Beware of Housing Pirates: The only official housing bureau for the 2016 DFD Meeting is Travel Portland.  Travel Portland does not make outbound calls for reservations/sales. If you are contacted by an agency other than Travel Portland offering to make your hotel reservations,  we urge you not to use their services and report them to Meetings And More (monica@meetingsandmore.net) and/or Travel Portland immediately. The rooms these agencies offer are usually at higher rates, are non-refundable, and/or carry a significant cancellation penalty.
