ATTENTION: Avoid Hotel Fraud 

Unfortunately, several exhibitors and attendees of different congresses each year fall prey to accommodation offers from fraudulent companies.

Fraudulent companies repeatedly email our show participants with room offers for the week of CUTTING EDGE PATHOLOGY. Their website and/or emails mention CUTTING EDGE PATHOLOGY Congress, and even include our logo in the hopes of looking like an official or legitimate provider.

These groups promote attractive deals with local accommodation providers, but once payment has been received, the company disappears and can no longer be contacted by phone or email. Once the attendee contacts the hotel directly about their room, they realise the hotel has no record of them or their stay. Not only is their money gone, they must then scramble to find last-minute accommodation, which is rarely convenient to the venue.

This practice takes money directly from our customers and negatively impacts their CUTTING EDGE PATHOLOGY experience. We do everything we can to stop these companies preying on our attendees, and we don’t want this to happen to you.

Room reservations should be made directly with the hotel, using the reservation link above. This is the only official way to book a room for Congress. Neither the CUTTING EDGE PATHOLOGY, nor solution office, utilize the services of any housing/accommodation vendor(s) and do not contact attendees regarding accommodations. Please do not make arrangements with any vendors who contact you directly to offer help with booking accommodations for the CUTTING EDGE PATHOLOGY Congress 2017.
