Housing Pirate Information

What is a "housing pirate"?

Commonly referred to as "housing pirates" or "housing bandits," these are companies that phone, fax or email attendees and exhibitors, claiming to offer good deals on hotel rooms. They may falsely claim to be affiliated with ARVO. The official ARVO housing bureau is Orchid Events, which uses the services and booking website of Lanyon Passkey. You will not be contacted directly by Orchid Events unless there is a question about your existing reservation.

No ARVO-authorized organization will contact you about ARVO Annual Meeting hotels or housing. Unless you have initiated the communication, please do not provide anyone with your personal information, especially your credit card number. If you provide your credit card information to one of these companies, your card may be charged and there is no guarantee you will have a room upon your arrival in Baltimore.

Reporting fraud

If contacted by someone asking if you need a room at ARVO or representing themselves as the "ARVO Housing Bureau," please:

  1. Get as much information as you can, such as the name of the company, the name of the person callingcompany addressemail address and their telephone number. The more information you are able to collect, the better for us to stop them from contacting others. If possible, please request information such as hotel availability and rates or have them send this information to you via email.
  2. Contact Ashley Engel , assistant director, meetings, with all the details you are able to provide.
