Join us at the AMC, June 15-18, 2017

Conference Registration

We offer a sliding scale registration rate of $60 - $500 so that the conference can be accessible to as many people as possible. Please support the AMC by giving as generously as possible with your registration contribution. The true expense of the AMC is $150 per person. We will consider the registration amount you pay in excess of $150 as a tax-deductible gift to Allied Media Projects.

The AMC does not offer group rates. Please pay the registration contribution that you can afford for each of your participants.

When you arrive at the conference, make sure to check in at the registration table. AMC Registration is located in the Wayne State Student Center, 2nd Floor (Address: 5221 Gullen Mall, Detroit, MI 48202)

AMC Housing Information

For AMC2017, we do not have access to Wayne State University 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. Please note the St. Regis Hotel and Aloft Hotel are fully booked for June 16th. See the full list of hotel options below.

There will be shuttle service every 15-30 minutes from all listed hotels to and from daytime and AMC @ Night activities.

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
