Beware of Housing Scams

Sham housing companies are approaching ESX 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 Alarm Industry Expo, LLC or ESX 2015, or the official hotels in Baltimore. They troll the internet and association Web sites looking for annual events and then gain access to email addresses for direct contact or draw attendees to their Web sites posing as your association’s sanctioned housing provider. Do not give them your credit card information.

Orchid Event Solutions is the ONLY official housing company for this event and will not contact you directly to make a reservation.  Booking through ESX’s official housing provider, Orchid Event Solutions 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 at the official hotels including shuttle transportation to the convention center. 

If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room reservation for ESX 2015, or if they represent themselves as the “ESX housing provider,” please get as much information as you can, then contact Orchid Event Solutions at or call toll-free 1-800-572-9712.
