It has come to our attention that a housing company named "National Travel Associates" (877-595-7666) and “Exhibition Housing Management” aka “Exhibition Housing Services” (866-367-4414), as well as "Global Travel Partners (USA)" (877-312-7831) all claiming to have a relationship with Gaylord Palms Resort and is offering hotel reservation services for Annual Convention. These companies and others like it are NOT in any way affiliated with The Florida Bar or the Gaylord Palms and should NOT be used to make hotel reservations. There is only one, official, exclusive housing block for the 2014 Florida Bar Annual Convention — Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center.
Note: The Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center does not make phone calls to members, exhibitors or attendees, encouraging you to book with them. Our group room rate at the Gaylord Palms is $193. If you have received any communication either via email or telephone, please delete it immediately and ignore any further requests. Please let The Florida Bar Headquarters know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center for the 2014 Annual Florida Bar Convention.
