The ODA does not engage the services of a convention bureau. There may be fraudulent companies posing as legitimate third-party vendors (e.g. registration and/or housing companies) marketing their services for the ASM18. Attendees may be asked to pay registration fees or housing deposits to these companies only to arrive onsite at the event to find that there are no records of their registrations of hotel reservations.
The online registration link above will take you directly to our registration site. Convention Data Services are the official registration vendor for the ASM.
