PLEASE NOTE: EXPERIENT IS THE ONLY OFFICIAL HOTEL RESERVATION AGENCY OF THE SGO ANNUAL MEETING ON WOMEN’S CANCER

Third-party companies illegally represent themselves as travel agencies, soliciting attendees and exhibitors, and offering to assist them with their hotel reservations. This practice, known as “room poaching”, can have serious consequences, including higher room rates, non-existent reservations at check-in, loss of pre-payment, or sub-standard hotel accommodations.

Room poachers require pre-payment for rooms but do not make a hotel reservation for you. Payment cannot be reclaimed, resulting in significant monetary loss.

Room poachers contact registrants and represent themselves as the Annual Meeting’s hotel reservation agency, using a variety of tactics, including

  • Distributing promotional materials that utilize the name or logo of the Symposium
  • Insisting rooms be reserved and/or paid for immediately
  • Offering discounted room rates below the Symposium room rate

If you are contacted by anyone who is not with Experient or the Society of Gynecologic Oncology, please contact Amber Hranicka at amber.hranicka@sgo.org with as much information regarding the poacher as possible.
