Avoid Housing Scams!

BUYER BEWARE... several housing agencies promote themselves to exhibitors and attendees as an official contractor with AOC. They solicit companies for rooms that are outside of our official housing block. Companies have experienced significant problems with these firms regarding confirmation of rooms and deposits. Official AOC event solicitations will only come directly from a email address. Please know that AOC Show Management does NOT provide your contact information to anyone other than our official show contractors. AOC is not responsible for any reservations made with any other firm.
