Those eligible to attend/register for SEBC include: builders, developers, remodelers, engineers, sub-contractors, architects, interior designers, purchasing agents, sales and marketing professionals, trade partners, exhibitors and any other individuals working in the building industry. Individuals not meeting these eligibility requirements may include: Guest/Keynote speakers, Future Builders of America members, home builder/industry association staff, press, or any other individual who has been personally invited to attend by the SEBC Committee. SEBC is not a public event. The SEBC Expo Hall will display products that may not be safe for small or unattended children. All eligible attendees/registrants must be over the age of 16 to enter the Expo Hall. Children under the age of 16 are not allowed in the Expo Hall.


SEBC does not provide Visa Invitation Letters to foreign attendees. All International registrant payments (outside US and Canada) must be processed onsite.


The SEBC attendee list is freely given to all SEBC exhibitors, as part of the booth package, on three occasions:

  • 30 days prior to the show,
  • 15 days prior to the show, and
  • Immediately following the show.

Unauthorized companies have reportedly contacted SEBC exhibitors to purchase the current year’s SEBC attendee list. This is a scam. These companies may claim to be a partner or work with show management services, implying they work with SEBC. This is an outright false claim.

SEBC only coordinates with four preferred vendors to provide you services during the event. Aside from SEBC show management, the companies listed below may contact you to assist with your booth:

  • The Expo Group
  • Compusystems Registration Services
  • Orange County Convention Center
  • SmartCity
  • LMG
  • Centerplate/Sudexo

SEBC does not sell, share, or distribute you or your company’s contact information to any other third-party companies.

SEBC is working diligently to provide a cease and desist order to these unauthorized companies. Until we are successful in the removal of this scam, we would advise you of the following:

  • Never purchase attendee lists when they are offered in your booth package
  • Forward any false-claim emails to your company’s IT Department, requesting they block the domain name
  • Please contact SEBC show management with any and all concerns

SEBC does not authorize any company to handle your reservations. The official host hotel for the 2024 SEBC is the Rosen Centre Hotel located at 9840 International Drive, Orlando, Florida, 32819.SEBC also has an official partnership with The Hilton Orlando located at 6001 Destination Parkway Orlando, FL 32819. 

For your own protection, please do not make reservations through any unknown housing or travel company. If you receive a call or e-mail from any company that is not our official housing provider, please contact us immediately at kkoch@sebcshow.com.

There are many reported situations of false or deceptive activities by some of these third-party room block marketers. Here are some things to be aware of:

Many of these agencies cannot guarantee a reservation because they do not have contracts for room block with the host hotel Rosen Centre Hotel. They will contact a housing wholesaler to see if anything is available that can be resold to you.

Even legitimate wholesalers cannot knowingly book convention attendees in the convention room block. Only the host hotel (Rosen Centre Hotel) can book within our block of rooms. If the hotel determines a convention attendee has been solicited or contacted by a wholesaler, the room rate may be increased to match or exceed the group rate or the room reservation may be canceled. A rate quote from a room broker is not a guaranteed rate.

Rooms booked through unauthorized housing companies must sometimes be fully prepaid. Rather than a one-night deposit, an unauthorized company may require payment of the full cost for the entire stay for each room booked at the time of booking and include a surcharge per night stayed.

Reservation confirmations and numbers are often not available from these companies until less than a week before the arrival date. Even then, this may not guarantee that a room will be available when you arrive.

Generally, these companies cannot secure a large block of rooms; only one or two at a time. Exhibitors should be particularly wary, since they often need to book a group of rooms for their staff who will be exhibiting during the Convention.

Name changes on room reservations with unofficial wholesalers/room brokers may be difficult to make.

SEBC may not be able to assist attendees who have reserved rooms outside the blocks if problems result from booking through an unauthorized company. SEBC contracts with The Hilton Orlando and The Rosen Centre Hotel for our blocks and includes clauses to protect our attendees should the hotels oversell the rooms or should any issues arise with reservations.

Please note: Some of these unauthorized companies may claim to be a partner of SEBC or even outright falsely claim to be SEBC’s housing company, however, a legitimate company would not call or contact you unless you had initiated contact with them first. If you are contacted by a company that is not the Orange County Convention Center, or if you are ever unsure whether or not a company is legitimate, please immediately e-mail SEBC at kkoch@sebcshow.com.
