Please click here to download the Event Flyer and Registration Form (PDF file 1.1MB).

We have arranged for special room rates starting at just $99 for Sunday and Monday nights at the Holiday Inn - Civic Center. Through a special arrangement, the hotel is also offering the same room rates for a limited number of rooms for HIA members who are exhibiting at or attending the SF Green Festival, so you can conveniently stay there for both events. (You must stay at least one of the nights of the HIA Convention to get the special rate.) The hotel is close to the SF Concourse Exhibition Center where the SF Green Festival is being held.

Please note: Attendees are responsible for making their own room reservations. Early booking is highly recommended. Once our block of reserved rooms runs out, we cannot guarantee the hotel will have a room for you.

You may call the hotel to make your reservation or you may book online.

Please remember to mention the Group Booking Code: HIA when booking to get the HIA group rate and be sure to get a reservation confirmation number.
