SECO has contracted discounted rates with our headquarters hotels, the New Orleans Marriott and the Sheraton New Orleans, and at hotels throughout the city to offer you luxury accommodations at the best possible rates.

Reservations must be made through our official housing company, EventSphere, by February 4 in order to reserve rooms at the discounted rates. Hotels sell out quickly, so we recommend booking your room today. If you have any questions or need assistance with your hotel needs, contact EventSphere at (866) 393-0555 or

Why Book Through SECO?

Making your hotel reservations through SECO allows us to keep your registration costs low and negotiate competitive rates for future meetings. SECO also receives a small commission from the designated hotels and monies received are directed toward expenses and services like free shuttle bus service, helping to keep our registration fees among the lowest in the nation. When making your reservations, please beware of unauthorized companies that may claim to be representing SECO. These unauthorized companies typically require non-refundable, pre-paid reservations, offer fake rates, move individuals to other hotels upon arrival or even take your money without booking a room.

Please beware of vendors who have been known to contact attendees and exhibitors about booking hotel rooms! They may claim to represent SECO 2019 but we are NOT working with any housing companies except for EventSphere.

All other unsolicited calls/emails are from “poachers”, companies that make false claims and may take your money without providing you with a reservation. We recommend that you get their information and notify someone at SECO if you are approached by any company other than EventSphere regarding housing.

Hotel Scam Warning

Large conferences and events often become targets for companies seeking to take advantage of the attendees. Some of our attendees and exhibitors have recently reported to us that they’ve been contacted by third party companies for a number of reasons including hotel reservations and offering to sell our attendee list to them.

These third-party “pirate” companies create websites and email solicitations offering special discounted hotel rooms for other associations’ meetings. They use web domain names and email addresses that look similar to the official versions for the conference. Often, these discounted rooms do not exist. The primary objective of this solicitation is to obtain your credit card information.

EventSphere is our exclusive housing provider. SECO has no affiliation with any other company and cannot guarantee rates or accommodations made through these companies. All correspondence received from EventSphere regarding housing for the SECO 2019 Congress will come from EventSphere, the Official Housing Partner of SECO 2019
