Scam Alert: Bogus Hotel Room Reservations

Scam AlertIt has been brought to our attention that several “housing companies” have contacted Florida Bar members claiming to have a relationship with The Bar and offering hotel reservation services for Florida Bar meetings. These companies are not in any way affiliated with Hyatt Regency Orlando (Winter Meeting) or the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek (Annual Convention) and should not be used to make reservations. Neither hotel will call meeting attendees or encourage Bar members to make reservations.

There is only one, official, exclusive group room block for the 2020 Florida Bar Winter Meeting, and one, official, exclusive room block for the Annual Convention.

Third-party companies 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. If you have received any communication either via email or telephone from Expo Housing Services, LLC (866-319-3976), Global Expo Travel (888-252-3674 x 102), National Travel Associates (877-595-7666), Exhibition Housing Management aka Exhibition Housing Services (866-367-4414), or Global Travel Partners USA (877-312-7831), please delete it immediately and ignore any further requests. Call the Meetings Department at 850-561-5830 if you have any questions or concerns.
