Housing Scam Alert

It has been brought to our attention that there are several companies; Convention Housing Services, Convention Hotel Management and Global Hospitality contacting exhibitors claiming that they can secure hotel rooms at lower rates than available through our room blocks. These companies and others like them are 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 2013 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show.  NCBA has contracted the Tampa Housing Bureau to be their sole hotel reservation services company for Cattle Industry Convention in Tampa, Florida. The NCBA/Tampa Housing Bureau will not be contacting you, unless you have initiated contact with them.

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 2013 NCBA Housing Block.
