 Accommodation

The organisers have been made aware that a number of scam service providers have been contacting speakers, such as Convention Hotel Services.

These companies are not related to the organisers of the conference and we strongly advise you to not accept their services.
They operate by calling people offering cheaper accommodation. They are also posing as the official housing agency and asking for credit card details in order to confirm bookings.

We will not cold call you to offer accommodation. If you receive any calls from a company offering hotel rooms or other services related to the Conference please be aware that they may be scamming you.
