Beware of Hotel Scammers

Do not be misled by outside housing or travel agencies claiming to be the official housing provider for the upcoming AAS annual conference or offering ‘official rooms’ outside of the hotel block. The AAS DOES NOT work with any outside companies. Unfortunately, unscrupulous providers sometimes claim to provide housing for meetings and conferences when they are in no way affiliated with the conference organizers. This practice is a scam that attendees should be aware of in order to avoid passing on personal or financial information. Reservations made by unaffiliated organizations may be illegitimate, not have the rooms to sell, have unreasonable cancelation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable. Please notify us at aasconference@asianstudies.org if you are contacted by any company claiming to provide housing for the AAS.
