WARNING Regarding Unauthorized Contacts by Companies Offering to Book Your Hotel ReservationsIf you are contacted by Global Housing Corp., Exhibition Housing Services, Convention Expo Travel (CET), BookMyRooms.com, or anyone claiming to book hotel rooms or travel on behalf of APS, DO NOT book your travel or hotel reservations with any caller or email claiming to represent APS. APS does not authorize outside booking agents for any APS meetings. These companies may be offering hotel rates that are above/below the APS-discounted convention rates published on the APS Annual Meeting website. No one can book hotel rooms at rates lower than APS-contracted rates over APS Annual Meeting dates at the APS-designated hotels.
Many of these organizations ask for full payment upfront. Please also be advised that once you sign any agreements (i.e., credit card authorization forms), APS cannot guarantee that you will get your money back. Be aware that reservations booked through these companies may not be honored by the APS-contracted hotels and APS will not guarantee these reservations. If you have been contacted by any housing service company, or if you have any questions/concerns, please contact Betty Ford, APS Director of Meetings, at email@example.com or call +1.651.454.7250.
