Beware of Hotel and Attendee-list Scams
It has come to our attention that scammers are targeting our meeting attendees and exhibitors, attempting to sell attendee lists and solicit bookings at unauthorized hotels. AAM does not rent or sell email lists to third parties.
Attendee List Email Scam
Unfortunately, emails offering to sell attendee lists from our annual conference are often sent by scammers impersonating the American Alliance of Museums. If you receive emails that propose to sell the American Alliance of Museums conference attendee lists, do not engage with the sender and delete the email.
Hotel Booking Scam
Large conferences, including AAM’s, are also often the target of hotel scams. Scammers call or email attendees and exhibitors, claiming to represent AAM and encourage customers to book rooms using fake promotion codes at a variety of hotels close to the conference venue(s). AAM and our host hotels will never send emails or place phone calls to individuals in order to promote specific accommodations. Any legitimate message to attendees will direct them to the conference’s hotel information page, where attendees will find secure links to our approved hotels.
If you receive emails or calls regarding discounted AAM hotel accommodations, please do not engage with the sender and delete the email.
