NAHB Housing Pirates Warning

As the Fall Board Meeting and the International Builders’ Show approach, exhibitors and attendees often receive unauthorized solicitations from hotels or third-party housing agencies which are not affiliated with NAHB.These unaffiliated third parties typically advertise a lower rate than NAHB’s official hotel block rates. However, the lower rates may be a reflection of the lower quality of the rooms offered, and/or significantly less favorable terms that apply to the reservation. For example, cancellation policies 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 but they request credit card and other sensitive information nonetheless. For these reasons, and to support NAHB’s efforts to give you the highest quality meeting experience, we strongly encourage you to book your housing accommodations using the reservation tools provided by NAHB.Only Official NAHB Hotels hold room blocks reserved for NAHB guests. Any offers or calls you may receive from other hotels and/or housing agencies are not affiliated with NAHB and are not authorized communications, even if they appear to offer rooms at an Official NAHB Hotel.

A company called Exhibitor Housing Services, 800-217-4227, is one of the companies described above. If you are contacted by Exhibitor Housing Services, please do not give them any personal information and contact Barbara Rapp immediately at brapp@nahb.org.
