Convention Housing Scam Alert!


It has been brought to our attention that a company called Global Events Group has been contacting exhibitors claiming it can secure hotel rooms through our room blocks. This company is NOT AUTHORIZED to represent the Cattle Industry Convention or NCBA, NOR do they have access to officially contracted hotel room blocks or rates at any of the convention hotels.
Please be aware that other non-official housing companies may target you to make hotel reservations for the 2014 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show.  NCBA has contracted the Nashville Housing Bureau to be their sole hotel reservation services company for Cattle Industry Convention in Nashville, Tennessee.
Securing rooms with any other company other than NCBA 's Official Housing Bureau is at your own risk.  There have been instances in the past when similar companies have gone out of business after taking the reservation and deposit, leaving individuals without hotel rooms and lost deposits.  NCBA will not be held liable for any issues resulting from booking any rooms outside of the official 2014 NCBA Housing Block.
The Official 2014 Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show Exhibitor Housing & Registration will open September 23, 2013.
