Dear Members and Colleagues,

For those of you interested in attending the ISMB 2018 conference in Chicago,  please be aware of a potential scam being perpetrated by the company below:


The number they are calling from is 888-511-7396 and they are representing themselves as the Hyatt Regency Chicago offering discounted room rates. They will pressure into making your room reservation and then charge you immediately for their services.
This company is not to be used.  They are not endorsed by or affiliated with the conference.

onPeak is the only official hotel provider associated for the conference. Hotel reservations can be secured online or by calling them directly - more information can be found at www.iscb.org/ismb2018-accommodation.  onPeak will not call you to solicit reservations.

Be aware that other hotel resellers may contact you offering accommodations for your trip beyond the group noted above, they are not endorsed by or affiliated with the ISMB 2018. Entering into financial agreements with non-endorsed companies can have costly consequences. Contact ISCB immediately if you are contacted (This email address is being protected from spambots.
