Warning: Fraudulent websites and booking agencies
The meeting industry is confronted with an increasing number of fraudulent websites that impersonate legitimate meeting websites, and booking agencies that are not authorised to make bookings for meeting participants.
The Conference Company Ltd wishes to advise HAA 2017 participants to be aware of possible scams and urges all participants to only use the official HAA 2017 website www.haa2017.com.
The Conference Company Ltd is the only official accommodation agency for HAA 2017. If you are contacted by any other company or agency offering accommodation for HAA 2017, please note that these companies are not authorised to represent the HAA 2017 in any way, nor do they have access to the officially contracted HAA 2017 room blocks or rates.
Imitation sites and agencies invite meeting 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 meeting participant at all despite charging the credit card.
If you have any questions around the legitimacy of a supposed meeting 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 or 1800 193 405 (within Australia)
