Industry Alert: *Alert* Possible Housing Scam For 32nd National Sports Collectors Convention Exhibitors & Attendees

It has been brought to the attention of the 32nd National Sports Collectors Convention (to be held in Rosemont, IL August 3-7, 2011) that a company called Convention Housing Services in Henderson, Nevada has been contacting exhibitors claiming it can secure hotel rooms at lower rates than available through our room blocks. This company is also known to use the names Convention Expo Travel and National Housing Bureau. These companies are NOT AUTHORIZED to represent The National NOR do they have access to officially contracted hotel room blocks or rates at any of the convention hotels. If you receive a call, please be aware that there have been reports from other groups and individuals that after paying Convention Housing Services and/or Convention Expo Travel, no room was reserved and they lost their money.   We highly recommend that you do not make any reservations through any unknown housing or travel company. The official hotel reservation/housing service for our convention is CONFERENCE HOUSING. For housing reservations, please visit the Conference Housing web site here.
