The success of the 15th Meeting of the International Mesothelioma Interest Group (iMig 2020) depends on delegates, sponsors and exhibitors using the official Conference hotels. Contracted room obligations cannot be met if registrants reserve rooms outside the official hotels or book hotels through channels other than the official Housing Secretariat. Rooms that are not filled through the official channels create an expense for the Conference in the form of financial penalties (attrition fees) and place the financial success of the Conference and the Association at risk.
The iMig 2020 Secretariat (International Conference Services Ltd.) will assist delegates with their housing requirements. A limited number of guest rooms at the Rydges South Bank Brisbane and the West End Central Apartments will be offered to delegates at discounted rates and will only be available through the online registration form. Please do not contact the hotels.
Housing Piracy Warning
Please beware of housing piracy companies. They are contacting delegates/sponsors to book rooms through their channels and are claiming that they control the rooms for the Conference. They do not.
These companies charge non-refundable deposits from the moment you book their rooms; thus making it impossible for delegates to cancel their reservations. In some situations, rooms are not booked but payment has been taken.
