80th Annual Conference & Exhibit Show Attendee Information

498 April 17 – 19, 2018
Cobo Center, Detroit

Conference Registration is Open:

Room Block Pirates

MSBO has recently been notified by an associate member that they were targeted by what the industry calls a “room block pirate.” Yes, this is a real issue.

MSBO does not work with outside companies for overnight accommodations. We recommend only booking overnight rooms directly with hotels using our room blocks so you can get the preferred rates.

If you are contacted by someone claiming to be with MSBO or any company that says they are closely associated with MSBO and want to book your accommodations for the 2018 MSBO Annual Conference, they are not being truthful. If you have any questions or this happens to you, please contact Deneen Hansen at 517.327.2585 or email dhansen@msbo.org.
