Hotel & Travel
NOTE: Various telemarketing firms with names like Corporate Booking Services Company (CBS International),Global Housing Services Corporation, National Travel Associates and others have contacted PDA attendees in the past to solicit hotel reservations for the PDA Annual Conference.
None of these companies are affiliated with PDA or the Doubletree by Hilton New Orleans. They are not authorized to book rooms in the name of PDA. There is great risk in booking hotel rooms at the Doubletree or outside of the PDA website link. At some recent shows in New Orleans, attendees were contacted, made reservations and put deposits down through a similar agency. The agency went out of business prior to the show and all people with reservations made through the third party lost their deposits. In addition, they had no room reservations for that show.
The only secure method of reserving PDA rooms at the negotiated rate is through the PDA link.
