WARNING: Regarding hotel 'discounts' and fake attendee lists

Several Mega-Conference attendees have reported receiving phone calls from a person asking them who was making their reservations for the conference. They were asked which hotel the reservation was made with, the dates of their reservation and what was paid — to ensure that they received the conference discount.

When you reserve your hotel room directly through the Hilton Anatole using our conference link — — you automatically receive our room block discount.

If you are contacted by anyone with questions about your reservation, under no circumstances should you give them any credit card information.

In past years, we also have had difficulty with companies trying to sell our attendee list to our members.  The only way to receive a legitimate Excel spreadsheet of actual attendees is to become a sponsor or exhibitor at the Mega-Conference.

When in doubt about any requests or offers that you receive, please reach out to Patty Slusher or Paulette Sheffield in our office.
