When individuals book hotel accommodations through poachers or pirates the consequences can be costly; event participants may be left without hotel rooms when they arrive at the event and incur fraudulent charges on their credit cards. Please report any unauthorized solicitation to conferences@iafc.org

Speakers Were All Very Professional

FRI Denver was fantastic. It was my first one. The speakers were all very professional and I filled a notebook taking notes.
