AOCS does not endorse third party companies who contact our delegates and exhibitors to book accommodations through their companies for any of our programs. These third party “pirate” companies reach out to delegates and exhibitors offering special discounted hotel rooms that do not exist. The primary objective of this solicitation is to obtain credit card information. AOCS has no affiliation with these companies and is unable to guarantee rates and accommodations made through these companies.
