Affiliates events are scheduled right before, during or after a convention by an attendee of the convention. These events are not a part of the convention program and typically all charges associated with the affiliate event is the responsibility of the attendee.
The group contact should provide Event Services with clear instructions on how affiliate requests are to be handled. If the group has contracted all of the function space, requests typically are referred to the group contact for approval. Approved events would then be handled directly with Event Services with function space at the hotel’s normal prevailing room rental rates and will be subject to the hotel’s standard contract terms and conditions.
