Beware of fake and misleading websites and e-mails

Please be aware that there are several commercial registration and hotel booking companies, entirely independent to ECNP, who create fake and misleading websites, offering registration and hotel rooms for the ECNP Congress. Some companies also try to actively sell registration or hotel accommodation by phone. These organisations are not linked to ECNP and are using our name and /or logo without authorisation.
