Please be vigilant if approached by any other company or service that implies or claims to be an official housing provider of the International Elastomer Conference. They are NOT official housing providers for IEC.

We have been made aware of other housing companies or travel agencies that may be aggressively pursuing you, or your company, to book your guest rooms through their company at supposedly significant discounts. Reservations made through an agency other than the Rubber Division, ACS housing will be at your own risk.

Such companies to avoid, as they are not affiliated with the International Elastomer Conference, include:
(These are just some that we are aware of, but there are many more.)

- Otrix Hotel Booking
- Book My Rooms, LLC
- Convention Housing Management
- Convention Expo Travel
- Elite Corporate Planners
- Expo Housing
- Global Housing Management (GHM Travel)
- HDMC Group
- IEP Group
- International Events
- Le Company LLC
- National Travel Associates
- TradeShow Housing
- WholesaleTravelPlanners


It is against Rubber Division, ACS policy to provide our attendee information to anyone. If you are solicited via email or phone to buy a list of International Elastomer Conference attendees, IT IS NOT LEGITIMATE. There are many different companies and people out there who claim to have a list of our attendees and they are very aggressive in their tactics to sell that list to others in our industry. Their claims are absolutely false and Rubber Division, ACS strongly advises you to never make a purchase of a list supposedly of IEC attendees. We also highly recommend you not even reply to an email claiming to be able to sell you such a list. If you do, you just confirmed that you are a valid email address and work in our industry...and you will most likely get added to the non-legitimate lists they sell. 


What is suitcasing?
Suitcasing is a business practice by which companies gain access to an event by obtaining event credentials (attendee badge, expo-only badge etc.) and then solicit business in the aisles or other public spaces used for the conference. This practice works counter to the business interests of legitimate IEC exhibitors.

Rubber Division, ACS and IEC has a zero-tolerance policy regarding suitcasing.

Any attendee observed to be inappropriately soliciting business in the aisles or other public spaces, or in any other company’s booth will be asked to leave.

We recognize that suitcasing may also take the form of commercial activity conducted from a hotel guest room or hospitality suite, a restaurant, or other place in conjunction with our event. For this reason, Rubber Division, ACS must be informed of any hospitality suites and expressed consent for such meetings must be given by us prior to the event.
