The Congress Secretariat has learned that a third-party company Business Travel Management (BTM) is targeting VasCog 2018 Congress speakers and attendees with a fraudulent travel and hotel booking scheme. The company is calling and/or emailing conference speakers and attendees and falsely claiming it is the “official” housing bureau and/or authorized by the VasCog 2018 Congress to book hotel and/or travel accommodations for the conference.


The VasCog 2018 Congress is not affiliated in any way with BTM or any other travel agent. Please be aware that this is a SCAM designed to obtain your credit card information and/or make phony charges to your credit card. Please exercise extreme caution when contacted by BTM or any other travel agent and DO NOT give this company your credit card number, personal information, or any details about your hotel reservation. The Congress Secretariat Team from The Chinese University of Hong Kong will be handling all the hotel reservations for all invited speakers.
