Warning: Housing Scam from Exhibition Housing Management
IQPC has been made aware that a service provider called Exhibition Housing Management has contacted a number of individuals who are attending SSON, quoting the event, to offer hotel reservation services.
Please note that Exhibition Housing Management does not represent IQPC or SSON, nor have we authorized them to use our names or trademarks on information they send out to exhibitors. While we do not know enough about this third party’s intent, we recommend you reserve rooms with hotels listed on the conference web site.
Please be aware of the following:
- IQPC does not contract with any third party vendors to provide hotel reservation services. Any company saying or implying they are affiliated with the SSON event for this purpose is not being truthful, and they cannot offer you the terms IQPC has negotiated with the venue.
- No one should contact you directly to book your hotel room or offer you a “special discounted conference rate” or “can save you $30.00 off your room rate.” If you receive one of these calls or emails, it is a scam. They are not associates of IQPC.
- If you receive a phone call from someone wanting to speak to the “tradeshow coordinator or the person who is handling SSON that your company is attending,” it is a scam and they are not affiliated with IQPC.
- If someone emails you claiming to be from any exhibitor or operations department, and the email is not from a iqpc.com email address, do not share any information with them. The company is not affiliated with IQPC and it is a scam.
