WARNING! FAKE Reservation Service trying to SCAM conference speakers! 

We have become aware of a scam where an organisation is pretending to be the designated travel agency for the conference organisers and is emailing invited speakers. If you receive emails from Travelhosting(dot)co(dot)uk, please be careful. The email includes a link to pay for accommodation by credit card. 

Please ignore the emails and do not reply nor click on any link given by them. You can also block the domain on your email client. 

This company is NOT a service partner of ARA. The appointed ARA conference organisers team (Madalina, Celia, Kate or Rose from Opening Doors & Venues) will email you from the domain The only way to book ARA speaker accommodation is via the link in emails sent from the domain If you are in doubt at any point, please email us on or phone our office on +44 (0) 1562 731 788. 

Please be assured that there has been no data breach at ARA or ODV. If any speaker receives an email like this it would just be a random scam and not the result of anyone's email address being stolen / leaked etc.
