Scam Alert: Fraudsters Try to Poach Hotel Rooms for ALTA Annual Convention in Seattle

April 29, 2014

ALTA has learned that a company known as a room-block poacher is contacting people who may be looking to make reservations for the 2014 Annual Convention, which will be held Oct. 15-18 at the Westin in Seattle.

In emails and on phone calls, Exhibition Housing Services indicates that rooms are almost sold out at the Westin. In order to reserve a room, the company requires a 25 percent deposit and a form to be completed. Ignore phone calls and emails from this company. Hotel contracts are all handled directly by ALTA. You should only respond to phone calls or emails that come directly from ALTA.

Please go here to book a room online at the Westin or call 888-627-8513 and ask for the ALTA 2014 Annual Convention room block. Deposits are not required for room reservations.
