Beware of False Housing Contractors

 

It has been brought to our attention that several housing companies have been soliciting RSNA exhibitors with promises of hotel rooms at discounted prices. 

Please note RSNA does not endorse or work with any of these companies.  We recommend using your RSNA issued User ID and log in to the exhibitor housing and registration site at rsna.org/exhibitors. 

Regarding FairGuide Solicitation

Please be aware of a company called FairGuide.  They are offering a company listing in their directory which is NOT affiliated with RSNA.

 

Should you have any questions about solicitations, please contact the RSNA Technical Exhibits Department.

For more information, check out the IAEE website for exhibitors.
