Important Notice: Fraudulent Housing Company

Sham housing companies are approaching IDC New York members and exhibitors with fraudulent offerings of hotel rooms at significant discounts. Lured by highly attractive rates, exhibitors and attendees fall prey to these imposters losing significant deposits, discovering hidden costs, up front charges or being bait and switched to hotel rooms they never booked. Of course, these companies are in no way affiliated with IDC New York, or the official hotel, the Sheraton New York Times Square. They troll the Internet and meeting websites looking for annual events and then gain access to email addresses for direct contact or draw attendees to their websites posing as our sanctioned housing provider. Do not give them your credit card information.

IDC New York is the ONLY official housing company for this event and will not contact you directly to make a reservation. Booking through IDC New York, ensures you will be working with a reputable company, that your credit card information is secure, and that you will benefit from all services provided to conference attendees. If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room reservation for IDC New York, or if they represent themselves as the “IDC New York housing provider,” please get as much information as you can, then notify us immediately at or call toll‐free 1‐877‐307‐5255, ext. 219 or ext. 476.

IDC New York has secured a room block for attendees and exhibitors at the Sheraton New York Times Square hotel. This hotel is providing discounted rates to you based on a guaranteed percentage of attendees staying at this official conference hotel.
When you book your room with IDC New York you will receive the following benefits:

  • Immediate email acknowledgement of your hotel assignment
  • Peace of mind that you have a reservation at the “official” IDC New York hotel at the discounted rate
  • Receive important meeting related materials in your hotel room (door drops)
  • Protection in the event the hotel has oversold guest rooms
  • And much more!

When rooms are booked at hotels NOT within our official hotel block and/or you do not use:

  • IDC New York is exposed to penalties for not fulfilling our room block commitments, by avoiding hotel penalties, IDC New York is able to keep show costs down
  • IDC New York risks our ability to rebook preferred hotels and receive discounted rates
  • IDC New York risks losing qualification for the amount of space needed at the convention center
  • IDC New York is unable to assist in the event a reservation can’t be located in the hotel’s system
  • IDC New York is unable to help protect reservations in the event the hotel “oversells” its room inventory

Please support IDC New York by staying at the official hotel and booking only through the IDC New York website. We think you will find the increased networking opportunities and quality hotel services/amenities to be worth it!
