A block of rooms has been reserved for Interface 2010 participants. The
rates are as follows:
The cutoff date for the special rates is 5:00 pm on May 20, 2010. Guest room reservations for attendees can be made either online using our StarGroups web site, or by calling The Westin Reservations Department 1-206-728-1000, or through the Central Reservations office in U.S. and Canada at 1-888-627-8513. The Group will be listed as INTERFACE FOUNDATION OF NORTH AMERICA in their reservations system. The hotel should honor the rates for the nights of June 15, 2010 - June 19, 2010. The Westin has made a concession to us so that all 2010 Interface Symposia attendees will have complimentary WiFi Internet access in their guestrooms. We strongly encourage all out-of-town attendees to stay in The Westin for two reasons: 1) the rates quoted are extremely competitive for the season and the location, and 2) Interface has committed to picking up a total of 280 room-nights. If we do not make this commitment, Interface will have to pay for the room nights not picked up, which could bankrupt Interface.
