The GSA per diem for Chicago FY2021 is $218 per night through September 30, 2021. The FY2022 rate will be announced in September 2021, and will go into effect on October 1, 2021. An announcement will be sent at that time along with an updated email confirmation reflecting the rate change.
The government per diem rate is intended for United States Federal Government employees and military personnel. A valid Federal Government or Military ID must be presented upon check-in. Please contact your hotel to verify their specific policies. If the hotel does not extend the per diem rate to your branch of government, your room will be charged at the WEFTEC group rate.
Alert! Convention Management Resources (CMR) is the official hotel management company for WEFTEC. No other hotel management company or travel agency is authorized to place reservations on behalf of the Water Environment Federation. Other agencies have not entered into agreements with the Chicago hotels and are not able to guarantee rates and accommodations during the dates of the conference. Should you be contacted by any agency other than CMR, please send us a message.
