Did you know?

Your support in staying at the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza helps keep the conference costs down, which directly affects your registration fees. SIAM guarantees the hotel that we will fill a certain number of “room nights” (rooms per night) during the conference.  SIAM incurs penalties if too many attendees opt to stay in other hotels in the area or neglect to indicate to the hotel that they are with the SIAM conference. Future registration fees could increase to cover these additional risks.


SIAM is holding a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza. These rooms are being held on a first-come, first-served basis at the following discounted rates. Please be aware the room block fills quickly, so we suggest you make your hotel and travel plans early.

The group rate is guaranteed until the cutoff date unless the block fills prior to that.  If there are rooms available after the cutoff date, they will be available at the best rate offered at that time.

Reservation Deadline – Monday, March 15, 2010 (or until the room block is filled)

Single/Double       $169.00 per night plus 15.4% tax
