Attendee, Hotel and Exhibitor Alert (click the + to read the full alert)
AN IMPORTANT ALERT FROM WBENC ABOUT EXHIBITOR SERVICE “SCAMS” AND HOUSING “PIRATES” AND “POACHERS”

You may recall that in previous years WBENC made you aware of unauthorized parties contacting National Conference attendees, sponsors and exhibitors about securing hotel rooms for our event. We advised you to be on guard for these “pirates” or “poachers” (meeting industry terminology) who are relentless and might contact you with bogus discounts for hotel rooms or room blocks. Please stay on alert for these inquiries by unauthorized entities with regard to our 2024 conference in Denver, CO as well.

However, we also want to advise you that companies claiming to offer exhibitor services (such as inclusion in an exhibitor directory) have contacted some of our exhibitors from 2022 about the 2023 Conference requesting that they review, verify, and confirm pre-registered data for an Exhibitor Directory for Fairs and Exhibitions.

This request is not associated with WBENC, even though the communication references both WBENC and the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council in Washington, D.C. Do not respond to any communication requesting you verify exhibitor registration or any personal/company information.

WBENC will not solicit information to make hotel reservations or request that you take any other action related to the upcoming 2024 National Conference in Denver unless the message comes directly from WBENC, Map Your Show, BlueWater Technologies, Maritz, or our exhibit services provider, Hargrove, Inc., or appears on the official conference website – www.wbenc.org/conference.

Overflow Hotels

WBENC has identified a number of overflow hotels, as the Gaylord is likely to sell out and to accomodate those who cannot attend the Conference at least Wednesday, March 20, through Friday, March 22. WBENC will be providing a daily shuttle between the overflow hotels and the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Conference Center will operate during the conference business hours. The official shuttle schedule will be published in early 2024.

The overflow hotels listed below have been selected for their proximity, safety and cleanliness. They are not on par with the Gaylord Rockies but do not have the same Wednesday and Thursday night stay-through commitment as the Gaylord.

If you require only one or two nights, or cannot stay at the Gaylord for other reasons, these hotels are great options!

Hotel Comparison Chart
Additional Hotel Block Room Added

We are thrilled to announce that, due to an overwhelming response, our hotel room blocks are almost sold out! This incredible turnout is a testament to the vibrant community and interest surrounding WBENC and the National Conference. We’re deeply grateful for your enthusiasm and support. Your eagerness to participate underscores the strong bonds within our network.

However, we understand the importance of accommodation for a complete and enjoyable experience. Therefore, we’ve been actively working on adding additional hotel options and have added additional rooms where possible, including added a block at the Westin Denver International Airport which will also have a complimentary shuttle service to/from the Gaylord Rockies Resort throughout the conference dates (schedules are TBD).

We are excited to welcome everyone to the 2024 WBENC National Conference!
