Phi Delta Epsilon is excited to be hosting our International Convention at the Omni Shoreham, Washington D.C., February 1-4, 2018.

Join us for a weekend of networking, leadership, exceptional speakers, personal development, and family.

You can find out more about the Omni Shoreham here: can be made online through the portal provided.

Rooms are $179/night for single to quadruple reservations.

Registration is $350/person and includes all educational events, Thursday’s dinner and reception, Friday’s breakfast & Scientific Luncheon, Saturday’s Bootcamp and breakfast, and our semi-formal Awards Dinner. Register now!

All members are welcome to attend. We encourage you to talk to your college/university about funding students visits to convention.

Each chapter must send one delegate. Delegates receive paid registration and hotel accommodations and therefore should not use the links provided as the Fraternity will make your arrangements. Delegates will share a room with another chapter’s delegate and cannot invite guests. Delegates are responsible for paying and arranging their own travel.
