Hotel Information

It has been brought to our attention that there are companies contacting our exhibitors & sponsors, claiming to represent the Air Barrier Association of American (ABAA) and offering “assistance” with registration, hotel bookings and exhibit services.

The reported companies that are aggressively cold-calling and spamming companies whose names have appeared on pages are Global Travel Partners and GES – Global Experience Specialists.

These companies or any others similar are NOT AFFILIATED WITH ABAA and are not authorized to use our name or trademark in any solicitations.Please be aware of the following known scams which we’ve heard about over the last week:

  • No one should contact you directly to book your hotel room or offer you a “special discounted conference rate” or “can save you $30.00 off your room rate.” If you receive one of these calls or emails, it is a scam. They are not affiliating with ABAA.
  • If you receive an email from documents about reservations from anyone but ABAA, Sheraton Norfolk Waterside, or wherever you booked your accommodations please ignore this message. This company is not affiliated with ABAA.


Thank you to all who have alerted us to this matter. Should you have any questions regarding our Annual Conference please contact us at 866-956-5888.

Excerpt from the Hotel web site:

Downtown Norfolk, VA’s Only Waterfront Hotel

As the only hotel in Norfolk located directly on the water, Sheraton Norfolk Waterside Hotel showcases striking, uninterrupted views of the Elizabeth River. Step out of our waterfront hotel and into the heart of downtown Norfolk; enjoy diverse shopping, dining and entertainment on Granby Street and year-round concerts and festivals at the Town Point Park waterfront esplanade. A short drive brings you to the Naval Station Norfolk or the sunny shores of Virginia Beach.
