Hotel Reservations
The Hilton Americas is currently sold out on most nights and an overflow conference hotel is now available. The Embassy Suites Houston – Downtown is less than one block from the Hilton Americas hotel. We have negotiated a special conference rate of $269.00 plus tax for a limited number of rooms so we encourage all to make your reservations quickly.




Once you complete your hotel reservation, you can click the above REGISTER HERE link to complete your conference registration. There is a bypass link now to click through after you submit the Demographics information. If you have already begun the registration process and have an account, you can just enter your name and email, then your password to proceed. As in the past, attendees that are not local and not staying at one of the conference hotels (Hilton Americas or Embassy Suites Houston – Downtown) will be charged an additional fee of $200.00 for conference registration. 
1. To receive the special conference rate of $269.00 per night for a standard room (single or double occupancy), reservations at the Embassy Suites must be made prior to September 8, 2015. The special conference rate is not guaranteed after September 8 at 5:00 p.m. Also note that there is a one night’s non-refundable deposit due at time of reservation. Please note that Embassy Suites Houston – Downtown provides free in-room internet access. Additional internet access charges may apply to meeting rooms. 
2. Registrations may be completed on-line following the instructions on the 2015 IEEE-PCIC Houston Conference website at Remember, a valid hotel reservation is required during the Conference registration process or an additional $200 fee will be charged. An exception will be made for those attendees living in the greater Houston area only. PCIC does not provide refunds to those that do not provide a valid hotel reservation number at time of registering for the conference.
3. An additional feature for 2015 Conference registration allows guests to be registered separately from attendees. This will allow tours to be directly associated with the guest and for use of the PCIC app. Look for the button to “Add a Guest” once you complete the attendee Conference registration and follow the instructions. A unique email address and phone number is required for a guest. It is acceptable to use a work email address for an attendee registration and then use an alias email (e.g. IEEE) for the guest.
