  • Where do I find hotels for NPE2018?

    EXPOVISION is the only official NPE2018 Hotel Reservation Office. Be wary. Hotel scams are being reported with increased frequency. NPE Show Management and Visit Orlando have received numerous reports from individuals who booked hotel rooms through various third parries only to subsequently learn that no reservations were made and deposits along with full prepayment are not being returned. These third-party brokers falsely imply they are affiliated with NPE to secure deposits and/or full pre-payment for reservations. Any company requiring full prepayment should be viewed with extreme suspicion. The Official NPE2018 Hotel Reservation Office (EXPOVISION) requires only a one-night room plus tax deposit without any contracts to secure hotel room reservations.
