Please note that we, the organisers, have been alerted to the fact that fraudulent hotel and travel agencies may solicit speakers and exhibitors of international conferences and exhibitions to sell non-existing rooms. Any calls or e-mails from companies offering these services are scams - and are in no way associated or endorsed by our organisation and event. We have not provided any contact details of OEB exhibitors, sponsors, speakers or participants to these companies and strongly warn you against booking hotel rooms through any company which claims to be associated with the event.
