Phoenix is getting hit so hard by the "Papers Please Law" that the hotels have started using unsolicited emails asking folks to plan events there.
It is so sad that stupid, racist politics are impacting real businesses in such a bad way...
Actual text of the email I just received:
I am with the Abcdefg Ijklmno Phoenix Airport Hotel. I want to see if you ever schedule any meetings or events in the Phoenix area?
We are conveniently located less than a mile from Sky Harbor International Airport (with complimentary Airport shuttle). We are the only hotel with a Xxxxxxx Xxxxxxx at our front door. You will experience the ease and convenience of the Xxxxxxx Xxxxxxx which connects you to professional and collegiate sporting venues, as well as great dining and shopping. Just minutes from downtown Phoenix, the Convention Center and Tempe, home of Arizona State University. Other nearby attractions include spring training venues for the Los Angeles Angels, Oakland A’s and San Francisco Giants.
I may be reached directly at email@example.com or 602-999-9999. Please visit our website at www.hoteldomain.com or feel free to call me if I can be of any further assistance.
Make it a great day!
