The Convention headquarters hotel is the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. In order to preserve the IAFF block for Convention delegates, a code is required to make hotel reservations at the Rio All-Suite Hotel. Please see the housing form found inside the delegate credentials packet for the code and hotel contact information. Locals who have received their housing form will be able to reserve rooms through the IAFF web site, by telephone and by fax with a credit card or check . Please do not contact the IAFF headquarters for the housing code -- it will not be given over the telephone.
