Beware of Hotel Service Providers not Affiliated with Medtrade
It has come to our attention that several exhibitors, attendees and members have been contacted by housing vendors (XM Corp, TIRA Convention Travel Management) who are offering to provide room nights and hotel services at Medtrade. While these companies may have secured blocks of rooms at various hotels in and around Orlando, they are not the official housing provider for the Event.
Medtrade has contracted with Travel Planners to be the sole housing company for Medtrade. It is important to note that our participating hotels are contractually obligated to accept room night commitments as it pertains to Medtrade only from Travel Planners. Booking through the official housing company has a wide range of benefits. Securing accommodations through the official room block ensures the most competitive rates throughout Medtrade, access to official Medtrade shuttle bus transportation, and added protection from "walks" in an oversold situation.
Please be aware that securing rooms with any company other than Medtrade's official housing bureau, Travel Planners, is at your own risk. There have been many instances in the past when similar companies have gone out of business after taking the reservation and deposit, leaving individuals without hotel rooms and lost deposits.
If you have any questions about the hotels or the process, please contact the Medtrade housing company at Travel Planners. They may be reached at (855) 742-9166.
