The DEMA Show Hotel Block is officially open! To help Dive Industry professionals keep their planning efforts on track for this year’s annual trade-only event for the Diving Industry, DEMA has contracted with several hotels convenient to the Orange County Convention Center. Start your planning for the Show, taking place November 1-4 in Orlando, FL, by booking your room reservation in the DEMA Show Hotel Block, featuring exclusive exhibitor and attendee rates and benefits.
DEMA Show will again feature the Rosen Centre Hotel as this year’s Host Hotel. The Rosen Centre is conveniently located directly across from the South Hall of Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center – home to DEMA Show 2017. Those booking in DEMA’s block at the Rosen Centre will receive complimentary basic internet, discounted rates for access to the Fitness Center, free parking and special hotel restaurant discounts all at the special DEMA Show rate of $189 per night* (weekday and weekend). Other specially-priced DEMA hotel block rooms will also be offered at the Hilton Orlando for $199/night* and the Days Inn for $100/night* (*plus state and local taxes).
Limited shuttle bus service will be available to those staying within the official DEMA block hotels. All three DEMA block hotels (Rosen Centre, Hilton and Days Inn) are in close proximity and within walking distance to the convention center. There will be only one shuttle bus available for those requiring transportation or for those who prefer not to walk on all show days. Shuttle bus service will run approximately every 30 minutes from the DEMA block hotels. ADA accessible shuttle bus service will also be offered during all Show days for all three DEMA Block hotels upon request.
A SPECIAL CAUTION! DEMA would like to caution attendees and exhibitors to be wary when booking accommodations through unauthorized third party vendors claiming to work with DEMA Show. These unauthorized vendors are often room “pirates” and though they typically offer what appears to be a lower rate than the official DEMA block rate, room reservations may be offered at significantly lower quality and may not be available for the duration of your planned stay. In addition, cancellation polices with these “pirates” are often harsh and unforgiving, resulting in loss of fees or other penalties. Booking within the official DEMA Hotel Block also allows DEMA to negotiate exclusive rates for DEMA Show attendees and exhibitors in the locations most convenient to the convention center. Help DEMA keep everyone’s hotel costs down for DEMA Show by booking within DEMA’s official hotel block.
The annual DEMA Show, the largest trade-only event in the world for companies doing business in the scuba diving, ocean water sports and adventure/dive travel industries, attracts hundreds of Exhibitors and thousands of dive and travel industry professionals from around the world. In addition to providing an arena in which to conduct business and network, DEMA Show offers participants the most extensive education curriculum in the industry including DEMA-Sponsored Seminars and Exhibitor-Sponsored Seminars from participating manufacturers, travel destinations and dive certification organizations. DEMA Show is produced by DEMA, The Diving Equipment & Marketing Association. DEMA Show 2017 will take place November 1-4 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.
