Message to Attendees: ARELLO® has made every effort to secure the best possible group nightly room rate for you at this event. That rate results from a negotiated overall package of event needs such as sleeping rooms, meeting room space and other requirements. ARELLO® will incur costs if the association falls short of its minimum room block guarantee. Please help ARELLO® keep the costs of this event as low as possible by booking your housing needs at the designated host hotel and in the ARELLO® room block.  Reserving outside the contracted room block may jeopardize ARELLO's ability to meet its contracted obligations and to keep registration fees to a minimum. ARELLO® appreciates your support and understanding of this important issue. If you experience difficulties when contacting the hotel, please advise ARELLO® HQ. Thank you.
