For the security of your company, please make your arrangements for the 2019 ABA Annual Meeting directly through information provided to you via email from ABA, GES, or SmithBucklin representatives. We have heard from exhibitors that unofficial “travel agents” have been calling to offer rooms at the ABA event. No one from The American Burn Association makes these calls, so please do not book with these companies. The American Burn Association is not responsible for services booked through means other than our official vendors nor can we guarantee the authenticity of those offers.
