Please know that there will be a room designated for on-site meetings on a first come first serve basis at the Moscone Center South Hall, Room 234. A sign-up sheet will be on the door of the room each morning with time blocks throughout the day available for sign-up. Attendees will not be able to sign-up for time-slots prior to the day of, and once a time as been claimed for that day, it is no longer available.

Note: letters of notification regarding space requests submitted by the deadline of 15 September will be distributed in mid-November.

Important Note: AGU policy outlines that requests from commercial institutions will not be accepted. Space will be available to for-profit companies only if they are an official Fall Meeting sponsor.

Payment and Confirmation Process

There is a $100 room rental fee, per day, per room. Once the event is scheduled, organizers will receive notification by mid-November confirming meeting space and payment instruction. To guarantee the event space, payment must be received by 14 November 2014; otherwise, the event request will be cancelled. Due to AGU’s contractual obligations to its vendors, no refunds will be issued after that date. AGU will put the organizers in contact with the appropriate catering and audiovisual representatives; the organizers will then work directly with those service providers and be responsible for all expenses associated with the event.
