Hotel Scammer Information

It has come to our attention that there are scammers targeting sponsors and attendees of HR Florida’s annual conference. These individuals/companies may reach out to you with offers including cheaper hotel rates. Please know these offers are not affiliated with or endorsed by HR Florida or our host hotel and have often times turned out to be complete scams, meaning the rooms paid for are not actually reserved. All official communications regarding HR Florida’s annual conference will come from Terri Greene at terri.greene@hrflorida.org or registrar@hrflorida.org. If you receive a suspicious email, do not respond; contact us directly at one of these email addresses. If you receive a suspicious phone call, hang up and call us directly at (407) 405-5260. Please know that HR Florida is doing everything possible to deal with these scammers in an effort to make your annual conference experience as enjoyable as possible
