IBS Registration: Beware of Solicitation from Unofficial Hotels or Housing Agencies for IBS


Registration for IBS Opens September 3, 2013.

Please be aware that as NAHB’s International Builders’ Show® approaches, exhibitors and attendees often receive unauthorized solicitations from hotels or third-party housing agencies not affiliated with NAHB.

These unaffiliated third parties typically advertise a seemingly enticing lower rate than NAHB’s official IBS hotel block rates. However, beware, because the lower rates may be a reflection of the lower quality of the rooms offered, and/or of significantly less favorable terms that apply to the reservation.

For example, cancellation polices imposed on guests who book with such third parties are often harsh and unforgiving. And in other cases, these groups turn out not to have any rooms available on the relevant dates at the low rates they advertise. For these reasons and to support NAHB’s efforts to give you the highest quality IBS experience, we strongly encourage you to book your housing accommodations using the reservation tools provided by NAHB.

Only hotel properties listed on hold IBS room blocks reserved for NAHB guests. Any offers you may receive from other hotels and/or housing agencies are not affiliated with NAHB or the International Builders’ Show and are not authorized communications, even if they appear to offer rooms at an official NAHB Hotel.

Please contact Barbara Rapp at NAHB if you receive a solicitation from an unaffiliated third party or if you have any questions.
