URGENT NOTICE REGARDING HOTEL RESERVATIONS:

Be sure to make your reservations with our official housing service, Connections Housing.  Access the website’s 24/7 online reservation system. Be vigilant if dealing with any companies other than Connections Housing that may imply or claim an affiliation with the IEEE PES T&D Conference and Exposition.  Connections Housing is the only official booking agency for the IEEE PES T&D Conference and Exposition.  IEEE has been informed that other companies have aggressively pursued IEEE Conference exhibitors/members or their companies to use their services to book guest rooms at supposedly significant discounts.  Unfortunately, some past attendees and exhibitors have reported problems with their reservations made through these companies.

For example, past attendees have reported that they:  

  • Lost their significant deposits,

  • Been relocated with little or no warning,

  • Have not received reservations at the hotel they had thought were confirmed or at any hotel.

  • We understand that this has caused great hardships and significant financial loss to these companies and individuals. Reservations made through an agency other than Connections Housing will be at your own risk.  If you are contacted by another company trying to sell discounted hotel rooms, please notify Show Management at (470) 737-1919 or ieeehousing@connectionshousing.com.
