Reservations Link:

Reservation cutoff deadline Monday, January 18, 2016

While early reservations are recommended to take advantage of discounted rates, please be sure to cancel your reservations prior to the Monday, January 18, 2016, deadline if you are unable to attend or you cannot use the reservations. This will make the rooms available for other attendees and will help AAFS avoid the financial penalties associated with cancellations made after the room block closes.

Please be aware that AAFS has not contracted with any company to handle hotel reservations for the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. Under the official AAFS hotel block, your reservation has protection in the event that the convention hotel is completely sold out. “Outside” reservations are the first to be reassigned to other hotels – if you truly have an actual reservation. These companies often ask you to pay the entire amount upfront and do not give refunds for any reason.

Booking must go through the Rio’s website link. AAFS strives hard to contract the lowest possible rate for our meeting attendees and the hotel cannot offer lower pricing to other sources during the AAFS meeting.
