**BEWARE OF MISLEADING ADVERTISING OFFERS THAT CLAIM TO PROVIDE ACCESS TO THE OILCOMM HOTEL BLOCK**

We have been made aware that certain companies are targeting OilComm exhibitors to secure your rooms at the Westchase Marriott through them.  Please note that these groups are in no way affiliated with OilComm Conference and beware of their false claims of having access to hotel rooms in the official OilComm Conference room block. You will receive information directly from OilComm regarding any legitimate housing updates.
