Travel and COVID
Hotel/Airline Information • COVID Policy
While attending the 2022 AILA Annual Conference, stay in the heart of Times Square at our headquarters hotel, the New York Marriott Marquis. You’ll be steps away from a Broadway show, numerous restaurants, and the 75th Anniversary Party.
We’ve also arranged for rooms at our overflow hotel, the Courtyard Marriott New York Manhattan/Midtown West. You’ll be a little removed from the hustle and bustle of Times Square, but don’t worry, it’s not that far away.
Please note shuttles will not be provided for overflow hotels.

You should complete all vaccinations at least 2 weeks prior to the conference. Additional booster vaccinations may be required, and/or the time frame for vaccinations changed, with notice from AILA upon issuance of any updated recommendations by the CDC.

- Hotel and conference services may be modified or curtailed at any time if necessary or appropriate to meet COVID-19 health and safety practices.
- If you do not abide by the terms and conditions of attendance in effect at the time of the conference (as determined in AILA’s sole discretion), you will not be permitted to enter the conference and participate in person, or (if the conference has started) you will be refused further admission; and your registration will be transferred to the webcast option.
- AILA reserves the right to cancel your conference registration at any time and for any reason, and provide you with the applicable refund, in its sole discretion. If cancellation is for your failure to abide by the terms and conditions of attendance, you will receive no refund.
- Under no circumstances shall AILA, its officers, directors, employees, and contractors be liable to you (or anyone claiming through you) for any injury, damages, claims, liabilities, costs, expenses, or other loss of any kind (including death), arising in any manner from COVID-19 or otherwise arising from your travel to/from, attendance at, or participation in, the conference.

All participants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before attending the conference, and show proof of full vaccination upon arrival. Anyone providing false information about their vaccination status may be barred from future conferences and/or referred to law enforcement. “Fully vaccinated” means 2 weeks after receiving a booster vaccination, unless CDC guidelines indicate that an insufficient period of time has passed since your initial vaccination so that you are ineligible for a booster. Should the CDC recommend additional boosters, you must receive those boosters if required by AILA.
