Alert – Hotel Scams on The Rise

Please be aware of potential scam artists posing as hotel resellers or wholesalers. Reservations made by these unaffiliated organizations may falsely appear to be sanctioned by Blackbaud and purport to have artificially lower rates. In reality, these organizations have no relationship with the hotels and no rooms to sell. Expovision is the Official Hotel Reservation Provider for bbcon. Blackbaud can only guarantee the authenticity of hotel reservations booked through Expovision.
