AWCI's Annual Convention: Hotel & Travel

Hotel & Travel Information


The official headquarters hotel and exclusive location for AWCI’s Convention & Intex Expo is Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, 3950 Las Vegas Blvd. South. AWCI and Intex Expo attendees are extended special single or double occupancy group rates as shown below plus tax and resort fee:

March 24
March 25
March 26
March 27
March 28
March 29
March 30

*Plus a $23 Daily Resort Fee (discounted from the usual $33 per night). The resort fee includes high speed wireless internet service in guestroom and public areas, Cardio Center access located on the Beach Level, daily newspaper, unlimited local and 800-number calls, outgoing faxes, notary services and airline boarding pass printing at the business center desks or Concierge. You may opt-out of the resort fee when you check-in, but if Internet access is needed after opting out, the connection fee will be much higher than $23 per day.

Beware any outside calls, emails or faxes you may receive for “discounted” rates for Las Vegas hotels. AWCI does not use a housing company for room reservations. These calls are often scams that could result in your credit card information being compromised and no hotel room being reserved.

Monday, March 6, is the cut-off date for room reservations, or earlier if the block of rooms sells out sooner. Reserve your room early online. For questions regarding your reservation, please call (877) 632.9001 for assistance. Indicate you are with AWCI or INTEX Expo to get group rates. Please ensure cancellations are made at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled arrival date in order to not be charged one night’s room and tax. If you depart earlier than your booked departure date, the hotel will charge a one night room and tax penalty.

All guaranteed reservations that fail to arrive on the scheduled arrival date will be considered no shows and a charge of one night’s room and tax will be posted to the credit card on file.

Handouts from AWCI’s Convention will be posted to AWCI’s Convention website and placed on the convention mobile app on or about March 20.
