Please be vigilant if contacted by any company or service that implies or claims to be an official housing provider for the SAME Small Business Conference. SAME's official housing company is Connections Housing. The only way to book your rooms for the 2016 Small Business Conference is through our housing site or by calling 404-842-0000 or 800-262-9974. We have been made aware of other housing companies or travel agencies that may be pursuing you, or your company, to book your guest rooms through their company at supposedly significant discounts. If you are contacted by one of these pirate companies, please notify SAME immediately.

Housing “Pirates” and “Poachers”

SAME works with Connections Housing to secure sleeping rooms at hotels for our conferences (commonly referred to as room blocks), we research the properties to make certain that our attendees will be adequately accommodated. The room block is established to ensure that rooms meet our standards and are offered at a discounted price. 

Room poaching is a practice carried out by third-party companies that act as travel agencies, wholesalers, or destination management companies to solicit registrants for room reservations. Poachers often represent themselves as being affiliated with SAME. The poacher might inform registrants that the hotel room block is “sold out,” and that if you do not book with them immediately, you may not get a room. Additional deceptive tactics may include distributing forms or promotional materials that appear to be issued by SAME.

  • Room poachers make it more difficult for us to meet our room block commitments, and expose us to penaltiees and increased room rates for our events. 
  • Room poachers often don’t deliver on promises to customers. When customers arrive, reservations are non-existent or the hotels are not conveniently located. Sometimes the rooms have been cancelled and hefty cancellation fees have been placed on the customer’s credit card. 

How You Can Help:
Do not be misled! If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room for the SBC, please get as much information as you can and pass it on to SAME.
