The Energy and Store Development Conference has received reports that a hotel broker has contacted ESD Conference attendees to solicit the purchase of hotel rooms for the ESD Conference. Please be aware that this company is NOT affiliated with or endorsed by Food Marketing Institute. 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 —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 Colleen Bailey at 202-220-0704 or CBailey@fmi.org.


The cutoff date for securing a room at the negotiated rate of $189 single/double per night, plus tax, is 5:00 pm Central Time on Thursday, August 18, 2016. We encourage you to make your reservations early, as the hotel may sell out before this date. Reservations made after the cut-off date will be accepted on a space-available basis and higher rates may apply. Be sure to mention the FMI Energy and Store Development Conference 2016 to obtain the negotiated rate.
