Why should I stay at the host hotel?

As meeting attendees increasingly book rooms at hotels other than the meeting hotel or outside the room block, the sponsoring associations have to pay hotels large penalties. In order to provide great rates to attendees, and keep the costs of the meeting down, the ECDL must agree to fulfill a certain number of sleeping rooms at the host hotel during the meeting dates. If meeting sponsors are not able to fill a high percentage of these contracted sleeping rooms, special attrition charges for rooms not filled become the financial responsibility of the organizations.


How does this affect me as an attendee?

When organizations take up all of the hotel meeting space and a majority of sleeping rooms, they usually do not pay for meeting space or receive a reduced fee. However, if more meeting attendees choose to stay at alternative hotels or book rooms at rates that are outside the block, this will force ECDL to book less sleeping rooms while utilizing the same amount of meeting space. The result increases the costs of operating the event. We appreciate your help!
