I had trouble finding USA on the drop down menu too, and your time to fill out the form is right there with lots of other folks :) Hope you get a hotel soon.

Thanks for sharing! And thanks to everyone who has entered or updated their data.

The impression I got when I was talking to the OnPeak rep is that CCI and the hotels call the shots as far as how they want to handle the hotel distribution and OnPeak just provides the platform to do it

But what does that even mean, "call the shots?" There is no way CCI micromanages how hotels are distributed. CCI handles making sure the hotels are secured in the block, of course, but beyond that I really doubt they are involved. Why would they hire a large company like OP to handle hotels and then oversee it themselves? Remember, CCI is the ~company that thought it could handle badge sales on its own and then had to go crawling back to Expo Logic at the last minute.
