    Travel Alert

    To date, we are aware that several companies, not affiliated with RAPS, have advertised hotel and housing services related to the 2016 Regulatory Convergence conference. Some companies have also inaccurately represented themselves as an “authorized housing vendor” for the Regulatory Convergence and contacted attendees and exhibitors of RAPS conference events. These companies are in no way affiliated with RAPS or the 2016 Regulatory Convergence conference. RAPS cannot guarantee the performance or quality of services and reservations booked outside of ConferenceDirect’s official housing block. Bookings for the official housing block at the San Jose Marriott, Hilton San Jose or Fairmont San Jose at the conference rate can be reserved online. Attendees that chose to book with a different agency or directly with a hotel will be subject to the terms and conditions outlined for that reservation. For questions regarding the official hotel block, please contact marie.fredlake@conferencedirect.com.
