There is a FIADA Room Block at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista.  You can reserve your room by calling the number above and mentioning group code "FIA". You can also book your room through the FIADA Group Page, using the same code. Reservations must be made by September 20, 2015 in order to qualify for the group rate of $139 (plus tax). 

 

***It has come to our attention that a 3rd party housing company has been calling FIADA exhibitors and attendees in an effort to get you to book a hotel room directly with them - THIS IS A SCAM! 

No one should be calling you to coordinate your hotel rooms!
