BEWARE of Travel Scams

Fleet Technology Expo is committed to providing you with the best travel deals around. Fleet Technology Expo Show Management is the official travel provider for the show and does not work with an outside third-party vendor.  Any offers from other hotels and/or travel agencies are not endorsed by Fleet Technology Expo or Bobit Business Media. Don’t be fooled by offers from other parties using the Fleet Technology Expo name – they are NOT affiliated with Fleet Technology Expo or Bobit Business Media.

Help Us Help You in 2016: Book in the Fleet Technology Expo Hotel Block

Did you know that by booking your room at the Fleet Technology Expo Headquarters Hotel, you are supporting the show?

Here are some important reasons why you should book inside the Fleet Technology Expo hotel block:

  1. Booking in the block helps the fiscal livelihood of the show. Fleet Technology Expo is bound by contract to fulfill a specific block of rooms in order to offer you a special rate. If we don’t meet the quota, we are financially responsible for any unused rooms. That may eventually result in increased registration or exhibit booth fees.
  2. Be where all the action is! With other attendees staying at the host hotel you can network and talk shop anytime, anywhere.
