Housing Scam Warning

Unauthorized Housing Companies Contacting Exhibitors & Attendees

NOTE: PAR AVION Meetings & Conventions is the official travel agency for ISSE Long Beach and as such they are the only ones able to secure low pricing on room blocks at the hotels listed above.

It has come to our attention that unauthorized housing companies have been contacting AUVSI exhibitors and attendees and identifying themselves as being affiliated with AUVSI. AUVSI has NO affiliation with these organizations and in no way endorses their services. In fact, we have had reports from other groups that many of these companies are scamming attendees by tacking on undisclosed service charges, failing to make paid for reservations and other questionable business practices. Please note that AUVSI does not provide contact information to vendors not affiliated with our shows.

If you receive a phone call or email from any company or any other travel service that is not the AUVSI Official Housing Vendor, PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND and report any unauthorized housing and travel solicitations to Erin Fitts at Par Avion Meetings & Conventions –
