IEDC does not solicit reservations by phone or email. If you are contacted by any housing bureau, we urge you to report them to IEDC staff. If you receive a call or email from any company offering to make hotel reservations for you over our meeting dates, we urge you not to book with them. These companies are not affiliated with IEDC in any way and therefore are not authorized to make reservations on our behalf. While the rates may sound good, unauthorized companies typically require nonrefundable, pre-paid reservations and often end up moving individuals to other hotels. If you book with an unauthorized company, IEDC cannot protect you if there is a problem with your reservation when you arrive in Washington, DC.
