Warning: Scam Alert

The organizers of UBEC have learned that a third-party company, Exhibitor Housing Services (EHS) – also known as Exhibitor Housing Management (EHM) and Business Travel Management (BTM), is targeting UBEC conference speakers and attendees with a fraudulent travel and hotel booking scheme. The company is calling and/or emailing conference speakers and attendees and falsely claiming it is the “official” housing bureau and/or authorized by UBEC and MRS to book hotel and/or travel accommodations for the conference. This is entirely false. UBEC and MRS are not affiliated in any way with EHS.
