Beware of Housing Scams

Be cautious if dealing with any housing companies or services that imply or claim an affiliation with AIHA Connect 2024 other than Maritz Global Events, the official AIHA Connect housing company. Be vigilant when dealing with an unauthorized travel company as many are not legitimate companies and most do not deliver as promised. Reservations made through an agency other than Maritz Global Events will be at your own risk. We recommend reviewing the list of ​Official AIHA Connect Publications and Contractors before responding to any solicitations you may receive.

Maritz Global Events is the official housing provider for AIHA Connect 2024. Improper solicitation of hotel reservations from any company other than Maritz Global Events is not approved. 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 AIHA or Maritz Global Events.
