alertLook Before You Book.

Housing “Pirates” and “Poachers” are third party companies that misrepresent themselves by claiming to be the housing provider for a given convention or trade show and profit by booking registrants outside the official room block.

Don’t be misled! NMSDC does not solicit attendees for housing reservations. If you receive an unsolicited phone call or email by a third-party, avoid providing any personal and/or financial information. These companies are not affiliated or working in partnership with NMSDC, and reservations made through these companies for our annual conference and trade fair cannot be guaranteed. Please also get as much information as you can and pass it along to us.

Book your Conference hotel only on NMSDCConference.com or by contacting the NMSDC official housing bureau, Orchid.Events.
