Reservation(s) must be guaranteed with a credit card or check in the amount equaling a deposit for one night’s room and tax for each room reserved. Tax is currently 17.4% and is subject to change.

Important Dates

  • August 1, 2018: Rooming lists are due. After this date, rooms without individual names are subject to cancellation.
  • August 13, 2018: IMTS Housing Cancellation Deadline. Any reservations cancelled after this date will be charged a penalty equal to the amount of the first night’s room and tax per room cancelled after the deadline. Connections Housing, the official IMTS housing agency, will collect this amount on behalf of IMTS.


IMTS has designated Connections Housing as the only housing provider for the event. There are fraudulent companies and organizations that will try to present themselves as official partners of IMTS 2018 and offer you a potential room that might not be guaranteed, available or will take your deposit. Should you be contacted by someone other than Connections Housing, please let us know by emailing Mark Kennedy and do not book your guest room with them.

Be sure to make your reservations with IMTS’ official housing agency, Connections Housing. Be vigilant if dealing with any companies other than Connections Housing that may imply or claim an affiliation with IMTS. Connections Housing is the only official booking agency for IMTS.

IMTS has been informed that other companies have aggressively pursued IMTS members or their companies to use their services to book guest rooms at supposedly significant discounts. Unfortunately, some past attendees and exhibitors have reported problems with their reservations made through these companies. For example, past attendees have reported that they: lost their significant deposits; been relocated with little or no warning; have not received reservations at the hotel they had thought were confirmed; or were not actually confirmed at any hotel at all.

We understand that this has caused great hardships 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 company trying to sell discounted hotel rooms, please notify IMTS@connectionshousing.com.
