The CAR has become aware that a third party travel provider, by the name of Global Traveller, contacted one of our exhibitors and offered to assist them with their hotel reservation for the CAR 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting. The exhibitor assumed that since the caller knew of their participation at the meeting, that the travel provider was operating on behalf of the CAR ASM and proceeded to make a hotel reservation with the agent. Upon receipt of the credit card statement, the exhibitor noted that this agent was operating from the United States and the exhibitor contacted the CAR sponsorship coordinator. The exhibitor was charged an administration fee and the transaction was in US dollars.
We would like to take this opportunity to confirm that the CAR does not endorse any third party travel agents and does not share your contact information with any such organizations. We encourage all sponsors and exhibitors to make their hotel reservations directly with our Le Centre Sheraton Montréal hotel to benefit from the negotiated room rate of $199 CDN via this link (click the tab labeled "LANGUE" and select "English").
If your group is approached by someone presenting themselves as an agent of the CAR 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting, please don’t hesitate to be in touch with the CAR directly.
