Sham housing companies are approaching NSTA members and exhibitors with fraudulent offerings of hotel rooms at significant discounts. Orchid.Events is the ONLY official housing company for NSTA's 2018-19 conferences with the exception of Gaylord National Harbor which is handled directly by Gaylord.
These companies are in no way affiliated with NSTA or the official conference hotels. They troll the internet and association websites looking for annual events, and then through e-mail and/or phone calls contact or draw attendees to their websites posing as a sanctioned housing provider. Please do not reserve your hotel room with them or give them your credit card information. You risk losing significant deposits, discovering hidden costs or up-front charges, or being bait-and-switched to hotel rooms the company never booked.
Booking through NSTA’s official housing provider, Orchid.Events, ensures you will be working with a reputable company, that your credit card information is secure, and that you will benefit from all services provided to conference attendees and exhibitors at the official hotels including shuttle transportation to the convention center.
If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room reservation for an NSTA conference, or if they represent themselves as the “Official NSTA housing provider,” please get as much information as you can, then contact Orchid.Events at firstname.lastname@example.org or call toll-free 1-877-352-6710.
