My company performs work in multiple trades - how do I attend all the trade forums?

FCA encourages those companies that perform work in multiple trades to send representatitives to each trade forum. The forums will be designed with loaded agendas, making bouncing between multiple forums difficult. In addition to the value of the trade forums, the International Leadership Council features networking and educational opportunities that are valuable to many members of a team!

What will the weather be like?

Historically, Boston's average temperature in May is highs in the 60's and lows in the 50's.


What airport do I fly into?

The Boston Logan Airport. The Revere Hotel Boston Commons is about five miles from the airport, and the ride from the airport should take 15-30 minutes depending on traffic.

What are my parking options for the event?

Valet and self parking are available. Valet is $51/night, and there is a self-parking garage for $40/night.


What is the attire for the event?

This is your event so you can wear what you want to. It will be in the 60's in May so dress for the weather. It’s not required but you won’t go wrong with business casual for the networking events.


Will you make a special accomodation for me?
