Though the nature of the questions asked over the phone or the wording of the email can suggest that the caller/sender is from EBD Group, or operating with the approval of EBD Group, this is not the case. The blocked rooms in our official partner hotels are only available through the conference websites and EBD would never call delegates in order to promote hotel rooms or to collect credit card details.
