Beware of Hotel Poachers

If you receive a solicitation via email or telephone from any third-party/vendors incorrectly identifying themselves as an official ACRM housing representative, we ask that you please delete the message immediately, ignore any further requests, and contact Meetings@ACRM.org, +1.703.435.5335 immediately.

ACRM does not endorse booking hotel reservations via another company or source and the Hilton Chicago will not contact you to encourage bookings. We ask that you contact the official headquarters hotel (the Hilton Chicago) directly to secure your accommodations.

 

What is Hotel Room Poaching?

Room poaching is a practice that is carried out by third-party companies unaffiliated with ACRM that act as travel agencies, wholesalers, destination management companies, or exhibition services, to solicit attendees and exhibitors for room reservations. Often room poachers misrepresent themselves as the official housing provider and contact registrants and exhibitors by fax, email or phone with offers for cut-rate reservations. When responding to an email prompting you to reserve your room, please check the “from” field to ensure the sender is ACRM.

Room poaching poses numerous problems for you and ACRM:

  • Room poachers often do not deliver on promises to customers. When participants arrive, the reservations are non-existent or the hotels booked are located far from the conference.
  • Sometimes the rooms have been canceled with hefty cancellation charges placed on the guest’s credit card.
  • When attendees book outside the reserved ACRM room block, ACRM could be held financially liable to the hotels under contract, creating a negative perception of the conference and decreasing our negotiation power for future events.

 

If you have questions or concerns about booking your hotel reservations, please contact Meetings@ACRM.org, +1.703.435.5335 for assistance.
