Alternatively, exhibitors may carry in their own booth materials, provided they are able to hand carry without the use of any mechanical equipment. See Union Jurisdictions

Scam Alert

IFMA is the only authorized source for attendee lists. If anyone else contacts you with list offers, be aware that the data they claim to have is fraudulent. Please be aware that these scammers are fraudulent and these are not legitimate offers. Reach out to expoadv@ifma.org to confirm legitimacy of any communication you may receive.

Attendees and exhibitors may be subjected to inappropriate solicitation from hotels or third-party housing agencies not affiliated with IFMA’s Facility Fusion.

Poachers may offer a lower hotel rate than the rates offered in our official block. Consequently, the reserved rooms may be of significantly lower quality, cancellation policies are often intolerant, and you do not have the support of IFMA’s housing agent should you need assistance with your reservation.

IFMA goes to great lengths to ensure that every aspect of your Facility Fusion experience is of the highest quality and value. Poachers do not have your best interests in mind, nor are they committed to providing a high level of customer service.

We encourage you to book your accommodations through the official page.
Any offers from other housing agents or agencies and/or hotels not listed in our block are not endorsed by IFMA.
