    **Important notice regarding hotel reservations**
    We have been alerted by some of our exhibitors that a company is telephoning exhibitors claiming they work for GHI in order for you to make hotel reservations at the Bella Centre through them.  This company is called Exhibitors Housing Services and is not affiliated in anyway with GHI and it is a scam.
    We will be sending the official booking link for the Bella Centre out shortly via email to enable you to book your hotel room.  Please note GHI or the Bella Centre will NOT call you to book your room.
    These scam companies offer rooms at a discounted rate and there is no guarantee that a booking has actually been made or what they are doing with your credit card details.
    If you have received a call from this company please contact so that we can take the necessary action.
