travel Info

NFPA has worked with local hotels within walking distance to the convention center to acquire a block of rooms at discounted rates. See the hotel tab below for more information.

NFPA has secured rooms at a selection of San Antonio hotels and implemented a new reservation booking site. Orchid Events is the only official housing agent for the NFPA Conference & Expo, and we encourage you to book early for the best selection and rates.

While other hotel resellers may contact you offering housing for your trip, they are NOT endorsed by or affiliated with the show and entering into financial agreements with such companies can have costly consequences.
