If you receive a call from “Exhibitor Housing Service” requesting that you book your accommodations for the ABC through their service, PLEASE DO NOT USE THEM. This is a scam service that trolls the internet looking for conferences, takes that information and pretends to be contracted by the event’s hotel to book rooms on their behalf. If you receive a call from anyone at this company, DO NOT book with them under any circumstances.  If you did book a room through their service, you should check with the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel as you may not actually have a room at the hotel.
