Hotel Room block?

Official 2017 SOFIC Hotels Are Available! 
There is only one company "onPeak" working with NDIA on hotel rooms - the rest are scams. NDIA does not sell or rent or give out our attendee lists and we do not have lead retrieval at our shows. - these solicitations are scams.

Book your hotel room with onPeak, the only official hotel provider for 2017 SOFIC.  You now have access to a select amount of the official hotel block in Tampa.
If assistance is needed email onPeak at sofic@onpeak.com or call (888) 254-0937

Third party companies other than onPeak have not been contracted by NDIA to assist you in booking your hotel reservation.
Please contact Ms. Christy Mason at cmason@ndia.org if you have been approached by a third party company.


Does exhibit space sell out in August?
Yes, we usually receive more requests for space then what is available.  All of Tier 1,2,3 were processed into their booth space and 30
companies who were new exhibitors also got a booth. 
Tier 4 was processed until all the space is taken.  We did not have enough space for all the comanies in Tier 4. 

Exhibit space applications for 2018 SOFIC will take place on the web page during the month of August.


Will everyone who applies in August get a booth space?
No, we usually run out of space for companies in Tier 4 and the "Wait List" begins.
