Hotel Reservations for Petfood Forum & Petfood Innovation Workshop 2019

The hotels listed below offer reduced rates for attendees of Petfood Forum. Rooms are available to pre-registered, Petfood Forum attendees and exhibitors on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the high demand at our headquarter hotel, only pre-registered attendees and exhibitors of Petfood Forum 2019 and Petfood Innovation Workshop may reserve hotel rooms within the Petfood Forum room block.

Group rates will be available until March 25, 2019 or until the room blocks are full. 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: In order to ensure the best possible rate and room availability, each room reservation requires a two-night, non-refundable deposit upon reservation. If reserving rooms outside of the event date, call the hotel directly to inquire about availability.

PLEASE BE AWARE: In order to appropriately and safely secure your hotel rooms, please use the links below to ensure you are booking within the official Petfood Forum room blocks. We do not affiliate with anyone that conducts telephone or email solicitations for booking hotels and do not recommend you arrange your hotel reservations with any of those groups.
