 I've been contacted by a company trying to get me to book hotel rooms - is this legitimate?

The M Resort is the only hotel the FRM conference has contracted with. We've received reports that companies are posing as the official housing vendor for the FRM conference and may contact you offering housing for your trip. They are not endorsed by or affiliated with the IAFC and entering into financial agreements with such companies can have costly consequences.

A hotel poacher/pirate is any unaffiliated hotel or third-party housing company that acts as an official housing company and solicits business from FRM participants. When individuals book hotel accommodations through poachers or pirates the consequences can be costly; event participants may be left without hotel rooms when they arrive at the event and incur fraudulent charges on their credit cards. Please report any questions or concerns to conferences@iafc.org.
