Important! For all school speakers and attendees!

We have learned that third part companies are contacting school speakers and attendees offering to make travel arrangements (hotel and flight bookings) on our behalf and asking for credit card details in order to proceed. PLEASE NOTE these agencies are not authorized by us, this is most likely a fraud.

For any doubt do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you!
