Convention registration is required to make a hotel room reservation

To ensure that every attendee has an opportunity to reserve a room and to minimize attrition costs, you must be registered for the event in order to make a hotel room reservation in our room block. Once you register for the CREW Network Convention, you will receive a link to the Hilton Chicago online reservation service in your confirmation email from CREW Network.

The hotel rooming list will be monitored by CREW Network to make sure only registrants are holding rooms. Any room reservations within the CREW Network room block unaccompanied by a registration may be subject to cancellation. We appreciate your support of CREW Network's negotiated rates and your understanding of our hotel room block obligations.

If you require additional assistance with your hotel reservation, please contact us.
