Hotel Solicitation Alert

There are reports of Face & Body Midwest/ABS exhibitors and attendees being contacted by companies soliciting "beauty show" hotel bookings.

ConferenceDirect is the only official hotel booking company. No other company has been contracted, and Face & Body/ABS cannot guarantee that any other booking company that may contact you is legitimate. These companies may promise a reservation that does not exist; if booking through these companies, you may be told that you do not have a room upon arrival at the hotel.
