Planning Your Trip

We're so excited to gather in person at the FOP Family Gathering this fall! November may seem a while away, but it's never too early to start booking your trip to Dallas, Texas.


The FOP Family Gathering will be held at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Grapevine DFW Airport North from November 16-18, 2023. The hotel is located minutes from DFW International Airport.


Registration will open on Monday, May 1! An outline of costs associated with registration is included below:

We seek the support of generous sponsors and donors to make the Family Gathering as affordable as possible. 

  • Person with FOP - Complimentary registration
  • 1st family, friend or caregiver - $100
  • All other guests 16+ - $150 per person

The deadline for registration (or to receive a registration refund) is Sunday, November 5. After this date, the IFOPA will not be able to make changes to food and beverage orders at the hotel. Registration fees are applied to those costs.


The IFOPA will offer a special room block at the event hotel at the rate of $185/night. With taxes and fees, families can budget for a total amount of $215.56/night. After completing registration you will receive an email with a link to an IFOPA-specific web page where you can book hotel accommodations under our room block.
