Hotel Reservation Alert for HIMSS12 Exhibitors
It has come to our attention that several unaffiliated wholesale hotel/travel groups out of Las Vegas have been soliciting HIMSS participants and offering hotel accommodations for 2012 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas. Unofficial companies may be offering discounted or wholesale hotel pricing. Neither HIMSS nor onPeak can verify the authenticity of such companies or their representations, and will not be able to provide a resolution to issues related to such reservations. Feel free to contact onPeak at 877-517-3038/312-527-7300 9:00am – 7:00pm EST or via email at if you have any questions about the booking of your hotel reservation.
