It has come to our attention that an undertaking trading as "Exhibitors Housing Services" and “Exhibitors Housing Management” (EHM/EHS) has approached invited speakers for The EMBO Meeting 2016.

EHM/EHS, who have an address both in Germany and in the US, contact speakers by email or telephone and create the impression to be the official housing partner of the conference in order to offer hotel reservation services. They are also asking for credit card details in order to book accommodation.

EHM/EHS do NOT represent EMBO, EMBL or our professional conference organizer MCI, furthermore they are not authorized to use any contact data of our speakers. We have taken legal steps to prevent EHM/EHS from contacting invited speakers.

We would like to reassure you all that EMBO, EMBL and MCI do NOT and would NOT share the contact database with third parties. If you are contacted by such a company by phone or email alluding to EMBO’s name and offering hotel reservation services, we urge you all to proceed with extreme caution. Ideally, simply ignore the interaction.

We encourage invited speakers to book their travel themselves or use a service provider that they know and trust. The EMBO Meeting team has made the necessary hotel arrangements in Mannheim already for you and you have been notified accordingly.

We encourage participants and exhibitors to book their travel themselves or use a service provider that they know and trust.
