Housing and Travel

APHA 2018 Housing will open June 4.

Housing Scams

APHA has been made aware of companies contacting a number of exhibitors and attendees to offer hotel reservation services. Spargo, Inc. is the official housing vendor for the APHA Annual Meeting and does not solicit. If you are contacted by a housing vendor that uses APHA's name or the name of APHA's 2018 Annual Meeting & Expo, we urge you to exercise extreme caution and to contact us with their information. APHA cannot guarantee that the reservation will be made or if the hotels in our official block will honor these reservations.
