Exhibitor Housing

Connections Housing is the only housing company authorized by IEEE PES T&D to provide housing services to conference participants. Connections Housing only works with hotels contracted by IEEE and will use the “Housing Seal” below on their correspondences.  Beware of “too good to be true” room offers that require a pay now deposit or do not contain the official “IEEE Housing Seal.” Connections Housing does not require a deposit or prepayment. If you have any questions about housing, need suites or require special accommodations, please reach out to [email protected]

With over 20 hotels to choose from and the lowest rates possible, the IEEE PES T&D Housing Program is THE best deal in town.

Why book with IEEE Housing? (provided by Connections Housing)

  • Free Shuttles 
    You’ll receive complimentary shuttle service to the IEEE PES T&D Conference and Exposition from all hotels that are not within walking distance of the New Orleans Convention Center. If you book outside of the room block, we are unable to account for you using the shuttle.

  • Book with Confidence 
    Hotels are inspected by IEEE and special rates are contracted; we deliver as promised!  No Contract is required for exhibitor or group bookings. 
  • Waitlist 
    If you don’t see your preferred hotel available online, simply call or email the IEEE Housing office and we will put you on the waitlist for that hotel. If that hotel becomes available, we will revise your reservation and send you an updated acknowledgment. 

Hospitality Suites: Only contracted exhibitors in good standing are permitted to reserve function space or hospitality suites at the IEEE PES T&D hotels. Beginning in late 2021, you may contact the hotel directly for meeting/function space or contact Connection Housing for hospitality suites.  

Please note the following important dates and plan your travel/hotel plans accordingly. 

  • Targeted Exhibitor Move-ins begin Thursday, April 21. While exhibitors are not required to be onsite on their target move-in day we do recommend that you consider your target schedule and allow up to 5 hours for empties to be returned at the close of the show before making travel arrangements. 
  • Opening Reception is Monday, April 25 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm (hours subject to change). 
  • Exhibits Open Tuesday, April 26 at 10:00 am (Booths MUST be set by Monday, April 25 at 4:00 pm)

URGENT NOTICE REGARDING HOTEL RESERVATIONS: 

Connections Housing is the only official housing agency for the IEEE PES T&D Conference and Exposition. Please be vigilant if dealing with any companies other than Connections Housing that imply an affiliation with the IEEE PES T&D Conference and Exposition. IEEE has been informed that other companies have aggressively pursued IEEE Conference exhibitors/members or their companies to use their services to book guest rooms at supposedly significant discounts.  Unfortunately, some past attendees have reported problems with their reservations made through these companies.  

For example, past attendees have reported that they:   

  • Lost their significant deposits 
  • Been relocated to another hotel with little or no warning 
  • Have not received reservations at the hotel they had thought were confirmed or at any hotel 

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 show management at [email protected].
