Scam AlertScam Alert: Bogus Hotel Room Reservations
It has been brought 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 TFB and is offering hotel reservation services for Annual Convention. NOTE: These companies and others like it are not in any way affiliated with The Florida Bar or Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek and should not be used to make reservations.

There is only one, official, exclusive group room block for the 2016 Florida Bar Annual Convention.

Third-party companies, such as “Exhibition Housing Services” aka “Exhibition Housing Management”, sometimes promise rooms in hotels where they do not actually have rooms. There is the potential to be left without a room and to lose money paid in advance.

Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek does not/will not make phone calls to exhibitors or convention attendees, encouraging you to book with them. 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 Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek for the 2016 Annual Florida Bar Convention.
