Housing Piracy Notice

ASHRM has received reports that hotel brokers have contacted ASHRM Annual Conference attendees and exhibitors to solicit the purchase of hotel rooms. These brokers are misrepresenting ASHRM as well as the state of the room rates and availability. Please note, these brokers are not affiliated or endorsed by ASHRM. Brokers soliciting your business have been known to accept payment without confirming room reservations. If this occurs, the hotel has no obligation to provide you with the accommodations you were expecting.

Do not fall victim to this practice. There are two official housing blocks for the ASHRM Annual Conference and hotel booking information will be made available within the coming weeks. If you have any additional questions, please contact ashrm@aha.org or (312) 422-3980.
