Experient is the only Official Housing Provider for the HFMA Annual Conference 2019. Improper solicitation of hotel reservations from any company other than Experient is not approved by HFMA. Reservations made by unaffiliated organizations may appear to have lower rates, however they may be illegitimate, not have the rooms to sell, have unreasonable cancellation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable. Please be aware of and report any unauthorized solicitation to HFMA or Experient.
HOUSING PIRATES: Housing Pirating is a practice carried out by third-party companies that act as agents to solicit registrants for room reservations. The "Pirates" might inform registrants that they have secured the best possible rate, or that the room block is "sold out" and that if you do not book with them immediately, you may not get a room. Additional deceptive tactics include distributing forms or promotional materials that appear to be issued by HFMA.
Housing Pirates often don't deliver on promises to customers. When customers arrive, reservations are non-existent. Sometimes the rooms have been cancelled and hefty cancellation fees have been placed on the customer's credit card. Don't be misled! And remember, unless you have initiated the communication, please do not provide anyone with your personal information, especially your credit card number.
