SAN FRANCISCO, CA - October 26, 2010 - The 2010 HIA Convention, which will be held in San Francisco on November 7th and 8th, is now less than 2 weeks away! As we announced last week, we worked with our hotel and the cut off date for our super low rates for room reservations at the Holiday Inn - Civic Center has been extended! We had a lot of members request that we hold the convention on the West Coast again so we hope to see you all there. If you are planning on attending please make you plans now!

Make your reservation by Sunday, October 31st, to get the HIA group rate!

Rooms are being offered at $99 for a single and double, $124 for a triple and $149 for a quad. Please click here for hotel and reservation information.

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.) To book reservations and include extra dates please call Monica Ho, the Sales & Catering Services Manager, at 415-575-5265.

If you have not made your plans to attend, please register now!
