Affiliate Meeting Request Form


The Affiliate Meeting Request Form will be available beginning March 1, 2023. Please email if you have any questions prior to March 1, 2023.

The American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) encourages exhibiting companies to take advantage of hosting ancillary meetings during the 2023 Annual Scientific Meeting and Clinical Lab Expo (ASM). All ancillary meetings held in conjunction with the ASM from Saturday, July 22, 2023 to Friday, July 28, 2023, must abide by these guidelines.

Please click "Start" to submit a request for ancillary meeting space once the form opens on March 1, 2023. This form MUST be completed and submitted by Thursday, July 6, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. EST. Requests after this date must be coordinated directly with the hotel and will be accepted based on availability of meeting space

If you are interested in having an exhibitor meeting room within the Anaheim Convention Center, please contact Michele LaFrance at or 703-679-3951.

Please note the following when submitting a request:
  • If you are submitting requests for multiple meetings, you must submit a separate form for each individual function. Do not combine meeting requests.
  • While we will do our best to honor your requested hotel meeting space, rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Hotel and room assignments will depend on the space available at the time of your request. If your requested hotel is not available, we will let you know and ask for an alternate location.
  • You will receive event approval/rejection within 10 - 14 business days upon completion of your submission.
  • A $100 daily non-refundable administrative fee is assessed for each ancillary event request submitted for AACC Headquarter Hotels. For example, if office space is requested for three days in one room, the total amount due will be $300. Events held at non AACC Headquarters Hotels will not be charged the $100 administrative fee by AACC, but are subject to other hotel fees, as determined by the venue.
  • Groups holding ancillary meetings taking place at either Headquarter Hotel, will be required to meet a Food and Beverage Minimum.
  • AACC Headquarter Hotels are the Hilton Anaheim and Marriott Anaheim.
