For 2011 the MFPT annual conference returns to familiar
surroundings in Virginia Beach at the
Sheraton Oceanfront hotel.
We have been able to secure attractive accommodation rates for
attendees of only $139 a night before taxes (standard rates
are between $167 and $225!), along with a number of
rooms at government per diem rates, with free parking and free
internet throughout the hotel¹ included!
use the Sheraton's MFPT on-line booking system, below the room
options it states that 'high speed internet is available
for a fee'; this fee does not apply to your booking - we have
negotiated free Internet throughout the hotel]
The earlier you book
the better, since the Hotel will gradually release rooms from our
block, but the official cut-off date is
extended to 19 April 11. To obtain the MFPT rates either:
