Scam Warning

Please be aware that TCEA does not contact individuals or companies with special deals on accommodations for the 2020 TCEA Convention & Exposition. We have received notice that unaffiliated companies have contacted attendees and exhibitors offering discounted hotel reservations. These offers are scams. Individuals have reported lost deposits and fraudulent activity in connection with these activities. The only approved reservation link is the one included in your registration confirmation email.
