Housing Scam Alert

Orchid Event Solutions is the official housing provider for the 2016 International Annual Meetings in Phoenix, AZ.  They will not contact you unless they are following up on a housing request you have submitted.

If you are contacted by any other company claiming to offer special housing deals we strongly suggest not providing credit card information to them. If you have already made a housing reservation and it was not with Orchid Event Solutions, you are encouraged to cancel your reservation and rebook it through the Annual Meeting’s official housing provider. Your housing reservation is safe and secure when it is made with Orchid Event Solutions.
