Buyer Beware: Housing Piracy Notice

AmSECT has received reports that hotel brokers have contacted conference attendees and exhibitors to solicit the purchase of hotel rooms. These brokers are misrepresenting AmSECT as well as the status of room rates and availability at the conference hotels. These brokers are not affiliated or endorsed by AmSECT. Brokers soliciting your business have been known to accept payment without confirming room reservations. If this occurs, the hotel has no obligation to provide you with the accommodations you were expecting.

Do not fall victim to this practice. There is only one official way to book housing, through the AmSECT/AATS housing link . If you have questions or concerns, please contact AmSECT Headquarters at (312)-321-5156 or
