    Beware Fraudulent Housing Company Alert

    • Beware of "housing pirates" that may contact you by phone or email. These are scams. ASMS and its housing bureau, managed by Orchid Events, does NOT solicit by phone or email for hotel reservations.
    • We are already aware that a company is calling ASMS exhibitors (corporate members) and luring them to call an 800 phone number by claiming that they have important information about the ASMS conference in Indianapolis.
    • Remember, ASMS does not solicit attendees for housing reservations. Please do not be baited by anyone who does.
    • PROTECT YOURSELF and use  the official ASMS-sanctioned Housing Bureau, which you can access only through this website.
    • ASMS is not responsible for and cannot guarantee any reservations made through any third party housing provider. We look forward to seeing you in Indianapolis!
