CASE Conferences have recently become the target of wholesaler companies trying to sell rooms for CASE Conferences. If you receive a phone call offering to make your reservation and take credit card information over the phone for a CASE Conference, do not conduct this transaction! You run the risk of arriving at the hotel and not having a reservation, or being unable to change or cancel your reservation without penalty, and possibly compromising your credit card details. It is recommended CASE Conference attendees follow the suggested channels for booking accommodation within the conference block following the instructions on this page.
