2017 MDF Annual Conference Lodging and Transportation

Lodging

The 2017 MDF Annual Conference takes place at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco, which is located in the Embarcadero Waterfront district of San Francisco. The hotel offers comprehensive services for guests. More hotel information is available here (pdf). MDF has secured a room block for 2017 MDF Annual Conference attendees at significantly reduced room rates. IDMC-11 attendees will also stay at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco.

Please note: The 2017 MDF Annual Conference hotel room block is open through August 14, 2017, or until it is sold out. Once the deadline has passed or the block has been filled, room rates will increase and rooms may not be available. MDF highly recommends that those attendees who wish to stay at the conference hotel or other nearby hotels book their rooms as soon as possible. It is likely that San Francisco hotels will be very difficult to book by September 2017.

Visit the hotel room block website to book a room.
