"BUYER BEWARE”
Connections Housing is the only approved, official housing vendor for the Smoky Mountain Gift Show. We understand that unauthorized housing companies may be contacting you advertising cheaper rates and may imply or claim an affiliation with the gift fair or Urban Expositions. Unfortunately, some past attendees and exhibitors have fallen prey to these companies that engage in false or deceptive practices and in some cases completely scammed the participant. We have received reports from participants that have booked with these companies and they have either: lost significant deposits, been relocated with little or no warning, have not had the guest rooms they thought they had booked, or have not received reservations at the hotel they had thought were confirmed. This has caused great hardship and significant financial loss to these companies and individuals. Reservations made through an agency other than Connections Housing will be at your own risk. If you are contacted by another housing service trying to sell hotel rooms, please notify Connections Housing by calling the phone number below before providing any company or personal, credit card or banking information to an unauthorized company (s).

Still have questions? Please call Connections Housing at 1-800-262-9974 or 404-842-0000 (International)

See you in Gatlinburg!
