San Diego and the SDCC

All events will be held at the award-winning San Diego Convention Center, located just steps from both the Pacific Ocean and the city’s vibrant Gaslamp Quarter. San Diego is full of historic, cultural, and outdoor activities, and offers a variety of world-famous attractions, such as the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, Balboa Park, and over 70 miles of beautiful beaches. The Convention Center and nearby hotels are just three miles and a ten minute taxi ride from the San Diego International Airport.

Overnight Accommodations

The San Diego Marriott Marquis hotel, located next door to the convention center is offering Dam Safety 2014 attendees deluxe guestrooms at the conference rate of $199 plus tax per night, single or double occupancy. To receive the discounted rate, visit the custom Dam Safety 2014 reservations website, or call Marriott Reservations at 877-622-3056 and mention the Association of State Dam Safety Officials conference.

WARNING: Possible Housing Scam. Unfortunately, it has been brought to our attention that there are companies trying to scam our exhibitors and sponsors with fraudulent hotel bookings. ASDSO is working through the proper channels to stop these scammers, and we express our sincerest apologies to those who have been contacted by one of these entities.

If you are contacted by a company called "Exhibition Housing Management" (EHM, or any other company name), telling you they are the official housing service for the Dam Safety 2014 conference, please do not do business with them.  The company is in no way affiliated with the Dam Safety 2014 Conference. ASDSO does not have an official travel agent; nor does it utilize a guestroom housing service.

ASDSO does not provide or sell a list of attendee, sponsor, or exhibitor information to any one prior to the conference, including the Marriott. You will not be contacted for a room or travel booking. The only way to reserve a hotel room at the ASDSO group rate is for YOU to initiate contact with Marriott at 877-622-3056, or on-line via the custom reservations link above.  Following is a list of known entities and phone numbers reported to be offering scam hotel deals:

• Exhibition Housing Management (EHM) or Exhibition Housing Services (EHS)
• Global Housing
• (800-982-1409), (866-367-4414)

Note: ASDSO is financially liable for all contracted rooms at the Marriott Marquis, whether they are all sold or not. This is why we respectfully ask all attendees to book rooms under the ASDSO room block. We work diligently to give all you the best overall experience at the national conference and ask for your continued support.  Thank you for passing this along to anyone you think may benefit.
