There are “unofficial” companies aggressively pursuing attendees to book hotel rooms through their company at supposedly significant discounts. Unfortunately, some past attendees have fallen prey to these companies and have either:  been relocated with little or no warning, lost their significant deposits, not had the guest rooms they thought they had booked, not had the hotel they thought they had booked. ONLY reserve your hotel nights via the links provided on this page or by responding to emails from Connections Housing.  If you have been contacted by another housing service, please notify Connections Housing by clicking here.
