    Beware of Housing Pirates & Poachers

    APTA does not endorse booking hotel reservations via sources other than directly with Omni Providence via the link provided above.

    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, email, 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.
