June 20-23, 2016
Ernest N. Morial Convention Center

Please reserve your room at one of our official hotels. When you book a hotel outside the block and a contracted room goes unsold, HFTP/HITEC must pay penalty fees to the hotel. In addition, the inability to prove the actual number of hotel rooms occupied weakens HFTP/HITEC's negotiating power in the future.

Click on the links below to make your room reservations for HITEC 2016. All reservations can be made online by using the HITEC Housing Bureau.

Need a paper trail? Click on the PDF Housing Form.

Need 10 or more rooms? You MUST complete an online Group Housing Block Request.  

DEPOSIT: All reservation requests must be accompanied by a credit card guarantee or check in the amount equaling a deposit for one night’s room & tax (currently 14.75% + $1, $2, or $3 occupancy tax) for each room reserved. Forms received without a valid guarantee/deposit will not be processed. Your hotel reserves the right to charge this card a deposit for one night’s room & tax for each room reservation after May 26, 2015. Credit card must be valid through June 2016. 

Beware Unsanctioned Housing Providers

Orchid Event Solutions is the ONLY official housing company for this event and will NEVER contact you directly to make a reservation. HFTP/HITEC has already received reports of unsanctioned companies contacting both exhibitors and attendees for HITEC 2016 claiming to be our housing bureau. Please beware of unsanctioned housing providers, and DO NOT give them your credit card information.
