Urgent Hotel Notice
Please be vigilant if approached by any company or service that implies or claims to be an official housing provider for NADCA or the Die Casting Congress & Exhibition. We have been made aware of other housing companies or travel agencies that may be aggressively pursuing you, or your company, to book your guest rooms through their company at supposedly significant discounts.
When NADCA staff secures sleeping room blocks at hotels for our convention, we research the properties to make certain that our attendees will be adequately accommodated. The room block is established to ensure that rooms meet our standards and are offered at a discounted price.
Room poaching is a practice carried out by third-party companies that act as travel agencies, wholesalers, or destination management companies to solicit registrants for room reservations. Poachers often represent themselves as being affiliated with NADCA or the Die Casting Congress & Exhibition. The poacher might inform registrants that the hotel room block is “sold out,” and that if you do not book with them immediately, you may not get a room. Additional deceptive tactics may include distributing forms or promotional materials that appear to be issued by NADCA.
Furthermore, room poachers often don’t deliver on promises to customers. When customers arrive, reservations are non-existent or the hotels are not conveniently located. Sometimes the rooms have been cancelled and hefty cancellation fees have been placed on the customer’s credit card.
If you are contacted by a company claiming to provide housing please contact Melisa Ryzner, CMP at email@example.com
