The following housing and travel information applies to NEXT Conference being held in National Harbor, Maryland.
APTA's official housing bureau for NEXT is J. Spargo & Associates.
APTA does not endorse booking hotel reservations via sources other than J. Spargo and Associates.
When APTA secures sleeping rooms at hotels for our conferences (commonly referred to as room blocks), the properties are researched to ensure that attendees and exhibitors are adequately accommodated. These room blocks are established to ensure that rooms meet our standards and are offered at a discounted price.
Room poaching is a practice carried out by third-party companies that act as travel agencies, wholesalers, or destination management companies to solicit registrants and exhibitors for room reservations for society or other organizations meetings. Often room poachers may misrepresent themselves as APTA’s official housing provider and registrants and exhibitors may be contacted by fax, e-mail, or phone with offers for cut rate housing. The poacher might inform registrants and exhibitors that the hotel room block is "sold out," and that if you do not book with them immediately, you may not get a room.

APTA is committed to providing a high quality housing experience for its exhibitors and attendees and contracts for a room block to secure those housing needs. To support APTA and its efforts, and to take advantage of the special rate offered to all attendees, we encourage you to book your housing accommodations using APTA's official housing vendor, J. Spargo & Associates by May 21, 2015. Should you have any questions on housing or solicitations, please contact APTA's Housing Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
