A room block is being held at the Omni Providence Hotel for AACSB conference participants. Preferred room rate is 185 USD per night, single or double occupancy, plus tax. The current tax rate is 13% per night. The room rate includes complimentary WiFi. When making reservations, please ask for the AACSB room block to receive the preferred room rate.

We have been made aware that third-party companies, Exhibitor Housing Services (EHS) and Global Expo Travel, are contacting our attendees, introducing themselves as the official ‘housing bureau’ for the event. This is not the case. EHS and Global Expo Travel are not affiliated in any way with AACSB or with the Omni Providence Hotel. We believe that your information may be compromised and we would strongly recommend that you do not give any personal information, including credit card details to EHS, Global Expo Travel or any other unknown vendor.
