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 Uses
SHAPE America’s official housing bureau for the SHAPE America National Convention & Expo is Maritz Global Events.
To Be Safe
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 [email protected].
