After you receive your conference registration confirmation, you will be eligible to reserve your hotel room in San Diego. In order to receive the special AMGA conference rate of $299 per night (at all hotels), please use the dedicated link provided in your confirmation email.

Reservations must be made by Friday, February 21, 2020, in order to receive the discounted AMGA conference rate. After this date, rates and availability of rooms cannot be guaranteed. Both the Omni and the Hard Rock Hotel have smaller room blocks and may sell out fast due to proximity of the convention center. Don’t delay in making your hotel reservations!


AMGA is aware of companies attempting to do business with AMGA attendees and exhibitors by soliciting them for sleeping rooms at AMGA’s Annual Conference. Please note that AMGA does not endorse booking hotel reservations via another company or source. The only authorized source for making hotel room reservations for the Annual Conference is to use the dedicated reservation link you receive in your conference registration confirmation. At no point will an AMGA authorized agency or hotel call you to help you book rooms.

If you receive any solicitations either via email or telephone from other third parties/vendors incorrectly identifying themselves as an official AMGA housing representative or member of exhibition services, we ask that you please delete the message immediately and ignore any further requests.
