BEWARE! Unauthorized Housing Brokers

IAF and ILAC does not endorse nor utilize housing brokers and assumes no liability. Fraudulent housing brokers scour the internet looking for conferences and meetings and contact members of the association offering to sell hotel rooms at lower costs. Please note that IAF and ILAC will NOT hire any housing bureaus to contact delegates to offer hotel rooms.  Each delegate is responsible for booking their own bedroom.

Be aware that many times these fraudulent housing brokers do not actually have the rooms they are selling. Often, you get to the hotel and find out that you do not have a room reservation, and in many instances, you have given your credit card number to a stranger to guarantee the room.

We have only one hotel that has been contracted on behalf of IAF and ILAC – the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre Hotel. We recommend you book your room either online by using the links below, or by calling the hotel directly at the phone number below.  If anyone emails or contacts you directly offering to sell you a bedroom, it is a scam – delegates are responsible for booking their own accommodations and no one will contact you on behalf of IAF or ILAC to arrange your accommodation.
