Beware of phising scams

We have been made aware of false claims by an organisation approaching AIEC delegates pretending to be official AIEC accommodation partners.

Please be aware of these phishing scams and do not provide personal information such as credit card details to an organisation you do not recognise.

If you receive an email or phone call about the conference that appears suspicious, we would appreciate if you could let us know by emailing

Also, please be aware your data has not been compromised. If you have any concerns around your data or the conference in general, please do not hesitate to contact us.
