Housing Bureau

Connections Housing is the official housing bureau for RIMS 2018 Canada Conference. In order to receive discounted room rates, reservations must be made through the housing bureau and not directly through hotels. 

RIMS has negotiated special rates for attendees. Hotel accommodations are available exclusively to registered attendees until August 23, 2018, based upon availability.

Please be advised that RIMS has only one contracted and exclusive housing provider and that is Connections Housing. Other housing providers may try to contact you and offer you a potential room that might not be guaranteed or available. Also, they may require reservations be fully prepaid, are non-refundable and may be subject to steep cancellation and change fees.

Any inquiries, changes or cancellations should be directed to the Connections Housing Team (not the RIMS office) at, or by calling +1-844-212-RIMS [7467] or +1 404-783-6024.

Don’t be a no-show! Failure to arrive on a confirmed arrival date will result in forfeiture of one night’s room and tax and loss of your entire room reservation. If you need to cancel your hotel reservation, please contact Connections Housing at

A reservation will only be considered canceled with a cancellation number from Connections Housing or the hotel. Do not contact RIMS offices for hotel reservations or cancellations.
