Hotel Reservations

Hotel blocks for the 2020 MPF Convention will open on December 5 for attendees. Hotel information will ONLY come directly from Midwest Poultry Federation. 

EXHIBITORS – watch for an email from Teresa Sorenson regarding instructions for your hotel reservations.

BE WARY OF HOTEL SCAMS: It has come to our attention that several third party housing wholesalers (under different names but almost always from Nevada) have been calling and/or emailing exhibiting companies to try to book their rooms. This company is NOT affiliated or endorsed by MPF and we urge you not to give this company any of your personal information. MPF also did not share your contact information with this company.  

We have heard of instances at other conventions where attendees have used these firms, paid money, and showed up at the convention, only to find no room has been reserved and the hotel has no record of any reservation.

  • Many of these companies cannot guarantee a reservation because they do not have contracts for room blocks with MPF hotels. They will contact a housing wholesaler to see if anything is available to resell to you.
  • Even legitimate wholesalers cannot knowingly book show attendees into the show block. Only the official show housing provider (MPF Housing Bureau from Meet Minneapolis) can book within our room block. If the hotel determines that an attendee has been solicited or contacted by a wholesaler, they may increase the room rate to match or exceed the group rate or the reservation may be cancelled. A rate quote from a room broker is not a guaranteed rate.
  • Rooms booked through unauthorized housing companies most often are to be fully prepaid. Rather than a one-night or no deposit, an unauthorized company may require non-refundable payment of the full cost for the entire stay for each room booked at the time of booking.
  • NEVER give your credit card information unless you are 100% certain you know who is on the other end.
  • MPF will not be able to assist attendees and exhibitors who have reserved rooms outside the block if problems result from booking through an unauthorized company.

The only company authorized to book rooms for MPF is the MPF Housing Bureau, operated by staff of Meet Minneapolis.
