HOTEL AND HOUSING NOTICE
If you are contacted by ANY company, claiming that they are the "official" housing service for OSP EXPO 2013 please be advised that Practical Communications, Inc., parent company of OSP EXPO, does not utilize housing services.
THIS IS A SCAM
These companies claim to be a service provided by the event owners and offer rooms at a discount greater than the room blocks we secured with our host hotel. They sell non-refundable rooms and charge a non-refundable service charge.
We have been advised by the hotels not to utilize these companies and instead encourage attendees to contact the hotels directly.
Practical Communications, Inc. is financially liable for all contracted rooms, whether the hotel sells them or not. We work hard to secure the best rates possible at these hotels for our attendees and exhibitors. We ask that you always book your rooms under the OSP EXPO room block.
SAVINGS FOR EXHIBITORS AT OSP EXPO
We know budgets are tight in this tough economy. To help our valued exhibitors, OSP EXPO'S management team has been busy working with show vendors to help YOU save money while exhibiting at OSP EXPO 2013.
