Annual Meeting

American Oriental Society
Two Hundred and Twenty-Ninth Meeting

The 229th Meeting of the AOS will be held Friday, March 15 to Monday, March 18, 2019, in Chicago, IL.

Hotel: A block of conference-rate accommodations has been reserved at the Chicago Omni Hotel, 676 N. Michigan Avenue, Chicago IL 60611, USA. The conference rate per night for rooms is $209, King or Queen Deluxe Suites or Double/Double Suites.

All sessions will be held at the Chicago Omni Hotel, as will the Annual Subscription Banquet on Sunday evening, March 17. The Program, which will be accessible online in late January 2019, will provide information on other special activities and events to take place during the meeting.

As always, the Society’s contract with the hotel for securing conference rates requires that a minimum number of rooms per night be reserved and occupied by members for the duration of the meeting. Thus, your stay at the Chicago Omni Hotel assures that the AOS will not be assessed extremely high fees for meeting and banquet space rental. We truly need your cooperation in this matter.

Reservations: Either phone the hotel directly (312-944-6664), use the toll-free number of the Omni chain (1-800-THE-OMNI), or reserve through the customized Group Web Page. If you phone the hotel, you will need to identify yourself as a member of the AOS. Reservations may be made well in advance of the meeting, but no later than February 27, 2019. After this date, any uncommitted rooms in the block the AOS has reserved will be released for general sale; additional reservation requests will be accepted if rooms are available and without the conference discount. The conference rate also applies 3 days prior and 2 days after the conference, based upon availability.
