Some companies exhibiting at the upcoming National ESEA Conference may be contacted by companies offering to provide rooms at Conference block hotels. These individuals are not affiliated in any way with the National ESEA Conference or Show Management.  

Q: How did these people get my number?
A: Conference organizers do not give personal or company information to any outside group. However, anyone can review the list of exhibiting companies online and obtain contact information from your website.

Q: What if the offer sounds like a good deal?
A: Any participant at this event may purchase hotel reservations in any way that works best for the individual. Please keep in mind, however, that conference organizers will not be able to assist with any problems related to hotel reservations purchased outside of the official block.

Q: What are the risks of dealing with unknown companies to arrange hotel reservations?
A: Many disreputable companies collect credit card information and switch the reservation to a less desirable hotel just prior to check-in. Or, worse yet, they may sell credit card information on the black market. Providing credit card information over the telephone always entails risks.

Q: How can we reserve rooms in the official conference block?
A: No representative from the Conference will ever call to solicit hotel rooms. All hotel reservations within the official conference block are exclusively available through your Account Dashboard on this website.
