Large conferences and events often become targets for companies seeking to take advantage of the attendees. Some of our attendees have recently reported to us that they’ve been contacted by third party companies for a number of reasons including hotel reservations.

These third-party “pirate” companies create websites and email solicitations offering special discounted hotel rooms for other associations’ meetings. They use web domain names and email addresses that look similar to the official versions for the conference. Often, these discounted rooms do not exist. The primary objective of this solicitation is to obtain your credit card information.

To secure AIFD®’s group rate you must book your reservation through Harrah’s website (hyperlink or phone 888-458-8471 (reference: SHAIF2).

AIFD® has no affiliation with any other company and cannot guarantee rates or accommodations made through these companies.
