The AAFS 69th Annual Scientific Meeting will be held February 13-18, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans.  Please be aware that AAFS has a set, contracted block of rooms for attendees of the AAFS Annual Scientific Meeting.  The contracted block of rooms is protected and is available for online reservations for meeting attendees.  The AAFS attendee block is currently full at the Hyatt and AAFS is seeking alternative solutions for attendee accommodations.  Attendees should continue to check availability at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans by using the link to the Hyatt reservation system above.  Although the Hyatt is currently showing fully booked, attendees cancel reservations and you may still be able to get in under the AAFS attendee block.  Persistence is key to your success in securing a room at the Hyatt!

The Single/Double attendee rate is $207 per night at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans for AAFS attendees.  The hotel is located at 601 Loyola Ave, New Orleans, LA 70113.  The deadline to make reservations at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans in the attendee block is January 9, 2017.  After this date, the Hyatt Regency will not accept reservations at the contracted rate of $207 per night for meeting attendees.

AAFS only has a limited number of rooms available in its block for stays on Saturday, February 18, 2017, and the obtainability of rooms after Saturday will be at the prevailing market rates.  Once you have confirmed that you will attend the AAFS meeting, please carefully consider and book your travel dates accordingly.
