Important Information For All Conference Registrants (attendees, sponsors and speakers):
It has come to our attention that a company called Exhibition Housing Services has been systematically contacting our sponsors, speakers and attendees in an attempt to mislead them into believing that our Conference room block (and discounted rates) are no longer available. This company then tries to secure a credit card number, claiming they can book rooms for our registrants at other nearby hotels. This is a fraud. Please disregard any communications from Exhibition Housing Services, or other similar entities, and contact Linda Dunn, conference coordinator at Financial Advisor magazine with any questions or concerns.
