For your safety we advise all attendees to only use the official conference website for all conference related bookings; accommodation, trade exhibition and registration. Conferences & Events Ltd is the official accommodation agency for all hotel rooms that have been secured. Any other organisation contacting you to offer hotel rates should be ignored – they are most likely a scam and highly likely to result in you losing any money you pay to them.
