A small meeting room is the perfect, economical solution for:
Only SOT Global Partners, Exhibitors, Supporters, or organizations otherwise associated with SOT may host ancillary functions. These events must be approved by SOT Headquarters, as hotels are not permitted to book meeting space without authorization from SOT. The deadline for events to be included in the printed Program is January 4. To request a meeting room, please complete the online Ancillary Meeting Form.
If your organization plans on holding an off-property event, please let Amy Willis know by February 9, 2017. The Society would like to be able to provide a listing of all SOT-related events to the city bureau and INA Security. This information is helpful in ensuring that everyone in Baltimore related to the SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo is well-informed.
After you have received your meeting room assignment, the hotel Convention Service Manager will be able to discuss food and beverage and audio visual equipment requests. All coordination for your event should be done between the hotel Convention Service Manager and the SOT Ancillary Function Organizer.
