Our room block at The Boston Westin Waterfront is sold out. And since we have exceeded our room block obligation by 40%, the Westin is unwilling to provide us additional rooms at the conference rate.
The good news is we have contracted with the Hilton Logan Airport to secure a block of guest rooms at government rate. To make your reservation at the Hilton please click on the button below, or dial 1-800-HILTONS(4458667) and use the group code MTC to get our negotiated rate. The hotel reservation deadline is Monday, July 9, 2018.
