The Association for Vascular Access and Hotel Engine Form Partnership to Deliver New Benefits to AVA Members


April 20, 2018 - Today the Association for Vascular Access (AVA) is announcing a new benefit allowing its active members access to exclusive corporate hotel rates through Hotel Engine, a private hotel booking platform for businesses.


This discount and its associated benefits are available immediately to all AVA members and can save them an average of 26% on rates at 150,000 hotels worldwide.


“Our members are travelers,” AVA CEO Ramzy Nasrallah said. “They’re on the road for business, for pleasure, for network meetings, for conferences – AVA members are always on the move, and that can get expensive. We had this in mind as we studied how to layer more customized, non-clinical value into being an AVA member.”


Active AVA members now receive hotel rates that average 26% below publicly available pricing. Searching for rooms with Hotel Engine is both simple and intuitive, with filter tools available to make the booking process quick and efficient. Hotel Engine also offers a free mobile app that allows members to book on the go, free cancellation and 24/7 customer support.


“Our long list of membership perks just got longer,” AVA Membership Services Coordinator Jennifer Livsey said. “Between discounts on apparel at Scrub Identity, on tuition at Grand Canyon University and to AVA’s annual scientific meeting, access to the Career Center and a subscription to the Journal of the Association for Vascular Access (JAVA), our membership more than pays for itself almost immediately.”


AVA members can visit to sign up for this exclusive benefit, using the same email address they use for their AVA membership. The benefit includes a dedicated line for members at 855-567-4683 for personalized service and assistance when booking for a group.


“We examined this benefit and found the savings at reputable chains to be significant,” AVA Director of Finance Katie Tornow said. “We are using it for our own company travel to contain costs without compromising the quality of accomodations.”


The discount can be applied to all hotels and is trusted by more than 11,000 companies worldwide, including 22 of Fortune 100 companies. Hotel Engine was also named the 2018 Supplier of the Year by MoveCenter in the Technology category. Gain free access within one business day at
