Hotel Warning

ACT Expo does not utilize any third-party booking services. All reservations should be booked directly with the hotel.

Companies such as Convention Housing Authority, Corporate Booking Services, Global Expo Travel, Global Housing Services Corporation, and Exhibition Housing Management have been known to contact attendees offering discounted hotel rates. ACT Expo does not have a relationship with these companies, nor do we recommend using their services. If you receive an email or phone call from any company indicating an affiliation with ACT Expo, we would advise you to not make a hotel reservation through that company. ACT Expo cannot guarantee that reservations made through third parties are valid.

You can protect yourself by following these tips:

  • Check the email address of the individual with whom you are communicating. For ACT Expo, you will only receive emails from @gladstein.org email addresses.
  • Don’t provide personal or payment information using excel files, email, or other non-secure forms of communications.
  • Book hotel rooms directly through the hotel website or phone number.
  • Don’t respond to third parties offering to help book hotel rooms.


Long Beach Convention Center is GBAC certified, which provides the venue staff with training on infectious disease sanitization and outbreak response. Additionally, the Long Beach Convention Center protocols include deep cleaning, use of new EPA approved disinfecting products and enhanced employee training in disinfection techniques and frequency. Venue ventilation systems are regularly checked, including frequent filter changes, 24/7 air exchange circulation, and increased ventilation speeds.
