Conference Hotel and Virginia Beach Location Information


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!

[¹When you 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]

Book Now

The earlier you book the better, since the Hotel will gradually release rooms from our block, but the official cut-off date is 8 April 2011 extended to 19 April 11.  To obtain the MFPT rates either:

  • Go to the relevant MFPT Sheraton reservation page (where you can book, modify or cancel your reservations at any time):

  • Call the Sheraton reservation service at 1-800-325-3535 to make reservations - and book under the "Society for Machinery Failure Prevention Technology" group.

Traveling to Virginia Beach

Virginia Beach is easily accessible by air through Norfolk International Airport from where the Sheraton is a straightforward 18-mile/30-minute drive.  The Sheraton website has additional travel information here, including approximate airport taxi fares.
