Housing Scams

Unauthorized housing companies are targeting attendees and exhibitors and scamming attendees by securing payments in advance and tacking on undisclosed service charges.

Do NOT respond to any solicitations from housing companies or travel agencies identifying themselves as being affiliated with AUVSI.

The only authorized Housing Services provider is Experient. Please report any unauthorized housing and travel solicitations to Karissa Bingham at kbingham@auvsi.org.


Hotel Reservations

Experient is the Official Housing Provider for XPONENTIAL 2016. The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International has worked diligently with the hotels in New Orleans to establish room blocks for attendees and exhibitors. Improper solicitation of hotel reservations from any company or housing provider other than Experient is not approved by AUVSI. Reservations made by unaffiliated organizations may appear to be for lower rates, however they may be illegitimate, have unreasonable cancellation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable. Please be aware of, and report any unauthorized solicitation to meetings@auvsi.org.
