In the last two years, because of overbooking of rooms at ShowEast, the Film Expo Group has experienced major attrition fees.

Here are the new room deposit policies for ShowEast 2017:

Individual Room Policy
One night non-refundable deposit will be charged when reservation is made with the Loews Miami Beach Hotel. Rooms released by Friday, September 15th will not incur any additional penalties.

Group Room Policy For 5 Or More Rooms
Any group looking to book 5 or more rooms with the Loews Miami Beach Hotel will be required to sign an agreement with ShowEast stating they will be responsible for all room nights reserved. A one night non-refundable deposit will be charged at the time of booking with the Loews Miami Beach Hotel for each confirmed reservation. Prior to September 15th, groups will be allowed to release up to 20 percent of contracted rooms less their initial deposit.
