Hotel and Travel Information

SLAS2018 will be held at the San Diego Convention Center located at 111 Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101.

SLAS has partnerships in place with the following hotels and service providers in order to provide conference the best rates and convenience.

Individual Hotel Reservations

SLAS has partnerships in place with the following hotels and service providers in order to provide conference the best rates and convenience. SLAS has negotiated discounted rates at both hotels. While the hotel rates include a rebate to SLAS to help offset the costs of the Convention Center rental, in order to keep registration costs down, the negotiated rates are below standard guest rates quoted at the hotels if you are using the SLAS group discount site or code.

Both hotels are adjacent to the San Diego Convention Center. The Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina hotel is headquarters and is closest to the space in the Convention Center where SLAS2018 will be held and adjacent to the convention center via walkway.

The deadline for booking hotel accommodations at the negotiated SLAS2018 rate is January 4, 2018. Bookings made after this date will receive the group rate based only on individual hotel availability.

Warning about unaffiliated hotels and third-party booking agencies...

Please be aware that exhibitors often are solicited by unaffiliated hotels or third-party housing agencies to book hotel reservations. SLAS2018.org is the only official booking agency and any solicitations or communications regarding hotel bookings from non-SLAS employees should not be considered valid. When SLAS is notified of these solicitations, we immediately demand a cease and desist of such practices.

Please report any unauthorized solicitations to Colleen Campbell via email at ccampbell@slas.org immediately.

These groups often advertise a lower rate than is promoted by SLAS for the official SLAS2018 hotels. In some circumstances these reservations have non-refundable or pre-payment requirements and harsh and unforgiving cancellation policies. In some cases, reservations do not even exist at the time of check-in at the booked hotel. For these reasons, and to support SLAS official partners, which helps to ensure a quality experience, we encourage you to book your reservations through the processes outlined on this website.
