Accommodation and Transport
It has come to our attention that a scamming company "Exhibition Housing Services" has approached invited speakers for conferences taking place at the EMBL Advanced Training Centre and claiming to be the official housing partner of the conference and offering hotel reservation and travel services. They are asking for credit card details in order to book travel and accommodation. This company does NOT represent EMBL, furthermore they are not authorised to use any contact data of our partners.
We would like to reassure you all that EMBL does NOT and would NOT share the contact database to third parties. If you are contacted by such a company by phone or email using EMBL’s name and offering hotel reservation services, we urge you all to proceed with extreme caution. Simply ignore the interaction.
We encourage invited speakers to book their travel themselves or use a service provider that they know and trust. EMBL has made the necessary hotel arrangements for you and you will be notified accordingly.
We encourage participants and exhibitors to book their travel themselves or use a service provider that they know and trust. EMBL has blocked rooms in the hotels listed below – please contact the hotel with the conference code.
