Sham housing companies may approach AAM members and exhibitors with fraudulent offerings of hotel rooms at significant discounts. Lured by highly attractive rates, exhibitors and attendees fall prey to these imposters losing significant deposits, discovering hidden costs, up front charges or being bate and switched to hotel rooms they never booked.
Of course, these companies are in no way affiliated with the AAM 2020 Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo, or the official hotels in San Francisco. They troll the internet and association Web sites looking for annual events and then gain access to email addresses for direct contact or draw attendees to their Web sites posing as your association’s sanctioned housing provider. Do not give them your credit card information.
Orchid Events is the ONLY official housing company for this event and will not contact you directly to make a reservation. Booking through AAM’S official housing provider, Orchid Events ensures you will be working with a reputable company, that your credit card information is secure, and that you will benefit from all services provided to attendees at the official hotels.
If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room reservation for the AAM 2020 Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo, or if they represent themselves as the “AAM housing provider,” please get as much information as you can, then contact Orchid Events at firstname.lastname@example.org or call toll-free 866-748-9564.
