Conference room rate: $167/night (plus taxes and valet parking).

The deadline to receive our AHECTA group rate of $167/night at The Blackwell Inn has been extended to September 14, 2018. After September 14, 2018, The Blackwell will release all rooms not sold from the group block for general sales, and all subsequent hotel reservations will be taken on an availability basis…which could be difficult, with this being prime football season!

Every attempt will be made to accommodate special requests for room types, including location. However, due to arrival and departure patterns, not all requests may be fulfilled.

To reserve your room:

Call The Blackwell Inn to make your room reservation and identify as being with the “AHECTA Annual Meeting”, or the “Association for Higher Education Communications Technology Advancement Annual Meeting”. Online reservations through The Blackwell Inn’s online reservation site will not activate our negotiated conference group room rate.

Reservations: (866) 247-4003  /  (614) 247-4000
Group Name: AHECTA Annual Meeting, or Association for Higher Education Communications Technology Advancement Annual Meeting
Check-in/Check-out: 07 OCT 2018 – 11 OCT 2018 (negotiated group room rate of $167/night applies)
Conference dates: 08 OCT 2018 through 10 OCT 2018

If you must cancel your reservation for any reason, make sure you do so prior to 4:00pm ET the day before your scheduled arrival time, to avoid one night’s room and tax charges to the credit card on file.
