It has come to our attention that unauthorized housing companies have been contacting APTA exhibitors and attendees and identifying themselves as being affiliated with APTA. APTA reminds its exhibitors and attendees that the ONLY company officially sanctioned and certified by APTA to book hotels on behalf of its exhibitors and attendees is Expovision. We have no affiliation with other 3rd party hotel room brokers soliciting APTA exhibitors and attendees.
