Room Block Piracy / Poaching
Please note that similarly sized organizations have recently been the target of sham housing companies, which have contacted other organizations’ sponsors, exhibitors and/or registrants with fraudulent offerings of hotel rooms at significant discounts. As a precaution, this post is intended to keep you informed and to advise that no one from PEDA or our conference hotel(s) will contact you to request personal information including, but not limited to, credit card information.
If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room reservation for a PEDA conference, or if they advise they’re representing our conference venues, please do not provide them with any information, but collect as much information as you can from them and pass it along to PEDA.
