Warning - fraudulent websites and booking agencies
The congress industry is confronted with an increasing number of fraudulent websites that impersonate legitimate congress websites, and booking agencies that are not authorised to make bookings for congress participants.
The Conference Company Ltd wishes to advise IPBA 2017 participants to be aware of possible scams and urges all participants to only use the official IPBA 2017 website www.ipba2017.com.
The Conference Company Ltd is the only official accommodation agency for IPBA 2017. If you are contacted by any other company or agency offering accommodation for IPBA 2017, please note that these companies are not authorised to represent the IPBA 2017 in any way, nor do they have access to the officially contracted IPBA 2017 room blocks or rates.
Imitation sites and agencies invite congress participants to supply their personal details including credit card information, in return for a promise to provide travel and accommodation. Please be aware that these unauthorised companies might not deliver what they promise, and in fact may not deliver anything to the congress participant at all despite charging the credit card.
If you have any questions around the legitimacy of a supposed congress website, or are contacted by any such agency, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or +64 9 360 1240.
