Rooms are still available for the conference at the Sheraton Riverwalk, Hilton Downtown, Westin Harbor Island, and the Marriott Waterside. In order to keep your conference registration costs low it is important that all attendees stay at an official FMEA conference hotel. If you have previously made reservations outside of the FMEA hotel blocks, please change your reservations to one of the official FMEA hotels that now have rooms available. The hotel list is on the Conference page.
Registration is now open, and hotels are now accepting reservations for the 2015 FMEA Professional Development Conference and All-State Concerts, January 14-17 2015 at the Tampa Convention Center.
The FMEA Professional Development Conference relies on hundreds of volunteers serving as session coordinators and ushers, or assisting with registration to help keep everything running smoothly and to ensure that you experience the most enjoyable and educational conference possible. Please fill out the volunteer sign-up form if you would like to volunteer!
