AMIA 2016 | Scam Alert

  16.08.01 1:30pm

A word of warning...

We received notice this morning that a third-party company, Exhibitor Housing Services (EHS) is contacting conference sponsors and speakers, introducing themselves as an official 'housing bureau' or expo planning group working with AMIA or as a representative from the Omni William Penn and offereing room rates lower than those quoted on our website. This has been reported by a number of other conferences as well, where the information is represented that there is an issue with your hotel reservation, or that the hotel is sold out.

This is not the case. EHS is not affiliated in any way with AMIA or with the Omni and it is possible they will charge you undisclosed booking fees in addition to the rates they are quoting. We have contacted the hotel and they strongly emphasized this is not a legitimate offer.

We would strongly recommend that you do not give any personal information, including credit card details to EHS or any other unknown vendor. Other organizations have reported substantial credit card charges and hotel rooms were never booked on credit cards provided to EHS. If you receive an e-mail from EHS, please forward to it amia@amianet.org

In order to guarantee your hotel reservation, please go to the hotel page on the AMIA 2016 website http://www.amiaconference.net/omni-william-penn-hotel/
