Exhibitors are required to secure sleeping rooms through the official AAOS Housing bureau, MCI USA, or risk the loss of priority points. You can make or edit your hotel reservations at any time by logging in to your Exhibitor Console. Learn more about exhibitor housing and travel information here.

Beware of Fraudulent Housing Companies!
MCI, USA is the only official hotel provider for AAOS 2020. Other companies are posing as official travel vendors and may contact you offering hotels for your trip. They are not endorsed by or affiliated with AAOS in any way. Avoid dealing with such companies and do NOT provide any payment information. They may offer special prices for familiar hotels, but these offers are usually untrue and are often outright scams.
