the AIA WMR Summit
September 29 - October 02, 2021.
Socially Distanced. Masks Required. Vaccination Encouraged.
The WMR Summit Planning Committee is excited to welcome you to New Mexico this fall after postponing from 2020. We are optimistic about the upward trends and vaccination rates in our state and others in our region. We are working closely with Hotel Albuquerque to ensure adequate space for social distancing, including additional outdoor accommodations. All current state guidelines will be followed and guests will be required to wear masks. Please click here for additional information on the Hotel's COVID Safety Practices.
The 2021 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is happening! This means hotel rooms will sell out quickly, so please don't wait to make your reservation. If you have an issue with room availability, please let us know so we can work with the hotel on expanding our room block as soon as possible.
