Unofficial Vendor Warning: Hotel Reservation Scams
PMMI has received reports from exhibitors who booked hotel rooms through various third parties only to subsequently learn that no reservations were in place and their deposits, along with full prepayment, were not returned.
Additionally, numerous convention bureaus are reporting hundreds of complaints from trade show managers who are receiving similar reports from exhibiting companies who booked rooms through a “third party room broker” and ended up at sold-out hotels with no reservations and no recourse for the payment of rooms. These brokers falsely imply they are affiliated with show management and secure deposits and/or full prepayment from exhibiting companies.
The Official Hotel Reservation Office for all PACK EXPO shows is Expovision. PMMI has no affiliation with any other room brokers. Expovision is the only company that is officially sanctioned and certified by PMMI to book hotel rooms on behalf of its exhibitors and attendees. Expovision can be reached by phone at 866.523.0877 or [email protected]. Please contact Expovision directly with any concerns.
