Adam Campbell 800-217-4402 x 102 "urgently" needed to reach the tradeshow coordinator for our group attending a show in China. When I called to investigate, the connection was crummy (was clearly transferred overseas). It was also suspicious that the guy who answered the phone sounded EXACTLY like the guy I asked to be transferred to. "Adam" was deeply concerned about our room block and wanted to make sure we had accommodations.

Folks, please don't book your hotel rooms with people who call you out of the blue and who you KNOW aren't the official housing company for your trade show. You might show up at the event to find you don't have a room and you are out all the money you spent on it. Not worth the few dollars you might "save" on the hotel room.

Had an email from 'Tom Allen' at Exhibitor Housing Management claiming that he was representing a hotel that we would be attending a conference for. They claimed that they could save us £20.00 on the original booking to which I thought that this was great. Warning Signs then appeared when they ask you to fill in an online booking PDF file which is very poorly put together. Unfortunately we did not notice this until after we had completed this and have called to cancel everyday from 12.05.2014 - today (03.06.2014) and have only been answered to once to which they hung back up. We have given up disputing charges and are now just trying to wind them up continuously reporting them to Trading Standards etc.

below are contact details for the scammers..

Okay so, these guys are usually pretty polite when they call, and (though we've never booked with them) I have a feeling they're at least somewhat legit. HOWEVER, they never want to disclose the name of the company they work for, so they won't be getting our business. "Calling on behalf of ______" doesn't cut it. When pressed further for information regarding their actual employer, I was flat out lied to.

SCAM - Contacting re: reservations for Healthy Beverage Expo. Take your credit card number, and then what - no room.  Book rooms only through links and phone numbers provided by the conference organizer. Do not follow links from this reporting site either, go to main hotel sites.

Called regarding the Healthy Beverage Expo.  Pressured sales saying only 5 rooms left in exhibitor block.  When I indicated our trade show manager would follow the HBE instructions only, he pushed that he should be called.  When I mentioned that I was familar with hotel pirate firms and how they take credit card numbers but don't make reservations, he hung up.

Called me and didn't leave message (I screen my calls and don't answer strange numbers). Called back again within 30 seconds but terminated the call after 2 rings, suggesting that the caller had hit re-dial accidentally, instead of moving down a list.

Probably a scam, though it sounds like an entertaining one, judging by the comments. Perhaps I should have picked up after all....it's a slow day at work. ;-)

A very pushy woman called from this number asking to speak to the person in charge of booking the reservations for a trade show in Vegas. I told her we were all set and out reservations had been made. She said she knew that and asked if we received notice of the new rates. From the noise in the background you could tell this was a high volume call center, not the hotel. Do not provide this company your information they pose as affiliates of what ever trade/conference event your company may attend.

I was away from my desk and the caller left a message for the Event Coordinator (yeah, that's me) and I was to "...call immediately".  Biggest boo-boo was to mispronounce the name of the event.  The event is known by it's initials NOT the "word" the caller turned it into.  I ONLY book housing thorough official event links.  I wish these morons (and all the other ones with a similar script would stop calling me.

This is a spam call. If they tell you that they are sponsoring the hotels for the Society of Cosmetic Chemists trade shows, it is a lie.

They have absolutely no relationship with the Society. Please disregard their messages.

Total Scam.  Elena just left me a message about a tradeshow we are attending in Mexico City.  I'm the one who organizes all the tradeshows in our company.  So it's funny that I had no idea we were even attending.  Watch your back with these companies.  They promise you cheap hotel rates and then when you get to the hotel to check-in, rooms aren't available.  And when you try to call them to help you, they won't answer.  I know a company this happened to and it bit them in the back end.

We are showing at an exhibition coming up and at first they said they were associated with them.  When I said we have a rep through the trade show, he said he was calling on their behalf.  I took the number to google.  I checked my email first, and found a message from our rep warning us of the scam.

Just got a Voicemail from this number. Linda at extension 107.  She said she was with an organization that I am exhibiting with in April, but pronounced the name of the conference wrong.  She said that there was a "problem about the conference" and that I "needed to call her back right away".  That was a flag that sent me to google the number and see that she was being dishonest, at best, trying to get me to call.

We were called by someone claiming to be from a conference organizer's housing service. They knew our details (e.g. the names of people who would be attending the conference), and told us that rooms were selling out fast. We were advised that it was 'safer' to book now, as we could cancel any time up until 30 days before the event.

We booked 3 rooms, each for several nights, at a rate that seemed reasonable. Despite advice to the contrary, we soon received a credit card charge for more than the first night's stay, including all sorts of extra charges. I called to complain to EHS, but they do not answer their calls. I called the hotel directly, and found that EHS had made reservations on our behalf, but that the hotel themselves were offering special conference rates for the room - $90 per night cheaper than we had paid. There were plenty of rooms available. Even the hotel's regular room rates were readily available and $20 per night cheaper than we had paid.

We have opened a dispute with our credit card company and wait to see the outcome.

Googled the number before calling so I knew what I was dealing with:
The first warning sign is when they answer the phone they sound shocked that you're calling. Hold on let me find your files - which mean, let me find which website I called you from....
They verified we were attending the particular expo.
Asked if we had booked hotel rooms yet. I said yes we used miles at the Hilton. They still proceeded to ask how much we paid for the rooms. when I said I don't have that information, they said he'd hold and wait for me to find out.

We are dealing with this situation now, for our January conference. They are offering a rate that is $16 a night cheaper than ours. Our rate waives/includes the "resort fee" of $25. we do not know that theirs does, but I doubt it. Our arrangement for meeting and show space is tied to our room block guarantee, so it is an issue for us.

We know for certain they do not have access to our exhibitor/attendee contact list. That is in the hands of a family business that we have worked with for many years on many conferences. We did stop publishing a list of attendees on our site a year ago and suspect there is some sort of data mining possible for these guys to extract the contacts from those lists.

They are just some poor schmucks trying to make a living. We don't like the way they do it, but they haven't had much success with our group.

Today, 9/23/13  received a call from 800-217-4402 trying to assist me in booking room for the convention in New Orleans.  In less than a minute you could tell something was inappropriate about the call.  When I asked the name of the company they hung up on me.  A return call got a dead end voice mailbox.  Another call got a woman who said she would take me off the call list and identified the name of company as Exhibitor Services, a Travel Agency.  She apologized and then hung up on me.

A quick search on the Internet reveals multiple complaints and scams associated with this number.  They are presenting themselves as an affiliation of the NBAA.

Hi, as mentioned above, They called us twice this week and they leave us a message (I'm in sales & marketing), asking to call back in emergency to benefit their discounts at hotels in connection with certain well known "trade-shows".

So I typed the phone number on google and here I am.

Confirmation that it is 100% a scam, since I already personally lost over $ 3,500 about 4 years ago to buy a car online), I can now tell you that their methods are developed, but it is still easy to discern right from wrong.

- They don't give a true full name (often a random firstname)
- Private phone
- Unnamed company (no web-site / company not mentioned in business directory)
- They ask for personal information very quickly.
- Put pressure on the fact that we must act quickly to save.
- They follow up call/email very closely without necessarily naming or whether same contact person.
- Give fuzzy information about exposures in this case (in my case, it was the same for the purchase of a car).

Do not waste your time / money / energy to answer them, if you can denounced this issue to an agency that protects people from online crimes and REMEMBER that in life, there is rarely something free/ if it's too good to be true, it is probably a trap.

Peace & take care!

Received a call from this number asking questions about our reservations for a trade show in December. They claimed to be "with" the hosting hotel asking: Have we made reservations? Are they with the hosting hotel? Oh look, the price has dropped and we can offer you this lower price if you change your reservation! How many rooms did we book? We did not give out the information.

This is a classic scam tactic. Don't give out any information, period. Always contact the hotel directly if you have questions about your reservations.

The calls actually originate from cell phones in the 310 area code, not the 800 number they allege in their messages.  Today's voicemail was from Linda, claiming to be with an upcoming trade show.  She mispronounced the name of the show and asked, "Please call me back immediately," without mentioning what her call was about.  Legitimate businesses do not leave messages like that.

A woman named Linda left a voicemail that she needed to get in contact with the person in charge of the upcoming X conference. I had gotten several of these calls before, but she actually left an extension for me to call her back. I did call, wondering if they'd answer with a company name. Like a comment previously stated, it was just "how may I help you?" and even when I transferred to Linda's extension she just said "how may I help you?" I asked her directly several times what company she was with and she just said she was calling for X conference. I told her we weren't interested. My contact at that particular conference told me the last time we got a call from this number that it was not them and to not give them our business.

SRO - were you able to tie GES to EHS?  We just started getting calls from exhibitors that EHS is soliciting them.  We use GES as well, and I'm trying to determine if there is a link - or who else might have sold EHS the info.  I'd also appreciate any suggestions as to what the 'scam' is, and how EHS is making money at this.

One of our guests received a call from this # claiming he was Stephen Lear with our hotel's reservation department, advising her that her room rate was being discounted! Total scam.  Fortunately, she was wise enough not to give him any of her credit card information!

When I called the # back, they answered with "how may I help you?" not a company name.  Had to ask several times for the company name and that's when he said EHS IT Department.

Got a call from this number. They left a voicemail saying that they were calling from xx Association where we are booked to exhibit, and then left this number to call back. First red flag: They had the audacity to say they were calling as a representative of the actual Association, and then it became clear when I called back that they were not. They answered this number without an identifier. I asked what company it was, and they said, "Who are you trying to reach?" I hung up and googled this number to see there is a history of scams. I strongly suggest everyone else hang up and don't call back. Possible foreign scam. Definite crooks, liars, and thieves.
