Housing/Hotel for Symposium

All hotel reservations for the Symposium are made by the ISCEBS office.

We have recently been made aware of third party organizations that are contacting potential Symposium participants to assist in booking their Symposium hotel reservations, in some cases indicating the room block is nearly sold out, or offering a discount from the advertised rate. 

These organizations are not working with the Symposium or Society and have no authorization to book any hotel rooms on our behalf.

If you are contacted by such an organization claiming or implying an affiliation with ISCEBS or the Symposium, do not engage with them. Doing so may put you at risk of incurring nonrefundable deposits or booking fees, or an incorrect, nonexistent or canceled reservation.  Working with ISCEBS staff directly is the best way to make your hotel reservation at the host hotel.

Please contact us at (262) 786-8771 or if you have any questions or concerns.

Attendees represent corporations, consulting firms, health care organizations, hospitals, banks, insurance companies, investment and administration firms, jointly trusteed and public employee benefit plans, law firms and other organizations involved with employee benefits.
