From booking a hotel to planning a memorable visit, the IA makes it easy to attend or exhibit at the Irrigation Show.

Housing is now open!

The Irrigation Association has partnered with Connections Housing to offer discounted hotel rates for the 2018 Irrigation Show and Education Conference. All hotels are conveniently located near the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center. Book your room through Connections Housing, the official show housing company, for access to exclusive discounts, complimentary Wi-Fi and free/discounted fitness center access at all show hotels.

Hotel Fraud Alert

Many past attendees and exhibitors have received emails or calls that pretend to be from official housing companies for the 2018 Irrigation Show. These scammers often claim that show hotels are sold out or that they offer lower room rates than those available through the Irrigation Association. This is not true. If you are contacted by any housing company other than Connections Housing, then that company is a scammer. Do not do business with them. Here are a few of these companies that have been brought to our attention in the past:

  • CBS International
  • CMI Event Travel
  • Convention Housing Bureau
  • Conventioneers
  • Event Travel Planners
  • Events Plus Corporate
  • Exhibitors Housing
  • Expo Housing Services
  • Global Housing Services 
  • Pro Housing LLC 
  • Trade Show Planners
  • Wholesale Room Rates

Connections Housing is the only official housing vendor for the show. Booking rooms through anyone but IA’s official housing vendor may cause you to lose your deposit or discover that your hotel has no record of your reservation when you arrive in Long Beach. Reservations through any agency other than Connections Housing are made at your own risk.

The Irrigation Association has negotiated the lowest group rate, a portion of which goes to offset conference-related costs.
