IMPORTANT NOTICE: APWA has received several reports that wholesalers have been contacting exhibitors offering deals on hotels for the 2012 Sustainability in Public Works Conference. While it is not illegal for a travel firm or booking agent to solicit potential customers, it can be difficult to determine the legitimacy of the offers from these organizations and they sometimes misrepresent themselves as an official APWA housing company. Those who opt for alternatives to the APWA negotiated rates at official Sustainability Conference hotels may find themselves at risk. APWA reminds you that we have no affiliation with any of these room brokers. Rooms in the official APWA Sustainability Conference housing block can only be booked directly with the Omni William Penn Hotel.
