Warning for Speakers and Exhibitors

It has come to our notice that a certain “Housing Agency” has contacted a number of our FEBS speaker and clients who are supporting the 40th FEBS congress – The Biochemical Basis of Life in Berlin, citing to be the official housing partner of the event and offering hotel reservation services.

Please note that this company does not represent the FEBS, the GBM or MCI as our official congress organizer, furthermore they are not authorised to use any contact data of our partners. We also want to reassure that neither the FEBS nor the GBM or MCI communicates our clients contact database to third parties.

If you are being contacted by Housing Agencies by phone or emails using FEBS’s name and offering hotel reservation services, we urge speaker, exhibitor and FEBS 2015 attendees to proceed with extreme caution before signing anything sent by Exhibition Housing Agencies or entering into any conversation with the mentioned agencies or replying to any emails received.

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Biochemie und Molekularbiologie (GBM) has appointed MCI as the sole authorised accommodation booking agency for the 40th FEBS Congress. We strongly recommend to book hotel rooms through MCI via febs2015(at)mci-group.com or a service provider that you know and trust.
