Please be aware that TCEA does not contact individuals and/or companies with special deals on accommodations for the TCEA 2016 Convention & Exposition. We have received complaints that unaffiliated companies have contacted attendees and exhibitors offering discounted hotel reservations. These offers are scams; individuals have reported lost deposits and fraudulent activity in connection with these activities. The only approved reservation link is the one included in your attendee confirmation.
