When calling to reserve a hotel room, request the room block for the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo.

Rosen Plaza Hotel
9700 International Drive,
Orlando, Florida 32819

The host hotel for the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo is the Rosen Plaza Hotel. No one from the hotel or the MDCE will call you to solicit your hotel reservation for MDCE. Any travel agencies or housing bureaus that indicate they are representing MDCE or affiliated or unaffiliated hotels are perpetrating a fraud and are looking to secure your credit card information.

Reservations made by unaffiliated organizations may appear to be for lower rates, however they may be illegitimate, have unreasonable cancellation or change penalties or be completely nonrefundable. If you receive a phone call or email, MDCE strongly recommends that you DO NOT make your hotel reservations with them.

Please be aware of and report any unauthorized solicitations to Susan Clement with MDCE at 763-383-4454 or
