APOS has been notified that there is a company called Convention Housing Services that is calling previous exhibitors and falsely claiming to represent APOS as a hotel/housing company. This company has been taking exhibitor company names and website links off the APOS website. Please be assured that APOS does not share the contact information of its members or supporters with other organizations.


The company is offering to procure a room for you at the Tampa Marriott Waterside at a different rate. Be aware that this company has a Better Business Bureau rating of “F.”

Neither this agency nor any other travel agency is authorized by APOS to contact or make housing arrangements on behalf of conference attendees. If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room at the upcoming Annual Conference or representing themselves as the "APOS Housing Bureau," please get as much information as you can, such as name of the company, the person calling, and their telephone number. Email this information immediately to Allison Ball at
