Frequently Asked Questions
Question

I was contacted by a housing provider that offered to assist with making my RLC hotel reservation. What should I do?

Answer

Restaurant Leadership Conference (RLC) and Winsight, LLC do not utilize the services of any housing agent or third party to solicit booking rooms for attendees. Additionally, the JW Marriott Desert Ridge will never reach out to attendees to book rooms for the event. Please only make your hotel reservations using the link provided in your registration confirmation email.

Be vigilant if approached by any company representing themselves as the housing provider for Restaurant Leadership Conference since entering into financial agreements with non-endorsed companies can have costly consequences. 

We have been made aware that the following companies have reached out to attendees: Convention Housing Planners Corp, Expo Housing Services and Exhibitors Housing Management. Please let us know if any of these or another company reaches out to you.
