Notice to delegates and exhibitors

Beware of Room Poachers! Occasionally, unauthorized third-party housing companies will contact conference delegates to get them to reserve their sleeping room through their housing company.  This is a scam! Please note that you will NEVER receive a phone call directly from Smithers Rapra or vendors on their behalf. In order to make a legitimate sleeping room reservation with the Conference Hotel, please contact the hotel directly.
