MSBO has recently been notified by an associate member that they were targeted by what the industry calls a “room block pirate.” If you are contacted by any company that says they are closely associated with MSBO and want to book your accommodations for the conference, they are not being truthful. If this happens to you, please contact Deneen Hansen at dhansen@msbo.org.  MSBO does not work with outside companies for overnight accommodations.
