The 2013 ASCB Annual Meeting has partnered with onPeak to give you hotel discounts, a simple online tool to make your plans, and dedicated staff to ensure your trip goes smoothly.
To reserve your room (rates begin at $89* per night first-come, first-served. *This rate is available to ASCB student members), click here.
Hotel prices can fluctuate widely, and ASCB is aware that attractive rates are available online. However, the ASCB and onPeak have negotiated special rates and added-value incentives with hotels that are fully competitive with online offerings. Moreover, reserving rooms in the ASCB Housing Block offers attendees important benefits.
Please cooperate by booking your hotel room through onPeak by November 21. After that date, rooms are not guaranteed at the negotiated rate. If ASCB fills its Housing Block, the Society secures both competitive room rates and larger blocks of rooms for subsequent Annual Meetings.
If you see online rates at any of the hotels in our block that are markedly lower than current ASCB offerings, please contact Trina Armstrong, ASCB Director of Meetings.
Only the official ASCB housing partner onPeak may contact you (either by email or phone) about booking hotels for the 2013 Annual Meeting in New Orleans. All exhibitors and meeting attendees should book hotels through the official housing partner onPeak.
If someone other than onPeak (claiming to be contacting you on behalf of the ASCB) contacts you via email, phone, or fax, please do not provide your personal information, especially your credit card number. If you provide your credit card information to one of these companies (commonly referred to as "pirates" or "housing bandits"), your credit card may be charged and you might not have a hotel room when you arrive in New Orleans.
If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room at the upcoming ASCB Annual Meeting, or who represents himself or herself as the "ASCB housing partner" please get as much information as you can, such as the name of the company, person calling, and telephone number. Then contact Trina Armstrong, ASCB Director of Meetings or call 301-347-9325 and provide her the information.
(Exhibitors should refer to the online Exhibit Prospectus for their cancellation policy.)
You may make changes to or cancel your hotel reservation online at onPeak or by clicking the link in your confirmation email. You may also call onPeak directly at 800-220-9540 within the U.S./Canada. International participants may make changes online at onPeak or may call 312-527-7300. The deadline for changes and cancellations through onPeak is November 21, 2013.
If you cancel your plans to attend the 2013 ASCB Annual Meeting, remember to cancel your meeting registration and hotel reservation as quickly as possible. The ASCB strives to obtain the largest number of hotel rooms near the New Orleans Convention Center at the lowest possible rate for attendees. Hotels are reluctant to commit large room blocks and offer lower rates if the Society has a high no-show rate (number of attendees with reservations who do not show up and do not cancel reservations). If a reservation is canceled properly, it will help you avoid charges and allows another ASCB attendee the chance to book the room.
