Buyer Beware – Fraudulent Room Reservations

The only way to make reservations at the special conference rate in the WSC block is by using the link provided at registration. Please do not book with an outside booking agent. If someone contacts you via email or phone claiming to be the official WSC travel agent or WSC hotel room booking agent, please know that this is a scam and you should not use them. All reservations should be made on your own.

Staying at WinterSim’s host hotel within our room blcok is particularly important this year! Here are some top reasons for staying at the conference hotel:

  • Booking at WSC’s host hotel not only benefits you but it has a significant impact on the Winter Simulation Conference as a whole. We have negotiated numerous concessions and benefits that are based on ensuring attendees stay at the hotel. If we don’t meet our commitment, WSC could be financially responsible for lost revenue to the hotel or have to pay extra costs for room rental, etc.
  • Added networking and social time with WSC attendees, sponsors and exhibitors is a key reason for attending an in-person event. By staying at the host hotel, you enhance opportunities to meet with colleagues and share experiences and ideas.
  • Marriott hotels have elevated rigorous standards and protocols to create a “new normal” in hospitality with their Connect with Confidence and Commitment to Clean programs.
