Hotel Poacher/Pirate Warning:  We have been notified that PIUG has been a target of hotel poachers/pirates, whereby representatives of a hotel room booking agency have been contacting PIUG exhibitors and sponsors identifying themselves as part of PIUG and offering to book rooms.  These companies are not in any way affiliated with PIUG and are not authorized to use PIUG’s name or trademarks.  PIUG does not use any third party company to handle its hotel bookings. PIUG strongly recommends that you do not book your hotel reservations with the hotel poachers/pirates and cannot guarantee that, if you book with the hotel poachers/pirates, the reservation is valid.  All hotel reservations should be booked either through PIUG’s online link to the hotel or by calling the Hilton Vancouver Washington directly.

If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room for the PIUG annual meeting who is not a representative of PIUG, please obtain as much information as you can and contact Ken Koubek with the information, so we may take appropriate action.
