Roommate Referral Program

Cut your housing costs in half by sharing a room with another conference attendee! Check the Roommate Referral Box on the registration form and we will send you a list of other interested attendees. To be eligible for the program, registration must be received by Friday, September 12, 2014. Please note that Americans for the Arts cannot guarantee discounted hotel room availability. Attendees are strongly encouraged to make housing arrangements when they register and cancel the reservation if a roommate is identified. If you have questions about the program, please contact us by e-mail at events@artsusa.org.

Disclaimer: Room sharing arrangements are the responsibilities of the individual parties involved. Americans for the Arts expressly disclaims any responsibility regarding roommate matches and any potential disputes that may arise as a result of participation in the program. Americans for the Arts' role is strictly limited to the maintenance and distribution of the list of registrants who have signed up for the program. Americans for the Arts will maintain the list but does not (a) screen participants, (b) make determinations as to the appropriateness of any resulting room share, or (c) represent that any room share will prove to be satisfactory to the participants. Americans for the Arts in no way makes any recommendations for or endorsements of any specific roommate arrangements. In participating in this program, you acknowledge that Americans for the Arts expressly disclaims any liability for any damage, loss of property, or injury that may arise from participating in the Roommate Referral program.

Tips:
Work out with your roommate a contingency plan if one person needs to cancel their attendance at the meeting due to an emergency or otherwise. Since your roommate will be arriving separately, be sure to list their name on the reservation as having permission to check in and get a key to your shared room from the front desk by showing a picture ID.

Special Accommodation

We want to ensure that your conference experience is pleasant and comfortable. Attendees needing special accommodation—including ADA access, hearing or visual aids, or special meal requests—please make sure to indicate these items on the registration form. You may also contact Meetings and Events by e-mail at events@artsusa.org.

Special Events

The Opening Reception, breakfasts, and luncheons are included in your registration fee. Dine-Arounds are Dutch-treat and ‘NAMPaoke’ (NAMP Karaoke) is an optional (but fun!) event, so food and beverage at these events are the responsibility of the attendee.

Student Registration

Students, part-time or full-time, are eligible for the National Arts Marketing Project Conference Student Rate. Students must use the paper form to register and also submit a photocopy of a valid student ID from an accredited, degree granting college or university. No other discounts or promotions apply.
