SHAPE America is alerted each year that service providers contact a
number of individuals who are attending our conference, and either (a) offer to assist in securing hotel
accommodations, or (b) state that because the official event venue has been overbooked, they will locate alternate
hotel accommodations (for an additional fee), or (c) state that they are able to sell copies of the attendee list.
Please note that they do NOT
represent SHAPE America, nor have we authorized them or anyone else to contact attendees on our behalf.
Authorized Providers and
official housing bureau for the SHAPE America National Convention & Expo is Maritz Global Events.
Several companies may reach out and claim to offer SHAPE America
convention attendee lists. Please note that SHAPE America manages its attendee
mailing lists, and will only make physical mailing address available to SHAPE
America National Convention Exhibitors. WE NEVER SELL EMAIL LISTS to
third-party vendors or agents, and companies purporting to offer National
Convention attendee lists are not affiliated with SHAPE America in any way. View
Event attendees should not share any personal
information, including credit card information, with these groups and should follow the booking instructions on
SHAPE America’s Housing & Travel page to make all hotel reservations.
Booking with unknown
service providers exposes you to the risk
of incurring fraudulent credit card charges as well as not actually having a
valid reservation for the event. If you are contacted by a fraudulent service
provider, please be sure to inform SHAPE America at firstname.lastname@example.org.
