Avoid “Housing Pirates”

We have been informed that registrants have been contacted by fax, email or phone with offers for cut rate housing. The intent is to convince you that the offer is made on behalf of VPPPA, or that the soliciting company is a viable alternative to going to the hotel directly. This is NOT TRUE and generally leaves the attendee at a considerable disadvantage. Only use the phone numbers and links provided above to make your hotel reservations with the VPPPA Symposium hotels.
