Buyer Beware

Connections Housing is the only housing provider for this event. There are fraudulent companies and organizations that will try to present themselves as official partners of HANNOVER MESSE USA and/or IMTS 2020 and offer you a potential room that might not be guaranteed, available or will take your deposit.

Important Dates

August 3, 2020: Rooming lists are due. After this date, rooms without individual names are subject to cancellation.

August 13, 2020: 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 housing agency, will collect this amount.
