SQF has received reports that a hotel broker has contacted SQF Conference attendees to solicit the purchase of hotel rooms for the SQF International Conference. Please be aware that this company is NOT affiliated with or endorsed by SQF. Booking through unauthorized service providers has resulted in unconfirmed bookings, lost payments and increased room rates and the hotel may have no obligation to provide you with the accommodations you were expecting.

Do not fall victim to this practice — Reserve your hotel rooms directly with the hotel of your choice by contacting them or using their specific website.  Do not make reservations with any companies that contact you directly, claiming to represent any hotel or the SQF Conference.

If you have been contacted by any housing service provider and have made reservations for hotel rooms through them or have additional questions, please contact Ben Quigley at 202-220-0716 or BQuigley@fmi.org


SQF has negotiated a very competitive hotel room rate of 175.00 / night plus tax (currently 12.5%). The rate includes complimentary internet access in sleeping rooms and NO RESORT FEE. Please note: You must make a reservation with the SQF group block to recieve free internet and avoid the Hotel Resort Fee of 20 dollars per night!

SQF has also negotiated a 50% self-parking discount for SQF registered guests.


Due to record attendance, the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld has only a very few rooms remaining at the SQF rate.
