Registering for Congress and booking your hotel is simpler than ever. In fact, they can both be done in one easy process, all while getting you the best possible rates.
Before you begin, make sure you take a look at the hotel and travel information as well as Congress pricing to get all of the details you need to plan your trip. When you are ready to register, just click “Register Now.” If you’re an ONS member or have previously purchased something from ONS or ONCC, you already have a login. If not, create a new account by clicking “Sign Up.”
You’ll go through the intuitive Congress registration process by selecting your registration type, and then choosing if you would like to add preconference programming, guest passes, and registration for the ONS Foundation/Pfizer Oncology Fun Run/Walk & Wheelchair or a donation to the ONS Foundation.
Once your conference registration is ready to go, you’ll move into housing. Booking your hotel through this site ensures you receive the lowest rates available, plus you’ll be entered to win a free night’s stay or a room upgrade!* Select your arrival and departure dates and the hotel of your choice. You’ll also add any attendees who will be sharing your room—this is important so they can receive a room key at check in and will be accounted for in case of an emergency. If you’re not ready to book your hotel quite yet, that’s fine, too. You can always log back in later and add housing, but keep in mind that hotels fill quickly and the deadline to book with the discounted ONS rate is March 31.
When you’re done making your selections, you’ll pay for your Congress registration and any extras you chose. The credit card number you provide will also be used to reserve your hotel room, but your card will not be charged for housing at that time.**
We hope registration is just the beginning of a great Congress experience. We look forward to seeing you in April!
*Room must be booked by March 31 to be eligible to win. Winners will be announced in early April.
**Credit card information is required to guarantee your hotel reservation. The hotel may charge a deposit of one night’s room and tax after Monday, April 4, 2016.
