Some of the conference hotels are sold out and others are close to it. If you're coming from a distance and need to stay in a hotel or motel, you need to be checking the conference hotels to see whether they still have rooms and reserve a room now. FGS reserves blocks of rooms in the official conference hotels providing conference attendees a nice discount on their rooms.
If you can't get into a conference hotel, then you need to be searching online and finding a local hotel or motel and book that room. According to the fact sheet on the FGS Conference 2013 website, they are expecting about 2,000 people attending the conference this year. I'll be discussing why in some of my posts. The conference offers so much and a great time is being planned for all who attend.
The other top of the list item for your pre-trip plan is to get registered. You can register on online or download a registration form and register by mail. Your local genealogical society and library may have registration forms also. The FGS Conference 2013 website also gives information about the speakers, the lectures, and everything else that will be going on. You can download the FGS Conference 2013 brochure, which lists brief descriptions all of everything at the conference in more detail.
If you are anything like me, you'll probably spend the greater part of an afternoon or evening just deciding what speakers and lectures you want to hear and what else you want to do while you're there. Now is the time to get these two vital steps taken. The earlier you book your room and get registered, the less it will cost you because you'll be able to get discounts on conference hotel rooms and probably many other local hotels and motels will be giving discounts for the conference attendees and you'll save $50 on your registration.
I'll be telling you the details about as any of the conference events, speakers, lectures, and other events as I can so watch for my posts with the FGS Conference Ambassador logo.
