Ergo-X Symposium: Exoskeletons in the Workplace
This year’s headquarters hotel for HFES 2018 is the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, 1201 Market Street. The hotel is a one-minute walk from Reading Terminal Market, where you can dine and shop in a historic setting, and less than a mile from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.
The HFES attendee rate is $239 per night for single or double accommodation. This rate expires on September 9, 2018, or when the block sells out, whichever occurs first.
We hope that you will consider staying at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, as it enables us to meet our commitment of rooms, which, in turn, enables us to keep meeting costs as low as possible. When HFES commits to a hotel, we get complimentary meeting space in exchange for booking sleeping rooms. If we don't make that commitment, there are financial penalties, and this leads to higher costs for the Society.
Also, please be aware that a third party may be contacting HFES members and attempting to have you book your hotel room under the guise that they are calling on behalf of HFES. This is a fraudulent and predatory practice—HFES does not engage in this kind of marketing, and booking through this "service" will not allow your room to be credited to HFES's room commitment. Please disregard these calls.
