It is possible you may be contacted by a company claiming to be the official housing bureau for this conference. These unscrupulous companies contact exhibitors and attendees, telling them the guest room block is sold out. The company quotes a rate at another hotel, claiming it is an official room block and that you must reserve through them to get discounted rates. Then, they ask for your credit card information so they can make a reservation for you. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS or you will lose your money. This scam is affecting conferences nationwide. So no matter what meeting you attend, always use the hotel reservation links provided on the host organization’s web site.
