SAA has negotiated the special discounted conference rates listed below. These rates are available until July 27 OR until our room block has been met, whichever comes first. After this date – or the date on which the room block has been met – SAA can no longer guarantee rates and availability. SAA advises you to make your room reservations as soon as possible to ensure availability and the discounted rate.
