Book your stay at the Hilton Chicago, the official conference hotel. For the 2020 conference we have rates that are lower than those for the past six years. We have negotiated the lowest discounted rates available for a comparable standard of accommodations in the area. We have also obtained rooms at a deep discount for Students. Please note that CAA has committed to a block of rooms at the hotel on behalf of its members and has a financial obligation to fill that block. 

Please be aware the Hilton Chicago is the only hotel contracted for the conference, you should not respond to any solicitations from other hotels or services offering you accommodations for the conference. 

***Reservations must be made no later than TUESDAY JANUARY 21, 2020 to receive the conference discount rates.***
