Exhibitor Hotel Block Requests
Exhibitors are expected to make housing arrangements through ASN's official housing process and SPARGO, Inc. (ASN's housing vendor) as part of their commitment to and support of the ASN Kidney Week. Bypassing the official housing process - making reservations directly with hotels that are part of the official ASN housing block or making reservations at hotels outside the ASN housing block - is considered a violation of the regulations and will result in the loss of priority points that would have been accrued by the exhibiting company for ASN Kidney Week.
Exhibitors may submit their hotel preferences along with the number of rooms needed: 2017 Exhibitor Room Block Request . Placement of exhibitor room blocks are determined by the following factors:
- 2016 Priority point standing
- 2016 Corporate Support Level
- Size of room block
- Date of submission of the housing request
Please note these are only requests and we will be in contact with you with your confirmed hotel information.
MAKING HOTEL RESERVATIONS OR EDITS TO AN EXISTING EXHIBITOR HOTEL ROOM BLOCK:
Please log into your Exhibitor Resource Center to make new reservations and revise your existing hotel room block.
SPARGO and ABTS: The Only Authorized Housing Vendors for ASN Kidney Week 2016
If you are contacted by any company other than SPARGO or ASN’s International Group Housing Counterpart, ABTS, offering housing in New Orleans, please note that these companies are not authorized to represent ASN nor do they have access to officially contracted Kidney Week 2016 room blocks or rates in New Orleans. Please beware! These unauthorized companies often don’t deliver on promises to customers. When customers arrive, reservations are non-existent or the hotels are not conveniently located. Sometimes the rooms have been cancelled and hefty cancellation fees have been placed on the customer’s credit card. If you are contacted by any company other than SPARGO or ABTS offering housing in New Orleans, or if you have any questions, please contact the Kidney Week 2017 Housing Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-866-849-8868.
