Hotel Reservations


WEFTEC 2017 conference registration and housing officially open on April 18, 2017.

Advance group housing is available for contracted exhibitors, as well as WEF Member Associations and non-exhibiting affiliated organizations. Contact WEFTEC Housing to inquire if your company or organization qualifies (see below).


Who is “WEFTEC Housing”?

Convention Management Resources, Inc. (CMR) has managed WEFTEC hotel reservations on behalf of the Water Environment Federation (WEF) for over 15 years. Reservations at the negotiated WEFTEC rates can only be made through CMR. WEF does not authorize or endorse any other housing service or independent broker. Your primary WEFTEC Housing contact is CMR. WEF can assist with general inquiries.

Bill Delaney, Senior Housing Director
Nga Tran, Senior Housing Coordinator or (888) 301-4933 or (415) 979-2298

Tangela (Tangie) Williams, Manager, Registration & WEFTEC Housing or (703) 684-2422

Deana Gissendanner, Senior Manager, Conferences & Events Management or (703) 684-2431

CMR and WEF are routinely notified about other agencies that solicit business from WEFTEC exhibitors and affiliates. Reservations made through other agencies are not guaranteed by CMR or WEF, and could result in inflated room rates; additional service charges; placement in a hotel outside of the official block that is not serviced by the WEFTEC shuttle; unconfirmed/lost reservations upon arrival at the hotel; and/or lost deposits or pre-payments. Neither WEF nor CMR can assist you with reservation problems if you book through another agency.

The following companies are not affiliated with CMR, WEF, or WEFTEC:
  • Book My Rooms, LLC 
  • Exhibition Housing Management
  • Global Housing Services
  • National Travel Associates (NTA)
  • Room Connections, Inc.
  • Show Coordinators, Inc.
  • TradeShow Housing
These companies have approached WEFTEC exhibitors and affiliates in the past, and there are others like them. Any housing service or travel bureau that directly solicits your business should be considered suspect because WEF has not shared our exhibitors’ or affiliates’ information with any such agency; therefore, show management has not provided a means for such companies to initiate contact with you.
