Reserve Your Housing Now for AMC2017

As we approach the 19th annual Allied Media Conference, June 15-18 in Detroit, it’s not too early to start thinking about your accommodation!

This year we do not have access to Wayne State University (WSU) dorms for housing. All participants will need to book their own off-campus housing independently. To assist you, we have compiled a list of hotel options, and community housing resources, to help you get started in your housing search. We suggest reserving your hotel accommodation as early as possible to secure a spot.

There will be shuttle service every 15-30 minutes from all listed hotels to and from daytime and AMC @ Night activities. We will also provide a relaxation room and nap room on campus, so you will have a place to chill even if your lodging is a little further away.

The AMC is committed to training/orienting all hotels listed below on best practices for our participants’ safety and comfort. Please contact each hotel directly to make accommodations and special requests. If you have questions or need additional assistance, contact us at
