NOTICE: IASB is the only official Conference housing bureau. Be aware of third parties placing calls or sending emails identifying themselves as the “official” housing bureau for Conference or claiming to be “affiliated with” or “working on behalf of” IASB for Conference housing. Sometimes these companies illegally use the IASB or event logo and other information to appear legitimate. Often they issue a warning that room blocks are selling out while providing the lure of a lower room rate. Booking through these third parties may subject attendees to, at worst, credit card fraud opportunities and/or no room reservations in their names upon arrival to Conference, and at best, lower-tier hotels or a hotel away from the Conference host hotel. If you are contacted by anyone other than IASB staff regarding your housing, report it to:
