2016 FDFA Convention – Customs & Shipping Information

As many of our Supplier members are aware, finding your shipped materials at the host hotel and arranging for them to be delivered to your suite or booth in a timely manner can be challenging. In an effort to streamline the process and ensure you find your shipment upon your arrival at the hotel, please review the following information and note the FDFA strongly recommends using either Robinson’s or Mendelssohn’s to manage your shipping and receiving for the Convention.

Hyatt Hotel Package Receiving Information:

Please refer to the Hyatt’ Package Receiving Information to ensure you are aware of the package handling rules, restrictions and charges that may apply if you choose to ship directly to the hotel using your own methods. The hotel WILL NOT accept deliveries for the FDFA Convention more than 3 days prior to your scheduled arrival.
