NATPE Housing Fraud Alert – Beware of Pirates

When it comes to booking hotel accommodations for NATPE Miami, we continue to partner with ConferenceDirect, a meeting planning company that specializes in housing management for corporate events, in order to make the process as simple and seamless as possible for our delegates. ConferenceDirect provides its expertise to more than 2,500 corporations and associations worldwide. We’re proud to have a working relationship with them that provides the best hotel accommodations and hospitality services available to our members.

We must advise you: ConferenceDirect is the sole housing provider for NATPE Miami, but every year, individuals we refer to as “housing pirates” fraudulently pose as representatives from a conference housing agency. If you receive any calls or emails from a third party housing vendor identifying themselves as official NATPE Miami housing personnel, do not provide any of your information. Hotel accommodations for NATPE Miami 2018 are only handled securely online at  natpe.com.  For security purposes, ConferenceDirect will not accept credit card information over the phone or via email. Such a request should serve as a red flag.

If you do receive a phone call or email of this nature, please alert ConferenceDirect at  natpe@conferencedirect.com  immediately. The link to book your accommodations through ConferenceDirect will only be provided via the registration process on our website.  Again, ConferenceDirect is the only NATPE Miami housing provider and they will never contact you directly to make a reservation.

Help us spread the word and share this with any of your colleagues attending NATPE Miami 2018.
