In accordance with our ANSI-approved Procedures for Standards Development, API’s standards development process:

Participation in API standards activities is open to all parties (persons and organizations) that have a direct and material interest in the subject of a standard.

API seeks broad input to its standardization activities including the participation of all parties representing interest categories appropriate to the nature of the standard and allows for open attendance at standards meetings.

API develops industry standards based on consensus. Consensus is established when substantial agreement has been reached by directly and materially interested parties that are voting members of the committee/consensus body.

Online Reservations

Room Rate: $249 single or double occupancy
Mention the API 2023 Fall COPM, to receive the API group rate.

Reservations questions: If you need additional assistance, please call 303-410-5000.

Reservations Deadline: Monday, September 25, 2023, or until room block is sold out.
After this date and time, reservations will be accepted on a space and room type availability basis and at the hotel’s best rate available.

Room Guarantee and Reservation Cancellation: A credit card guarantee is required to confirm and hold everyone’s reservation. Cancellations must be received by the hotel at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to arrival and a cancellation number must be obtained or the card will be charged for the first night’s room rate. The hotel is responsible for informing guests of this requirement. API assumes no responsibility. Any payments received by the hotel as a result of late cancellations or no-shows will be credited to API’s room block for attrition purposes.

Avoid Housing Scams

Note: API has not contracted with any third party for hotel arrangements and will not call or email you directly to make housing arrangements on your behalf.

Should you receive a call or email from a third-party provider, please collect as much information as you can and let us know immediately. “Room Poachers” have been known to act as representatives of API, or authorized providers of API, to offer room discounts or alternative accommodations to our attendees – often to the attendee’s detriment. These companies are not affiliated with API, and reservations made through these companies for our meeting cannot be guaranteed.

How It Works

This deceptive practice (called “room poaching”) is carried out by third‐party companies that act as travel agencies, wholesalers, or even API to solicit registrants for room reservations. The poacher might inform registrants that the hotel room block is “sold out,” and that if you do not book with them immediately, you may not get a room. Room poachers make it more difficult for us to meet our room block commitments, and expose us to penalties and increased room rates for our events. Room poachers often don’t deliver on promises to customers. When customers arrive, reservations are non‐existent or the hotels are not conveniently located. Sometimes the rooms have been cancelled and hefty cancellation fees have been placed on the customer’s credit card.

Don’t Be Deceived

If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room for the API Conference, please get as much information as you can (their name, company name, phone number, etc.) and pass it along to [email protected]. Always make your room reservation directly with the information provided by API or a trusted source.

API will use all legal means possible to prevent these groups from operating.

Please contact [email protected] with any questions.
