Housing Alert for The National

Each year, APMA receives reports from members and exhibitors that companies claiming to be affiliated with The National or the host hotel have contacted them with offers to book discounted rooms. This year is no exception. We have been advised that several unaffiliated companies have again been aggressively pursuing attendees of the APMA 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting in Washington, DC, with discounted hotel rooms through their company.

Please be advised that the exclusive online booking agency for The National this year is Passkey International, Inc. Rooms may also be booked directly through the hotel by calling 877-382-7299; mention APMA for negotiated rates. You may also book online using the information below:

Unfortunately, some past attendees that have used unaffiliated third-party agencies have reported the following problems:

  • Relocations with little or no warning
  • Loss of significant deposits
  • Not being booked (or provided) the guest room(s) they thought they had booked
  • Not being booked at the hotel they thought they had booked

Of course, this causes significant hardship and inconvenience to the individuals and their companies. Reservations made other than through Passkey International will be at your own risk. If you have been contacted by another company purporting to represent the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, Passkey International, or APMA please report them at 301-581-9200 or thenational@apma.org.

We look forward to seeing you at The National!
