Unauthorized Housing Companies Contacting Exhibitors & Attendees
It has recently come to our attention that several groups have been contacting our attendees and exhibitors to assist with hotel reservations in San Antonio for the upcoming 2014 ACTFL Annual Convention and World Languages Expo. Passkey/San Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau is the only official housing vendor for ACTFL and they can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (210) 207-6734. We have contracted hotel blocks with 7 properties within walking distance of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
