The IAFF's block of rooms at the Hyatt Century Plaza will be held until October 2, 2009.  After this date, reservations will be based on availability and at the hotel's prevailing rate. 

Please consider that the IAFF has reserved rooms (the IAFF block) for the 2009 John P. Redmond Symposium at the Hyatt Regency and Intercontinental hotels.  The rooms reserved for our attendees are taken off the general market and held for our attendees' exclusive use.  If these rooms are not filled by the date of the meeting, the IAFF pays a penalty for the rooms that are held and not used.  Over the long term, these penalties will result in decreased programming, loss of meeting space and increased fees.  Please help your union by making your reservations at the conference hotels.

The Intercontinental has been selected as the overflow hotel for the John P. Redmond Symposium.  The cutoff date for reservations at the Intercontinental is October 12, 2009.  Click here to make your reservations at the overflow hotel or call the numbers listed below.
