Hotel and Travel

Why Stay at the Conference Hotel?

ASECS has contracted with the Sheraton Toronto Centre for the 2024 Annual Meeting. The Program Committee would like to stress the importance of making your reservation within the official contracted ASECS hotel block. ASECS receives concessions as part of the hotel contract (like free meeting room space) by committing to a certain number of hotel room nights. These concessions allow ASECS the ability to offer lower guest room rates and keep the conference registration fees affordable.

ASECS encourages all participants to register for the meeting and reserve a room within the official room block. In doing so, you are not only supporting the 2024 Annual Meeting but the overall financial stability of the ASECS organization.

Additional benefits for booking within the official contracted hotel block:

  • Networking – whether it’s in a hotel lobby, the hotel coffee shop, elevator ride there are numerous opportunities for attendees to connect with each other by staying at the conference hotel.
  • Easily accessible — staying in the conference hotel means less travel time, since you are already where you are supposed to be each morning, plus if you need a few minutes to yourself your room is only an elevator ride away.
  • Support — should you encounter any issues with your stay, ASECS staff can support you in getting them resolved with the hotel. If booking outside the ASECS contracted block, our contracted clauses and concessions will not be applied to your reservation.
