Conference News and Updates – August 26, 2013

We know you may be busy with back to school season but make sure you’re e-mailing us about dietary restrictions and any contact information you’d like us to share with attendees when you register!  Don’t forget to share a Q&A if you’ve registered and would like to be featured on the blog.  And join our walk team (in person or virtually) to help raise funds for FARE – we are hearing about some great VIPs that will be at the walk so you won’t want to miss it.

Great Hotel Group Rate

We are being hosted at the South Point Hotel and Casino so have a fantastic group room rate (here’s a custom link, or reference the code FOO1102) so that if there are one or two people in a room you’ll be able to stay for $80* per night for November 1st and 2nd but only $50* per night for November 3rd and 4th.  If you add a third person to a room the rate increases by $20 per night which is still a great deal!  If you’d like to look into connecting with a roommate, there is a private Freedible group you can post to.

*There is an additional $14 per night resort fee plus taxes that are not included in the group room rate.  The resort fee has benefits that include: Complimentary in-room WIFI/internet, Complimentary Fitness Center access, Complimentary Airport Shuttle, Free local/toll free phone calls, Complimentary printing of Boarding Passes (great idea!), Complimentary WIFI in Business Center, and Complimentary parking and valet.

Blog Buttons

These blog buttons for the conference were created by Tiffany Glass Ferreira (of Food Allergy Fun fame), share the excitement, November is not far away!
