We ask all attendees to use the designated housing bureau or contracted hotel property. This ensures the best possible rates and also protects your room reservation. If you are approached by any other company or service other than Aviation Week’s official vendors who imply or claim to be the "Official Housing Provider" for the MRO Events, please alert us by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org (Lydia Janow, Director/Events).
We have been made aware of other housing companies that may be aggressively pursuing you, or your company, to book your guest rooms through their company at supposedly significant discounts. Reservations made through an agency other than Aviation Week’s approved vendors will be at your own risk.
Learn more about Housing Poachers and how to protect yourself. (please link this to a pop-up with the information below):
Room poaching is a practice carried out by third-party companies unaffiliated with Aviation Week’s MRO Events. They present themselves as travel agencies, wholesalers or destination management companies and solicit attendees and exhibitors for room reservations.
The poacher might inform a participant that the hotel room block is “virtually sold out,” and that if they do not book immediately, he or she likely won’t get a room for our events. Implied affiliation with the event is strong, despite the fact that the organization is not officially sanctioned by the sponsoring association. Additional deceptive tactics include distributing forms or promotional materials that appear to be issued by show management.
Room poachers make it more difficult for show producers to meet room block commitments and exposes them to unplanned fees. Room poachers often don’t deliver on promises to customers. When participants arrive, the reservations are non-existent or the hotels are located far from the venue. Sometimes the rooms have been cancelled with hefty cancellation charges placed on the guest’s credit card. Poachers often represent themselves as being affiliated with the exhibition or meeting by using trademarked logos in violation of copyright laws.
Such companies to avoid include but are not limited to:
MRO Baltics, Eastern Europe, and Russia (BEER) offers attendees the opportunity to build new relationships and forge stronger partnerships to ensure short and long term success.
