Alert: Entities with no relationship with the Bar are soliciting reservations for Annual Convention
It has been brought to The Florida Bar’s attention that a number of housing companies are contacting members claiming to have a relationship with The Florida Bar and are offering hotel reservation services for the 2020 Florida Bar Annual Convention at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek & Waldorf Astoria.
These third-party companies are not affiliated with the Bar or the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek & Waldorf Astoria and should not be used to make reservations to the 2020 Florida Bar Annual Convention.
There is only one, official, exclusive group room block for the 2020 Florida Bar 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.
The Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek & Waldorf Astoria will not make phone calls or send emails to potential meeting attendees encouraging them to book hotel rooms and will not check to see how many people have registered.
If you receive any communication from third-party companies seeking to book your Annual Convention room, delete or ignore it.
