Yes, all bookings and payments will be in my/my company's name.
The way this thread portrays the event may cause you to think there's an ethical problem involved, I can assure you it's not. This trip is being sold as a "package" where the price of accommodation has been set in advance and participants who sign on have accepted the terms.
Accommodation is only a part of what this event will include. The total preparation work required for all aspects of this event will require close to 2 years of full time work. This event is my only source of income for these two years and hence I seek to maximize earnings wherever possible within the already determined budget/spending constraints of the event.
The 300k budget is if I'll only have 100 rooms, interest in the event now however indicates I may easily reach 150 rooms per night which would increase the budget to 450k over the 30 day period.
The hotel credit card options are very interesting. Anyone know if these can be issued to a non-resident alien who owns and operates an American LLC?
