Planning Your Arrival Open

  • This is your first time at Exchange 
  • You’re an international attendee 
  • You added the Get-Acquainted Party to your registration as an upgrade (Saturday at 7 p.m.)

For Expo-Only attendees, we recommend arriving the day before you plan to attend the conference so you’re able to get the most out of your day at Exchange. 

Housing Scam Advisory Open

Please be aware that GEAPS does not contact individuals and/or companies with special deals on accommodations for Exchange. 

We have received complaints that unaffiliated companies have contacted attendees and exhibitors offering discounted hotel reservations. These offers are scams; individuals have reported lost deposits and fraudulent activity in connection with these activities. 

The only legitimate emails for Exchange lodging will come directly from GEAPS. 

Housing Cut-Off Date Open

The Exchange 2023 room block closes on February 3, 2023,

Room reservations that are made before the cut-off date will be confirmed at the above group rates. After the cut-off date, room availability will be based on hotel availability and may not be available at the discounted rate. 

Please be sure to make your reservations prior to the cut-off date to guarantee the group rate. 

GEAPS Cancellation Policy Open

Please be aware that our room block cancellation deadline is January 19, 2023. 

Any cancellations made after this date will incur a $200 fee per reservation. If you need to cancel or modify your reservation please do so as early as possible. You will be able to modify or change your reservation through our housing link. 

After the cut-off date you will need to contact the hotels directly to modify or cancel your reservation. 

This cancellation policy is in place to assist GEAPS in managing the housing block, and minimize the risk of paying for unused rooms. Furthermore, our hotel block does sell out of rooms, so cancelling or modifying your reservation early can help ensure all who want a hotel room are able to book one in our block. 

Our contracted hotels also have their own individual cancellation policies. Please keep these in mind when planning your trip.
