We want to your presentation to run seamlessly. At the same time, we must follow all rules and regulations of the facility. Please help us by noting:

  • Room sets (head tables, chairs, AV, etc.) and capacities are approved in advance by the facility and the DC Fire Marshal. Room sets, once approved, must remain as indicated on approved floor plans or AIHA will incur change fees. Speakers and moderators agree they will not move any items (other than those brought by the speakers into the rooms) preset by the facility or AIHA.
  • Audiovisual equipment must be provided by AIHA’s exclusive provider. Requests for AV other than that outlined to presenters in advance by AIHA must be paid for by the speaker to AIHA before equipment will be provided. Speakers may not provide audiovisual equipment of any kind in their session rooms, including handheld polling devices.

If you think you will need accommodations to any of the above listed items – for any part of your session – please let AIHA staff know immediately. We are happy to work with you on a solution that will ensure success of your session AND compliance with our contract with the hotel.
