This year we are excited to announce that our 10th Anniversary event will occur at the DC Convention Center located in Downtown Washington DC. This decision was tough and we thought long and hard before jumping in because we wanted to ensure an exciting event for our attendees.
The other news is the entire DC metro area is in a "Black Out" the last week in June, which means there is another event that is taking up almost all the hotel rooms and space in the entire area. This means that CFUnited conference dates had to be moved to June 18th - 21st.
The main hotel for conference attendees is the Grand Hyatt, located a couple blocks from the convention center. http://grandwashington.hyatt.com/ The hotel discount code will be available Friday on the travel page of our website. The price per single room is $229. We will list the other rooms rates as well.
We hope this news continues to work with your plans to attend CFUnited. The registration and website in general will be updated by February 1st with the news and changes.
Thank you for your attention to this important update. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Liz Frederick 301.424.3903 x107 or email liz(at)cfunited.com
