Meeting Attendees: Watch Out for This Room-Booking Scam

Hotel-room poachers are third-party housing companies that profit by booking meeting attendees and exhibitors outside the official housing block. These pirates pose as the official purveyor of a block of hotel rooms for a meeting or use various tactics to convince meeting attendees to make their reservations through an unofficial company, including using the association branding. It is not a new problem, but it is a growing concern among events like ours. In some cases, attendees are booked at a lower-tier hotel far from the event location; in others, they arrive at their hotel to discover their cards have been charged but there are no reservations in their names. Associations may also end up paying costly attrition fees when a reserved block of rooms is not used.

Please make sure to only book with the APEX/IFSA EXPO host hotel. Please use links that are received directly from us or throughout the APEX/IFSA EXPO website. If there is any question as to if a link or email received is legitimate please share with APEX staff at and we will be happy to confirm for you.
