Conference FAQs

We figured that if a few persons had these questions, there might be others who need the same information.
Read on for the important answers

1. Is there still room at the conference hotel, the
Sheraton Boston?

Yes! If you find that someone tells you otherwise, just let us know at Be sure to mention that you are coming for the FGS Conference to get the discounted hotel rate of $159.00 for single/triple. The telephone number is 1-800-325-3535.

2. Is there still a discount available for registering early?

If you register by July 1st (postmark date or online) you still can save $30.00 ($155.00 fee vs. $180.00 after that date). That pays for four full days of lectures and special events.

3. I noticed that the online conference registration form is not active. Can you tell me why?

Electronics, electronics, electronics. FGS has been working on a cool new website – and as often happens, the conversion to the new look has encountered a few glitches. FGS is in the process of moving its offices. We have experienced some delays in excess of those anticipated in relocating the office phone lines. This has contributed to the temporary unavailability of some ecommerce services on our Web-site, including online registration for the Boston Conference. We thank you for your patience while the remaining issues are resolved.

4. Why doesn’t the full conference registration brochure have the traditional grid layout?

That is an easy one to answer – with the large number of lectures there simply wasn’t room for the traditional layout. If you haven’t received the brochure that has been mailed out, it will be arriving soon. The full conference program will be on the new FGS website. And that site, along with this blog, will continue to be updated with special conference events.

5. I don’t plan to stay in the conference hotel. Any suggestions on alternatives?
