    • Ask you to provide your contact information and credit card details, and require full pre-payment in advance.
    • Claim to have availability at their advertised hotels, but may take the money for the rooms, then later cancel without refund to you.

    When booking your hotel for the meeting, please be sure that you are booking through the link provided through ABMA and contact ABMA HQ if you are approached by a company making the above claims. The following companies have previously solicited attendees and exhibitors for hotel rooms and should be ignored:
