Conference Hotels

The Westin Harbour Island has recently changed management and now has a new number for reservations. Their new number is 1-800-937-8461.

Please remember that it is important that you only stay at one of the official FMEA Conference hotels. This allows us to keep our conference registration fee low by keeping our costs for all-state rehearsal space low. If your preferred hotel is full at this time, try again in November after all-state results come out and un-needed rooms are cancelled.
