Hotel Reservation Scam Information
The IDEA16 Housing Bureau agent is D. VanEvery & Associates.
This is the only official Housing Bureau for IDEA16 and they are processing all hotel reservations for the event. Any communications coming from @dvanevery.com or identified as IDEA16 – Housing Bureau are valid. Please do not give your credit card information or make any reservations with any other housing bureau, housing company, or convention housing company appearing to represent IDEA16, the IDEA16 Housing Bureau, and/or INDA.
Please be vigilant if approached by any company or service other than D. VanEvery & Associates that implies or claims to be an official housing provider of IDEA 2016. We have been made aware of other housing companies or travel agencies that may be aggressively pursuing you, or your company, to book your guest rooms through their company at supposedly significant discounts. Reservations made through these "pirate" agencies or companies will be at your own risk. If you are contacted by one of these pirate companies, please notify IDEA 2016 immediately firstname.lastname@example.org.
