Budget and Expenses
Book your room: The 2018 conference is held at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City. Below is a link to the FAI Hotel booking page. Most rooms have 2 queen size beds, so we suggest booking a room with fellow attendees to save on costs.
Look for transportation discounts: Keep your eye on sales through Alaska Airlines or other transportation providers. Below is a link with discount codes through the FAI website for travel deals specifically for the FAI Conference attendees.
Pay Showcase Fees: If you perform in the Alaska Room we ask for a suggested $20 donation to keep the room going each year!
Let FAI be a resource: The people at FAI understand that attending the conference for the first time can be indimidating, so they have provided a step by step plan to help guide you.
Attending FAI is not cheap, so you will need to budget throughout the year. Expect to pay anywhere at least $1000 - $2000 for the entire conference including membership, registration, lodging, food, transportation.
