skull and crossbonesPlease beware of housing, exhibitor services and/or audio-visual company poachers that may contact exhibitors regarding hotel rooms, exposition services or audio-visual equipment for your booth at the 2019 TRA Marketplace. We are NOT working with any companies that would contact you directly to provide housing, services or audio-visual rentals. Please ignore these pirating calls and/or emails even if they appear to be legitimate (by stealing and using the TRA logo).

Entering into financial agreements with non-endorsed companies can have costly consequences for you such as:

  • Credit Card Fraud. Do not give your credit card information to anyone who calls or emails you. They could be selling you a fictitious hotel reservation claiming that it is at a lower rate than the TRA group block, steal your credit card information and then you show up in San Antonio with no guest room reserved!
  • Theft. Our expo services company, GES, will NOT be calling you and asking for your order for carpeting, furniture, electricity, etc. These pirate companies will take your credit card information and then you will show up at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center with nothing in your booth! This same theory applies to audio-visual companies - our approved vendors will NOT be contacting you so please beware. 

Our official hotel information is available on Hotel Info & Discounts page. Official services can be found on the Exhibitor Resources page. 

A few of these pirating companies are listed below. Please report any unauthorized solicitations to

  • Global Travel Partners
  • Convention Housing Authority
  • Global Housing Services Corporation
