Reservations which have been obtained through agencies other than the official SABCS® Housing Bureaus (Orchid Events & SABCS IGH) are not guaranteed.
Beware of pirates and poachers!
SABCS contracts for blocks of hotel rooms at discounted rates for the benefit of our attendees. Pirates and poachers not only jeopardize the symposium’s ability to meet its obligations, but also place attendees in danger of increased fees, credit card theft and phony reservations, resulting in no hotel room at all!
- PIRATE: A fictitious business, often with a name like “Convention Housing Services.” A pirate will contact faculty, exhibitors or potential attendees. The pirate claims to be working with the symposium and will pressure you to reserve and pay for a hotel room immediately due to low inventory. They charge your credit card and also collect the information for future use but no hotel rooms are reserved.
- POACHER: Hotel poachers, also known as third-party room-block marketing firms, often present themselves as either the official housing agency for a conference or authorized by it to book hotel reservations. A poacher offers hotel rooms outside of the symposium’s contracted block. For the attendee, this will result in higher hotel rates and loss of the opportunity to receive a 15% discount off your symposium registration fee.
REMEMBER: NEITHER SABCS NOR ITS HOUSING BUREAUS, ORCHID EVENTS & SABCS IGH, WILL TELEPHONE INDIVIDUALS REGARDING THE PURCHASE OF HOTEL RESERVATIONS.
PIRATES and POACHERS often misrepresent themselves by illegally using our logo.
