The official Reeds hotel AT The Ritz-Carlton, Atlanta has sold out! If you haven’t already booked and are in need of a place to stay, we recommend using sites like hotels.com to search for hotels near by. Note: the closest hotel near the Ritz (our room block) is the Westin on Peachtree St.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport (ATL) is the nearest airport.

I am a member of the press. How do I request credentials?

Please email Shane D’Aprile to request media credentials at sdaprile@campaignsandelections.com.

What is the dress code?

For the conference parts of the event, the dress code is relaxed (most attendees wear business casual). 

For the Reed Awards the dress code is black tie optional.

What is the refund policy if I purchase a ticket but can't attend?

If after purchasing your ticket you are unable to attend the event you may use your ticket to attend another Campaigns & Elections conference taking place within one year of the event to which your ticket applied, provided that a ticket to the conference you wish to transfer to is of equal or lesser price than the price paid for your ticket. If the ticket price for the conference you wish to transfer to is higher than the price you paid for your ticket you will have to pay the difference between the two price points to transfer your ticket. For the avoidance of doubt, no credit will be provided in the event you transfer your ticket to an event with a ticket price lower than that which you paid for your ticket. No refunds will be issued.

Are there any discounts available?

Other than the Super Early Bird and Early Bird rates, the only reduced price tickets available are for spouses of Reed ticket holders, full-time students, non-profit employees, and government employees. To inquire about these please email reeds@campaignsandelections.com.
