Connections Housing is the official housing bureau for RISKWORLD. In order to receive discounted room rates, reservations must be made through the housing bureau and not directly with hotels. Please be advised that RIMS has only one contracted and exclusive housing provider and that is Connections Housing.

IMPORTANT SCAM ALERT! Please be aware that some convention housing and expo travel agencies are fraudulently representing themselves as our “housing vendor” and contacting individuals to solicit business. Specifically, they will offer to make hotel reservations within RIMS’ block on your behalf, or even offer you a discount from RIMS.

RIMS is not utilizing the services of any housing service for RISKWORLD, other than the RIMS Official Housing Bureau, Connections Housing. Hotel reservations for RIMS should be made directly with the RIMS Official Housing Bureau, either by phone or via our web reservation link. The official conference hotels with guaranteed rates are listed on this website. If you provide your credit card information to any of these unauthorized vendors, your card may be charged but you may not have a reservation when you arrive in San Diego.

Other housing providers may try to contact you and offer you a potential room that might not be guaranteed or available. Also, they may require reservations be fully prepaid, which are non-refundable and may be subject to steep cancellation and change fees.

If you are registered and need to book your hotel room at a later date, please refer back to your Registration Confirmation email or contact Connections Housing, Monday through Friday, 9:00 am ET – 7:00 pm ET at:
