IMPORTANT - PHISHING SCAM ALERT
For those of you planning to attend the upcoming meeting in Austin, please be aware of possible phishing scams about housing and hotel reservations. There is no official housing bureau for the SICB. All reservations are to be made directly at the hotel from either the online form or calling the number above. Neither SICB nor the hotel makes outbound calls for reservations/sales. If you are contacted by any agency offering to make your hotel reservations for the SICB, we urge you to not use their services and report this to the SICB Meetings Director, Lori Strong, immediately. The rooms these agencies offer are usually at higher rates, are non-refundable and/or carry a significant cancellation penalty.
Remember: the only way to secure a room is by booking DIRECTLY with the JW Austin.
Staying at the Conference Hotel
Why should I book at the conference hotels?
The hotel rates that the SICB has negotiated include many benefits for you and for the SICB. Based on the number of rooms in the SICB block of hotel rooms, the hotels provide complimentary meeting-room space and reduced food and beverage charges. These savings are passed on to attendees through SICB inexpensive registration rates. If SICB is unable to meet its room-block commitment because attendees are making reservations at other hotels, the hotels charge SICB an attrition fee to make up the hotel's lost revenue. If this were to become a trend, SICB would be forced to increase the registration fee and cut services.
Please stay at the SICB conference hotel!
