This year, we have booked the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Orlando Florida, so you can travel in style. Join us for two and a half days of food safety education during daylight hours and three (or more) nights of exploring the city of Orlando.

*FMI/SQFI reserves the right to review the event room block and remove those individuals who have not registered for the event. One (1) hotel reservation per registered delegate will be accommodated. The hotel reservation should be made under the corresponding registered delegate’s name to avoid confusion.

All hotel changes, substitutions, and/or cancellations must be communicated directly with the hotel. The hotel must receive notice of hotel cancellations or changes no later than 72 hours prior to check-in or guest will be charged one night’s room and tax fee.

No-show Policy:  Failing to call the hotel or show on the first night of a reservation will result in a no-show fee of one full night’s room and tax charged to the guest and cancellation of the remainder of the reservation.

Early Departure Policy:  Upon checking into the hotel, guests will be asked to reconfirm their departure date. After checking in, should the guest choose to depart earlier than the agreed-upon departure date, an early check-out fee of one full night’s room and tax will be charged to the guest.

Hotel reservations should be made by calling the hotel directly or using the official hotel reservation link. FMI/SQFI does not use a third-party company to make hotel reservations or sell rooms on its behalf for this event. If a third-party contacts you offering housing options, they are not endorsed by or affiliated with the event and entering into financial agreements with such companies may have costly consequences.
