It has come to our attention that a company called Event Travel Planners is inaccurately representing itself as the Great Lakes EXPO "housing vendor" and is contacting Great Lakes EXPO exhibitors and attendees, soliciting business. Specifically, they will offer to make hotel reservations for the Great Lakes EXPO on your behalf.

The Great Lakes EXPO is NOT utilizing the services of ANY housing service. Please DO NOT make your hotel reservations through Event Travel Planners or any other company offering to make you a hotel reservation. If you provide your credit card information to any of these unauthorized vendors, your card may be charged but you may not have a reservation when you arrive in Grand Rapids.

If you have any questions about the Great Lakes EXPO hotel block, please contact Brandy McCallum, Convention Services Manager at Experience Grand Rapids, at 616-233-3534 or email
