WSC 2018 Fraudulent Room Reservations!!  We have learned once again that some WSC guests are receiving emails and phone calls from an agency claiming to be the official travel agent (ex. Business Travel Management)  or WSC hotel room booking agent.  Please note that this is a scam and you should not use them.  The only way to make reservations at the special conference rate in the WSC block is by using the link above or calling directly into the hotel.  If you have already reserved with an outside agent, we recommend cancelling right away and please be alert for fraudulent charges on your credit card. We apologize for the inconvenience.
