REGISTRATION POLICIES: Registrations will not be processed without full payment. Only registered delegates will be permitted to participate in meetings with buyers in the suites. Any non-registered person found participating in meetings with duty free buyers will be invoiced by the FDFA for a full registration plus a late 'on-site' fee of $50.

DAY PASSES: Day Passes are only eligible to suppliers who have already one Full, or Basic,delegate from their company registered. Only then can they register additional representatives or brand owners to participate in meetings for the day.

CANCELLATIONS: All cancellation requests must be emailed to Refund requests will be permitted up until October 16, 2017, but are subject to a $115 processing fee.

Refunds will not be processed after October 16, 2017

HOTEL GUESTROOMS: The FDFA has committed to a block of discounted hotel rooms for the convention. Reservations made outside this block, or, at another hotel, can increase FDFA costs due to penalties for not filling the block. To avoid increasing expense that may therefore result in increasing future registration fees, we respectfully request that all registered delegates stay at the Westin hotel within the FDFA block.
