FAQs

Why should I come to Conference?
You might get 1,000 different answers from our 1,000 delegates! But we think the top three reasons to come are: 1) to meet, network, and learn from your peers; 2) to do your job better; 3) to know that you’re not alone – that there are others with the same goals, aspirations, and questions that you have.

Where should I stay?
The League has established a block of rooms at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center.  More information can be found on the Hotel and Transportation page.

How do I get the most out of Conference?
We jam pack three days full of learning, networking, and music. We recommend taking a look at the Conference schedule so you’re prepared for what is planned. Reading through the sessions and determining what you’d like to attend in advance is also helpful, so you’re not choosing what session to go to on the fly. Also, be sure to make some time to network with the multitude of business partners set up in the Exhibit Area. Other than that? Introduce yourself to everyone – meeting other delegates is one of the best parts of Conference.

How do I access WiFi in the Hotel?
Complimentary wireless internet access will be available in the Exhibit Area and all public spaces within the hotel. The WiFi network and password will be available at registration, and on this website once it becomes available.

What are Electives, and should I pick which ones to attend now?
There are three blocks of electives and you are welcome to choose any one during each time slot. It is really helpful for us if you select these sessions in advance so we can organize appropriate sized rooms for each. Find the full list of electives here.

What are Pre-Conference Seminars?
We know that lots of people want to make their trip to Detroit as packed with learning as possible, so for an additional fee you can arrive early and choose from one of several intensive, hands-on, learning sessions. More information about these can be found here.

Are any group registration rates available?
Yes, we offer several different registration rates based on the size of your group.  We encourage team attendance at Conference.  Don’t know which rate is best for you?  Please contact Member Relations at 646 822 4010 or member@americanorchestras.org for details.

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
The Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center is ADA accessible, including exhibit areas, meeting rooms, and ballrooms. Passenger elevators are located at street and all meeting levels. If you require additional assistance at Conference, please email member@americanorchestras.org.

Is there anything else I need to know?
Just come to the Registration Area as soon as you arrive – we’ll have all your materials ready.  Registration will be located within a section of the Renaissance Ballroom on Level 4 of the hotel.

What if I have more questions?
We love questions – so bring it on! If you have questions before Conference begins, email us at member@americanorchestras.org and we’ll get right back to you. During Conference you’ll find the League staff full of answers and waiting for you at the Registration Area.

There is so much we could tell you, but you get the idea. Have fun in Detroit– we are looking forward to meeting you!
