Conference Lodging Fraud Alert

CTF was recently made aware of "pirate" housing companies and travel agencies that aggressively pursue conference attendees to book their guest rooms at supposedly significant discounts. Do not be misled by companies that solicit you via email or over the phone and misrepresent themselves as the NF Conference official housing provider. We wish to make clear to our attendees that MCI France is the only official housing provider for the 2018 Joint Global NF Conference.   Neither CTF nor MCI have any affiliation with these organizations and we do not endorse their services. In addition, neither CTF nor MCI will contact you individually regarding your lodging unless we are responding to your direct inquiry.

If you need any assistance in booking your hotel room during the conference, please contact MCI directly  -
