Untitled Document

Additional Meetings is the name given to events scheduled separately from the AAR and SBL programs. Examples of Additional Meetings include receptions, editorial board and business meetings, and breakfast and lunch gatherings. Meeting Fees are based on the schedule below. We have five locations that we are utilizing for space this year in San Diego: San Diego Convention Center, Grand Hyatt, Hilton Bayfront, Marriott Marquis & Marina, and the Omni Hotel. Events will be scheduled in the location that we feel best suits your needs based on what we have available. You will be notified via email when your event has been assigned, and will receive the name of the venue, room name, catering contact, and audiovisual contact so that you may make your arrangements directly with the appropriate people.
