Warning: Beware of Housing Poachers
The chances are quite good that sometime soon you will receive a fax, e-mail transmission or phone call, if you haven't already, that offers you cut rate housing for The Packer's Midwest Produce Conference & Expo. The author's apparent intent is to convince you that the offer is made on behalf of The Packer's Midwest Produce Conference & Expo. It is not. Many associations and show organizers have become the unwitting victims of these room block poachers who secure exhibitor lists from Internet Web sites and Expo databases.
DON'T BE MISLED!! These companies are NOT representatives of The Packer's Midwest Produce Conference & Expo.

When The Packer's Midwest Produce Conference & Expo secures sleeping rooms at a hotel, they do so in order to assure that our attendees and exhibitors are adequately accommodated. We also need the hotel for meeting space for the numerous sessions. This involves contracting the rooms and space with the hotel, but doing so exposes us to cancellation and attrition policies. We hope you will support The Packer's Midwest Produce Conference & Expo's efforts to thwart the efforts of room block poachers when making your housing arrangements.
