Convention Hotel Room-Nights Status
Convention Hotel Room-Nights Status

One of the critical success measurements for a convention is how many room-nights are booked vs how many are in the contract.

Total room-nights is calculated by taking the number of nights each room is booked, and adding them all up for all the booked rooms for a grand total for the whole convention.

For the convention we contracted for 1100 room-nights. As of the end of October we are at 737 room-nights, or 67%.

We are actually running ahead of where we expected to be 9 months out from the convention. This means that if you have not yet made your hotel reservations, and want a room in a specific building or location at the resort, you may want to make those room reservations now while there are still rooms left in each building.

We have some folks who have booked rooms as early as Monday night, and others who are staying on and not checking out until Wednesday morning.

As mentioned on the convention web site, we have many breakout sessions or seminars scheduled to take place on Thursday.

We also have some attendees who plan to come even earlier and are planning their own informal small-group get-togethers Wednesday afternoon.

So, if you have the opportunity to come early and enjoy America's Finest City, you may want to consider adding a night or two to your hotel reservation while rooms are still available.

New update from the hotel...we are now at 845 room nights reserved, or 77% to our commitment.

If you have not made your room reservations, you might want to do so while there are still good room choices available.

Hotel guest rooms continue to fill up quickly...we have now reached 80% of our contract commitment.

Don't wait too long if you want to be able to choose a specific resort building to be in, or a specific room type or price.

New update from the hotel...we are now at 1160 room-nights reserved...we have exceeded our 1100 room-night commitment.

There are a good number of rooms available, but soon the hotel will start charging their normal higher room rate for new reservations instead of the lower rate we negotiated.

If you have not made your room reservations, you might want to do so while there are still good room choices available.
