Cancellations & Changes
All cancellations must be made through the PMA Hotel Reservation Office (Expovision) and must be received by September 24, 2021. After this date, the PMA Hotel Reservation Office will continue to process reservations and changes subject to hotel availability. Deposits are non-refundable after September 24, 2021. All cancellations must be received in writing.
All reservations require a per room deposit. Please view the official PMA hotel rate and deposit information to determine the specific amount for each hotel. Reservations cannot be processed without a deposit. Payment may be made by a major credit card or check drawn on a U.S. bank, made payable to the PMA Hotel Reservation Office. American Express, VISA, MasterCard and Discover are acceptable for deposits. Purchase Orders cannot be accepted.
Your card will be charged the appropriate amount immediately. The deposit will appear on the room account at check-in. Credit card charges may not be charged to another card after the initial card has been processed. Note that all reservations are guaranteed for late arrivals. Failure to check in on the scheduled date of arrival will result in the loss of the deposit and cancellation of the room for the remainder of the day.
PMA has adopted the following policies related to hospitality suites used by industry members during our convention.
Hours for major hospitality (12 or more people) are restricted to the following:
- Thursday, Oct. 28 after 8:30 p.m.
- Friday, Oct. 29 after 5:00 p.m.
- Saturday, Oct. 30 after 5:00 p.m.
Non-exhibiting companies may not use a hospitality suite as an exhibit booth. PMA reserves the option of denying future hospitality suites to companies that violate these policies.
Suites are booked upon request through PMA's Hotel Reservation Office and are based on hotel availability.
Please be aware of housing poachers that have been contacting exhibitors about booking hotel rooms for Fresh Summit. We are NOT working with any outside companies to provide housing details, and we apologize for this inconvenience. Please ignore these pirating emails/calls. Expovision is the only company that is officially sanctioned by PMA to book hotel rooms on behalf of its exhibitors and attendees as the PMA Housing Office. Those who opt for alternatives to the PMA negotiated rates may find themselves at risk.
Rooms should be reserved and confirmed only through Expovision to ensure that your reservations are guaranteed and that you receive the discounted group rates negotiated by PMA. PMA and the official Housing Office can only assist guests prior to and onsite that have booked rooms within the official room blocks.
