Notice for Speakers and Exhibitors
It is becoming increasingly common across all conferences for a company calling themselves Exhibitor Housing Group (or Services, or other similar names) to contact companies and people posted on a conference agenda to try to sell them hotel rooms – allowing you to believe they are appointed by the conference organizer. Do not have anything to do with them. They have no connection to Global Engage or this conference and all reports about them that find their way back to us from other events are negative.
