Large conferences and events often become targets for companies seeking to take advantage of the attendees. Some of our members have recently reported to us that they’ve been contacted by third party companies for several reasons including posing as a housing (hotel) vendors for WEEC and / or offering to sell our attendee list to them.
AEE does not sell the attendee list for our conferences to any third-party companies or list brokers. These solicitations are simply an attempt to confirm your email address and get your credit card information. We are working with our legal representation to combat this issue.
In addition, AEE is not utilizing the services of any outside housing service, and has not authorized any third party to contact our event participants. AEE is committed to providing you with the best hotel rates available. Hotel reservations should be booked directly with the hotel either by phone or by using the online links provided on this page. AEE will not call you about hotel rooms, nor will we authorize anyone else to do so. If you are contacted by parties identifying themselves as being with this show, DO NOT respond, and absolutely DO NOT give them your credit card information. If you do so, your card may be charged but you may not have a reservation when you arrive or you may find that your reservation is not cancellable. If you do make your hotel reservations outside of our block as shown on this page, AEE will be unable to assist if problems arise with your reservations.
