Final Exit Network, host for the World Federation Right to Die (WFRTD) Societies Meeting, has announced the venue for the 2014 World Federation 20th Biennial Conference. The date of the conference is September 17 to 21, 2014, Wednesday through Sunday, and it will be held at the Embassy Suites Downtown/Lakefront Hotel, Chicago, Illinois.

The conference venue is the flagship hotel of U.S. Embassy Suites Hilton properties, an all-suites hotel with a sophisticated design concept and spectacular views of Chicago. Rooms are offered with the option of a King or two Queen beds; in addition, all suites have a living room/work area, a wet bar, microwave, and refrigerator and two 37-inch TVs, one in the living room and one in the bedroom.

The suite-concept will make the meeting much more luxurious for all attendees and encourage networking and socializing. The host, Final Exit Network, has secured an excellent price with considerable savings for early registration — $190 per night for early hotel registration ($225 after early registration). Conference registration will be $325 for early registration ($400 after late registration cutoff date). Early conference registration will open June 2013; hotel registration opens September 2013. Early registration will be open for at least six months from the beginning dates of registration. A conference website address will be announced in May.

The hotel is a short two-block walk to shopping on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, three blocks to Lake Michigan and the Navy Pier, within comfortable walking distance of popular restaurants in a wide variety of price ranges. Two gourmet groceries are within one block and museums, art galleries, public transportation, public parks, walking trails, and any number of other amenities are all nearby. A full hot and cold breakfast and evening reception are included in the price of the room. More details will be published in subsequent communications.

The FEN WF conference planning committee is creating an inspiring schedule with world-class speakers in the RTD movement. With the theme “Dignity, Control, Choice – Around the World,” the committee is focusing on leaders who work on the front lines of legal and philosophical right to die issues throughout the world. Delegates will join FEN hosts to share the latest news, will have the opportunity to network with each other, and will work together to promote the agendas of RTD societies around the world.

Everyone is invited and welcome to join Final Exit Network hosts and World Federation delegates and to be a part of this inspiring opportunity. Plan now to join us in Chicago.
