Scam Alert: Please be aware of a scam whereby companies alleging to be third party convention housing services contact potential conference delegates claiming to offer lower room rates than negotiated with the host hotel.  Payment for the full stay is requested in advance by credit card and a confirmation number is provided.  However, upon arrival, delegates discover that no reservation exists.  Please notify the EDCO office by email if you are contacted by such a company.
