Note: There are companies that are claiming to offer registration and housing services for CSWE’s 2024 APM, which are not affiliated with CSWE and do not offer any services on our participants behalf. The term housing pirates is used as they fraudulently gain access to credit card information and defraud unsuspecting victims. Participants may receive emails or phone calls from these companies urging you to book hotel rooms or register. Registration and housing should only be accessed through links accessed from Registration and Housing | CSWE and reserved through CSWE’s official housing provider: Convention Management Resources (CMR).
