HOW Design Live has designated EventSphere as the only official housing provider for the 2019 HOW Design Live.

Again, EventSphere is the only official housing provider for the 2019 HOW Design Live.

Potential Problems When Booking with Other Providers

  • The hotels may not have been pre-qualified and viewed by HOW Design Live staff
  • Many hotels require hefty deposits and full pre-payment along with steep change and cancelation fees

Unaffiliated Housing Companies NOT Endorsed by HOW Design Live Include:
