In addition to the specially negotiated rates, attendees who book their rooms through the official GRAPH EXPO hotel reservation office enjoy these benefits:

GASC show management is in receipt of reports from exhibitors and attendees regarding companies (Convention Housing Services, Exhibitors Housing Services, Fair Point, Global Housing, etc.) who have contacted show visitors to "assist" with hotel reservations. At past shows, exhibitors and attendees have used these 3rd party companies only to find out they:

   * Don’t have an actual reservation.

   * Lost a deposit or full payment.

   * Do not receive the rooms they reserved.

   * Arrive at sold out hotels with no reservation.

   * Have no recourse for the payment of rooms.

These 3rd party companies often disguise themselves as GRAPH EXPO employees or claim to represent official show hotels. They also claim better rates, limited rooms and sales methods to secure deposits or full prepayment. If you receive a call or email from any company claiming to represent GRAPH EXPO other than the official GRAPH EXPO Hotel Reservation Office – Expovision – please be aware that this may be a scam. We highly encourage you NOT to make reservations with these companies as they are NOT affiliated with GRAPH EXPO/GASC in any capacity.

The official GRAPH EXPO Hotel Reservation Office – Expovision – is the only Hotel Reservation Office sanctioned and certified by GRAPH EXPO/GASC.

Alert for Visa Waiver Program (VWP) Countries:
Under new rules introduced by the U.S. government, visitors traveling to America from a Visa Waiver Program (VWP) country, are required, as of April 1, 2016, to have an electronic passport “e-Passport.” An e-Passport is an enhanced secure passport with an embedded electronic chip. The chip can be scanned to match the identity of the traveler to the passport. E-Passports are issued by the proper passport issuing authority and must be in compliance with standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). You can readily identify an e-Passport, because it has a unique international symbol on the cover. More about e-Passports is available on the DHS website.
