WARNING! It has come to our attention that a number of accommodation service providers have contacted companies supporting Specialty Papers Europe 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.
