Pirate Housing Companies
Please be advised that onPeak is the only official hotel reservation agency working with AIMExpo. As some of you know, "pirate housing companies" are a threat we've had to deal with in the past. These are companies that claim to be affiliated with AIMExpo, offering to help book discounted hotel rooms for our show in September.
In most cases, when you book your room with these unscrupulous companies, your reservations CAN'T be changed, cancelled or modified in any way without significant penalties. In some cases, attendees have booked through these "discount providers" and have arrived at the hotel only to find they don't have a reservation at all. Any company other than onPeak claiming to be affiliated with or representing AIMExpo, and implying that our room blocks are full, or that there is a limited supply of rooms left in Columbus during our show is giving you erroneous information.
Below is a list of pirate housing companies who have contacted exhibitors in the past and should be avoided:
- CBS - Corporate Booking Services
- Convention Housing Authority
- EHM - Exhibition Housing Management
- EHS - Exhibitor Housing Services
- Events Plus Inc
- Global Housing Corp
- Global Housing & Lodging Services
- TS Housing
