Beware of Housing Scams

Housing Scams — Spargo, Inc. is the official housing vendor for the APHA Annual Meeting and does not solicit. These companies are tech-savvy and often make fake reservations and websites that look real. If you book through these sites you run the risk of arriving in San Diego and not having a hotel room. Never book from an email that does not come from an email address.

Attendee Lists — 2017 Lists for Purchase
If you are solicited to buy APHA attendee lists, do not buy. The only people who have access to the APHA attendee list are APHA, our registration company (Spargo, Inc.) and Exhibitor Invites, the vendor who partners with APHA to send out emails to those attendees who do not opt out of this communication. Do not provide them with personal or financial information.

We urge you to exercise extreme caution and to contact us with information for these companies.
