Warning: Beware of Housing Poachers

There is a possibility that you may receive a fax, e-mail transmission or phone call that offers you cut rate housing for the CGA Strategic Conference. The intent is to convince you that the offer is made on behalf of the California Grocers Association or the CGA Strategic Conference. This is not the case. Many associations and show organizers have become the unwitting victims of these room block poachers who secure attendee company names to solicit business. DON’T BE MISLED. These companies are NOT representatives of the California Grocers Association.
