IMPORTANT NOTICE: In the past ERA has received reports of wholesalers contacting attendees and offering “great deals” on hotels for The Summit. 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 offers from these organizations. Those who opt for alternatives to the ERA negotiated rates may find themselves at risk. ERA reminds its attendees that we have no affiliation with any of these room brokers.
