raise registration rates to cover the expenses of hotel rooms left vacant.
