Important Housing Information:
There is only one official housing company partner for TESOL and that company is Showcare Event Solutions. Any other company claiming to be working with or partnering with TESOL on the convention in Portland to assist with housing is misrepresenting themselves.

For example, if Convention Housing Services were to contact you and offer you rooms, they are NOT affiliated with TESOL. Should you choose to work with a company other than Showcare Event Solutions, TESOL is not responsible for any fraud that may occur. TESOL also will not have the ability to assist you with any issues that may arise concerning housing for you and your staff. To register for the TESOL convention and to reserve your hotel rooms, please visit the TESOL Convention registration website.

Please be advised that if another housing company other than Showcare Event Solutions should contact you that:
1. These companies are not associated with TESOL or the TESOL convention.
2. They are not selling hotels in the official housing block.
3. TESOL does not recommend you give your credit card or personal information to any organization randomly calling you or sending e-mail solicitations. TESOL is concerned you will be led to believe these firms are associated with TESOL, and they are not.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact either Lisa Dyson, TESOL Director of Conference Services at +1 703.518.2515 or Catherine Curtis, TESOL Exhibits & Conference Services Manager at +1 703.518.2538.

IMPORTANT: About Tear Down
The English Language Expo is open until 2:00 pm on Saturday 29 March. As an exhibitor, you agree not to tear down your booth prior to that time. Attendees expect to see a complete exhibit hall at all times. Any exhibitor who chooses to dismantle outside of the dedicated teardown times will, at a minimum, lose all accumulated priority points and will have to sign up after the priority point sign-up process is completed for the following year. Please plan your travel and staffing accordingly.

*The contracting Exhibitor will forfeit any space not occupied by 8 pm on 26 March 2014, and such space may be sold or reassigned by TESOL without refund of rental fees. Booths cannot be assembled until full payment is received.
