Housing and Travel

The Baltimore Convention Center will serve as the headquarters for the 2017 Annual Meeting.   

HOUSING SCAM ALERT! Unauthorized third parties are contacting previous Annual Meeting attendees and offering discounted hotel rooms for the ASTMH 2017 Annual Meeting. These solicitations ask for credit card information and have resulted in fraudulent charges. Hang up on them.

We also have a report of a woman calling and claiming to represent one of the Baltimore hotels. "Julie Henry" offered to sell rooms and left the following number: (800) 348-5816 ext 103. None of our hotels will call and solicit your business. Hang up on people like this.

And if you have been approached by anyone offering a special hotel rate or hotel room for the ASTMH Meeting, please contact info@astmh.org.
