Question

I was contacted by a housing provider that offered to assist with making my Convenience Store Women's Event hotel reservation. What should I do?

Answer

Warning from The Convenience Store Women's Event (CSW) of potential “poachers”: The CSW does not release any contact lists to anyone except official show vendors. If you are contacted by any vendor, always ask them to send you details in writing and check our official event website to make sure they are show sponsors/vendors. If you are contacted by a non-official vendor, or are unsure, please provide us with the details regarding these calls or emails. We will follow up aggressively with them. This includes outside companies offering hotel rooms, listings in show directories, lists of attendees/contacts, as well as more standard items for your booth such as A/V or internet.

The companies that we have been made aware of are Convention Housing Planners Corp, Expo Housing Services and Exhibitors Housing Management. Please let us know as soon as possible if another company reaches out to you.

CSW is not utilising the services of any housing agent or third party and The Charleston Place will never reach out to attendees to solicit booking rooms.
