ACE21 Housing is Now Open!

AWWA has negotiated discounted room rates for our ACE21 attendees with San Diego hotels. Book a room in AWWA’s contracted room block by clicking “Book A Room” below or calling AWWA’s official housing bureau, Par Avion, at 866.364.9515. Room block will close on Friday, May 14, 2021 or when sold out, whichever happens first. For all cancellations made after April 19, 2021, you will be charged a $50 processing fee.

Booking with the ACE21 conference hotel block provides you a supported, hassle-free booking experience and puts you at the heart of the activity surrounding the conference. AWWA encourages all attendees to book "within the block" to support the Association, protect your travel plans and gain valuable networking opportunities. Booking within the block also helps us to negotiate valuable room rates and services for our attendees in the future.
