room block pirates!
Note: Exhibitors have reported being contacted by a company called Global Travel Partners. This is a scam service. Please refer to the information below and DO NOT book your reservations through this or any other company that calls you directly. We request that you contact VDF management if you have received a call from this or any other third-party room booking company.
Unofficial housing companies use various tactics to woo meeting attendees to book outside the official room block, which can result in VDF being required to pay costly attrition fees! Sham housing companies that contact attendees and exhibitors after meeting registration opens with fraudulent offerings of hotels rooms (sometimes at rates discounted from what’s posted on the meeting’s official website), requests for credit card information for previously made reservations, or pushes to book through them immediately. Typically the company claims that the meeting’s room block is nearly sold out but they can get the attendee a good rate at an overflow hotel or one outside the room block. These pirated rooms usually come with a large cancellation fee, so even if the attendee or exhibitor figures it out—or the association becomes aware of the scam—it can be too little, too late. VDF will let you know via the website if the room block is full and we will list alternative options for hotel reservations at that time.
