HOTEL SCAM ALERT
I am writing to warn you to be on the lookout for scams related to booking hotels for 2015 CENTS Marketplace and University in Columbus, January 7-9.
Like many past attendees and exhibitors, we have received an email from CBS International that offer other hotels that the Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association has no affiliation with.
ONLA has the lowest negotiated rates at the major properties in our hotel block downtown, and there is still availability at our official hotels.
Don’t be fooled by emails or calls claiming to be from official housing company for 2015 CENTS Marketplace & University. ONLA currently does not work with a third party agency.
Booking your room through our contracted hotels guarantees you the lowest rates.
To see available hotels and make your reservation for 2015, visit http://centsmarketplace.com/hotel-travel/hotels/
Booking rooms through anyone other than our contracted hotels may cause you to lose your deposit or discover that your hotel has no record of your reservation when you arrive in Columbus. Reservations made through any agency other than individual hotels will be at your own risk.
Please help us keep track of housing scams so that ONLA can take legal action. If you have been contacted by a pirating or fraudulent agency, report the scam to 614-899-1195 or email@example.com.
I look forward to seeing you in Columbus in January!
