Please note that there are a number of convention accommodation scams. Our official convention accommodation company will never telemarket our attendees. In fact as an industry standard, professional accommodation companies do not practise telemarketing hotels for any shows. Groups who telemarket tradeshows are known in the travel industry as 'pirates' and can cause harm to your organisation. We recommend you do not give these callers your personal information. To protect your personal and company identity, take steps to ensure you are working with our professional accommodation staff by starting with our show website. Our website will lead you to online information including telephone assistance for those who prefer an alternative to our 24/7 online reservations.
