Several Las Vegas hotels (Mandalay Bay, Delano, Luxor and Excalibur) are offering great rates for the nights of June 13 and 14. We do ask that you plan to stay both nights because we are not sure what time the vote will take place on June 14 after 8 am. There is a long agenda and the vote may come very late in the day. To find the hotels, visit https://www.nfpa.org/Training-and-Events/By-type/Conferences/Conference/Hotels . Book by March 15 for best “early bird” rates.
