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 Sleep DownUnder 2018 participants to be aware of possible scams and urges all participants to only use the official Sleep DownUnder website www.sleepdownunder.com
The Conference Company Ltd is the only official accommodation agency for Sleep DownUnder 2018. If you are contacted by any other company or agency offering accommodation for Sleep DownUnder 2018, please note that these companies are not authorised to represent the Sleep DownUnder 2018 in any way, nor do they have access to the officially contracted Sleep DownUnder 2018 room blocks or rates.
Imitation sites and agencies invite congress 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 call 1800 193 405 within Australia and +64 9 360 1240 within New Zealand.
