Warning – Fraudulent Websites and Booking Agencies

Register Safely

The meeting industry is confronted with an increasing number of fraudulent websites that impersonate legitimate meeting websites, and booking agencies that are not authorised to make bookings for meeting participants.

Encanta Event Management wishes to advise ACEM ASM 2018 members and delegates to be aware of possible scams and urges all participants to only use the official website

Encanta Event Management is the only official accommodation agency for this conference. If you are contacted by any other company or agency offering accommodation for ACEM ASM 2018, please note that these companies are not authorised to represent ACEM ASM 2018 in any way, nor do they have access to the officially contracted room blocks or rates.

Imitation sites and agencies invite meeting participants to supply their personal details including credit card information, in return for a promise to provide travel and accommodation. Please be aware that these unauthorised companies might not deliver what they promise, and in fact may not deliver anything to the meeting participant at all despite charging the credit card.

If you have any questions around the legitimacy of a supposed meeting website, or are contacted by any such agency, please don’t hesitate to contact us at and 03 9863 7608
