SCAM ALERT
Unfortunately, several 529 exhibitors and attendees each year fall prey to accommodation offers from fraudulent companies. These hotel providers present themselves as our official hotel booking partner or “Exhibitors Housing”. Please be aware that these groups are in no way affiliated with the 529 Conference and their claims of having access to rooms are false. As always, please book your room through the rooming link provided above and in your confirmation emails.
