Hotels:

            SCAM ALERT – No one from SAF, CIF/IFC or IUFRO will call you about booking a hotel room.  If you receive such a call, do not reserve a room through the offered service.  To read the entire alert click on “scam alert” above.

Our official event partner is Orchid Event Solutions. 

SAF, CIF/IFC, and IUFRO have reserved a block of hotel rooms at group rates for delegates attending either event.  Please visit https://resweb.passkey.com/go/2014IUFROSAFCIFIFC  to view options, pricing, and availability.

You MUST make your hotel reservation through Orchid in order to receive the group rate.  Group rates are not available if you book with the hotel directly.  Prior to September 25, 2014 changes to your reservation must also be made through the housing service.  Thereafter contact the hotel directly.

NOTE:  if you are planning to arrive early or stay later, some dates may show as waitlisted, which is based on the availability calendar for a given hotel – this probably means those dates are not part of our block.  However, most hotels have agreed to honor the group rates 3 days before and 3 days after the events.  Submit your request and if the rooms are available you will receive a confirmation.  If not, you will receive a notice that you need to re-book.
NOTE:  Federal per diem rate rooms are sold out some nights at several hotels.  Following is a table of available per diem rooms.

IUFRO World Congress * SAF National Convention * CIF/IFC AGM & Conference
