**ICMA Attendees and Exhibitors:

Beware of solicitation from unauthorized hotels and housing agencies. Attendees and exhibitors may be subjected to inappropriate solicitation identifying themselves from hotels or third-party housing agencies not affiliated with ICMA.

Specifically, they will offer to make hotel reservations within the Associations room block on your behalf, and some will also mis-represent that they are calling from the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld.

ICMA is NOT utilizing the services of any housing service for the 2021 EXPO.

Reservations for ICMA should be made directly with the hotel, either by phone or via our web reservation system. When calling the hotel, identify yourself as an attendee of the ICMA EXPO to receive the discounted rate. If you provide your credit card information to any of these unauthorized vendors, your card may be charged but you may not have a reservation when you arrive at the hotel.

ICMA EXPO Happening May 15-18, 2022 at Saddlebrook Resort in Tampa, FL

As previously announced, due to the US travel ban that restricts many of our international members from traveling to the US through November 8, as well as corporate travel restrictions that are preventing many from attending the EXPO in November, ICMA made the decision to move the in-person EXPO to 2022.
