Beware of Hotel Scammers when Registering the League’s Annual Conference and Expo

July 8, 2015
The League has received word that hotel scammers are at it again.
 
Some are saying hotel rates have dropped and may ask for your booking information. Beware of unauthorized housing and hotel reservation services (two examples are Global Travel Partners and Exhibitor Housing Services) that may solicit your business. They may say the League’s hotel block is sold out or use some other ploy to book you into a hotel for a room that may not exist. All legitimate communications regarding housing will come directly from the League of California Cities®. Using unauthorized reservation services may create real problems for you and the conference as a whole. You cannot be assured that your credit card information is secure and your room reservation may not actually be made if you use an unauthorized service. 
 
If you receive a suspicious email or phone call asking to book your hotel room for the conference, please contact the League so staff can take immediate action. As always, the League is available to answer your questions on any aspect of the Annual Conference. The League does its very best to ensure your participation is both enjoyable and highly productive.
