We would like to make you aware of a situation that has been brought to our attention. There is a company, Exhibition Housing Management (EHM), who has been contacting attendees of upcoming events to assist with hotel reservations.

Please note that only GUARANT International, as the official Symposium Secretariat, is authorized to offer hotel reservation services for the IAS 2016.

In case you are contacted by any other companies/ unknown vendors by phone or emails using the IAS 2016 name or logo, and offering hotel reservation services, we urge all attendees not to sign anything or enter into any conversation with them or reply to any emails.


GUARANT International (further referred to also as the Symposium Secretariat) has been appointed as the official hotel accommodation agent for the Symposium of the International Atherosclerosis Society (IAS 2016) and will handle all related arrangements.
