MACO has negotiated a special room rate for those wishing to stay at the DoubleTree during the conference. The rate is $107+tax/night. To get this discount, you must call the hotel directly and ask for “the MACO conference rate.” Hurry, this rate will expire January 16. Call to reserve your room at 952-835-7800.
IMPORTANT: MACO attendees will have the right to use purchase orders for their sleeping rooms. Purchase Orders will not be used to guarantee a guest room reservation. Attendees MUST contact Zach Hildebrandt, Accounting Manager at the DoubleTree by Hilton Bloomington Minneapolis, if they would like to use a PO. The reservations can be made by anyone (hotel staff or the toll-free number), but in order to use the PO attendees will need to send the PO directly to Zach at least three business days prior to check in:

Hotel Room Scam Alert
This year a third-party housing company called Exhibition Housing Services has contacted MACO attendees and exhibitors trying to get them to book MACO Conference hotel rooms through their service at what they claim to be a "better rate."
PLEASE NOTE: Exhibition Housing Services is not affiliated in any way with MACO or the DoubleTree by Hilton Bloomington-Minneapolis.
MACO has a room block reserved for MACO conference participants. All participants are encouraged to book directly through the DoubleTree by Hilton Bloomington-Minneapolis and within the established MACO block.
Third-party companies, such as Exhibition Housing Services, sometimes promise rooms in hotels where they do not actually have rooms or blocks set up. There is the potential to be left without a room and to lose money paid in advance if you book through them.
If you have made a reservation through this company, or have questions or concerns, contact MACO's Meeting Manager Bridget Fox, at 651-265-7855 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
