Q.Why is the conference registration fee higher if I do not stay in a conference hotel?
A: When URF negotiates a contract with a conference hotel, the association receives free meeting space in exchange for a guarantee that it will use a specific number of sleeping rooms. If attendees do not use the required number of sleeping rooms, then URF must pay the cost for these unused rooms, which could amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars. In addition, the more sleeping rooms that conference attendee’s use, the more attractive the URF conference becomes to a hotel, and the URF can negotiate even lower room rate
