Co-Headquarter Hotels / Entitlement Rooms
The Hyatt Regency Denver and Sheraton Downtown Denver Hotels are the Key/Hospitality Hotels for RIMS 2014 and will serve as the location of many key RIMS functions and Conference hospitality suites.
RIMS will allow companies to request "Entitlement Rooms" at the Key Hotels for company VIPs, executive staff, etc. These rooms are not complimentary and will be billed to each company at the confirmed conference rate.
Rooms entitled at Key Hotels are guaranteed to be available through August 12, 2013.
Requests received after this date will be processed based on availability. The total number of entitlement rooms that can be requested will be based on booth size. Please refer to the chart below to determine how many rooms a company is allowed to request. Please note there is no guarantee that all rooms will be accommodated in one hotel, but we will try our best to meet your needs. Suites reserved at key hotels will be counted towards your room block commitment.

All exhibitors must be registered for the Conference. Please be advised that we will be conducting an audit of exhibitor room block usage at RIMS 2014. If it is determined that exhibitor rooms were provided to clients, then we will decrease those exhibitors' room block accordingly for RIMS 2015. In addition, any room blocked for any individual who is not registered as an ECOMP or Exhibitor Personnel will be subject to a $100.00 fee per room night. If you receive an invoice, and you have cancelled the reservations, you will need to provide a cancelation number from Travel Planners or the Hotel.
Early bird registration fees will be in place through February 21, 2014 for attendees and exhibitors are encouraged to order booth badges prior to March 21, 2014, as all fees will increase after these dates.
Until January 27, 2014, the Group requesting the housing block may release up to 10% of the Total Room Nights booked without penalty. Should the actual rooms utilized (i.e., Total Room Nights booked less no shows and cancellations) be less than 90% of the Total Room Nights booked, the Group agrees to pay RIMS for the number of Sleeping Rooms not utilized up to 90% of the Total Room Nights booked.
Example: Group contracts 100 rooms, 10% allowance for release
90 room nights - Guaranteed
80 room nights - Actually Utilized
10 room nights - Variance
10 room nights (x) cost of room, inclusive of tax and occupancy charges, is the dollar amount due and payable to RIMS within thirty (30) days of the conclusion of the Conference.
