Please be aware of potential scams and phishing schemes with regard to booking your hotel accommodations. The MPSA does not use an outside vendor to market hotel room availability. Companies unaffiliated with the MPSA may claim that they are authorized to make hotel reservations. These claims are untrue and can result in you experiencing expensive charges, unavailable rooms and cancellation fees. Please access the hotel booking sites or phone numbers using the links below or through official MPSA email communications. If another company contacts you and claims to be affiliated with the MPSA, please email us at conf@mpsanet.org.
