AWSM will hold its 2020 convention July 30 - August 2 at the Fairmont Dallas in Texas.
Early registration – for AWSM members only – will be available from May 15-31 at a discounted price of $300. After May 31, general registration prices are in effect: $750 for nonmembers, $425 for professional members and $350 for student members. Registration will close June 25 or when the event has reached capacity. Attendees are encouraged to register early as AWSM’s convention often sells out. Cancellations are subject to a $25 fee. No refunds will be processed after June 15.
Fairmont Dallas, located in the heart of the downtown arts district, will offer #AWSM2020 attendees a rate of $169/night for singles and doubles during the program. Additional adult occupants in the guest rooms are subject to a fee. The rate is good two days before and after the convention, subject to availability, and includes complimentary internet. Valet parking is available to attendees at a discounted rate of $20/night.
AWSM previously met in Dallas for the organization’s 20th anniversary meeting, in 2007. Dallas was selected ahead of Atlanta and the Los Angeles area because of its central location and competitive prices.
The closest airport is Love Field (DAL) – which is seven miles from the hotel and served by Alaska Airlines, Delta and Southwest. Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) is located 19 miles away and the country’s largest hub for American Airlines. Other North American airlines serving DFW: Air Canada, Alaska, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Spirit, United and WestJet. As always, AWSM will look to secure nominal airline and airport shuttle discounts for attendees.
Attendees should plan to depart anytime August 2 – as #AWSM2020 will close late in the evening on August 1.
