Register for the Conference and Book Hotel EARLY!

All speakers need to register for the conference by 1 December 2017 in order to maintain their session on the schedule. Anyone not registered by this date will be replaced with one of the many alternates that are eager to present. Sessions can be on ANY day of the conference, so it is important to plan to attend the full conference from 5-7 February as we can not guarantee what date/time your session will be scheduled.

Register for the Conference HERE

The Marriott Marquis in Times Square
is home to both the 52nd AAIE (3-7 Feb.) and the ISS Recruitment Fair (8-11 Feb.), but is ALSO a very popular hotel and fully booked with events the week of our conference. This means it can be very busy and the number of special priced rooms for our guests are limited. Please be sure to make your reservation as soon as possible but before 15 December 2017 for best chances to get the AAIE discounted price.

Reservation Dates: For the main AAIE Conference, we recommend that you plan to arrive on Sunday 4 February and depart Thursday 8 February 2018. If you are a member of one of the many global Board Meetings or AAIE Pre-Conference Events that take place on Saturday or Sunday, please check the dates to ensure you have reserved the additional nights for these meetings.

Share with Co-Presenters & Panelists

Please share this information with all co-presenters and panelists. AAIE will only send updates and information directly with the individual that submitted the session proposal. If you have a co-presenter or are moderating a panel, thank you for forwarding any information concerning the conference from AAIE to your colleagues. We request that each co-presenter or panelist, register for the conference by 1 December, 2017.

Conference App, Files, & Biography

In the next few weeks, AAIE will provide the lead speaker or panel moderator access to the conference app. The app is the primary way for communicating with attendees, will hold the most up-to-date scheduling and session information and will be used in a variety of interactive ways. As a presenter it gives you an opportunity to upload your photo, edit your biography, add co-presenters or panel members and add files you want to share for your session.

While this is still in production through January 2018, we will give you instructions in the next few weeks on adding your information and that of other speakers in your group. In the meantime, ensure you have your photo and bio information handy and up to date, and begin collecting this information from all other Co-Presenters / Panel Members in your group now so you can easily update your session information.
