Why Book with Us?

Here's how you and WorldatWork benefit when you stay at the hotels included in the 2024 conference hotel block: 

  1. WorldatWork has contracted hotel rooms at discounted rates on your behalf. If our contracted housing obligations are not met, we pay substantial penalty fees to the hotel. This will require us to increase registration rates in the future to cover such penalties. 
  2. The convention provides significantly discounted meeting space based on the number of hotel rooms contracted in the city by WorldatWork, which keeps the registration fees low. However, we must utilize a certain number of contracted sleeping rooms in order to receive these discounts. 
  3. We are able to monitor attendance through our room block. This enables us to be better prepared and helps with cost containment. 
  4. WorldatWork’s business value to a city is measured by the total number of sleeping rooms actually booked inside our contracted room block. Booking within our block helps us to maintain our strong business value, which is critical to our negotiations with future cities and cost-containment efforts.
