2018 Function Space Request

To request function space, simply fill out the function space request form. Please submit a separate request for each function. To help you in planning your event, a list of available days and times for functions are noted below.  All approved function space requests will be assigned at the CNS Annual Meeting Headquarter hotel, the Houston Marriott Marquis. The Houston Marriott Marquis is attached via skybridge to the George R. Brown Convention Center.

The deadline to submit the function space request form is Friday, July 13, 2018. Requests will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis. Any requests received after the deadline may not be accepted due to limited space availability and will not be included in the CNS Annual Meeting Program book.

If you will be holding an event at a venue other than the CNS Headquarter hotel, and therefore do not need assistance in reserving function space, please let us know of your event, location, date, and time. We would like to be prepared to answer any attendee questions and direct them to the appropriate venue.


All meeting requests will be reviewed by CNS. You will be contacted via email regarding whether your request is approved or denied. Contact information for the hotel and audio visual company will be included in your confirmation email.

Function space is to be used only for non-educational activities.  The CNS Headquarter Hotel will not accept any function space requests that do not come directly from the CNS. 



Any violation of the Function Space Guidelines (above) may result in a penalty of a loss in exhibitor priority points.
