Housing Alert

At the U.S. HYDRO 2015 conference, it came to our attention that a company named Exhibition Housing Management (EHM) had been contacting exhibitors and was offering a “discounted” hotel rate to exhibitors. This company is not affiliated with U.S. HYDRO 2017 or the Moody Gardens Hotel.

The only method for reserving the conference rate is by calling the Moody Garden’s reservation line, or online using the hotel’s event website listed above.

Neither THSOA nor the Moody Gardens Hotel will contact you to make a reservation. Any company claiming to be affiliated with us or the Moody Gardens is fraudulent.

We do not know how this company is collecting your information, but many conferences and conference attendees have reported these same actions from EHM and similar companies. This is a sophisticated and well organized fraud. Be assured that THSOA is committed to protecting the privacy of our exhibitors and attendees.

If you have questions, please contact Melissa Wood at
