**It has come to our attention that a number of accommodation service providers have contacted companies supporting Plastics & Paper in Contact with Foodstuffs 2018 regarding hotel reservations. When delegates say they have already booked they are told that they need to finalise their booking by completing a form with credit card details. This generates a new booking and a 25% deposit is immediately charged to the card - this is non-refundable and any cancellation incurs a heavy penalty. These companies DO NOT represent Smithers and should NOT be given any credit card information.

We recommend only booking through the link above.
