WARNING - SCAM ALERT: Exhibitor Housing Services (EHS) & Exhibitor Housing Management (EHM), Traveller Point (TP) and Travel Hosting Team (THT)

Elsevier has been made aware that third-party companies are targeting Elsevier conference speakers and attendees with a fraudulent travel and hotel booking scheme.

The companies are calling/emailing conference attendees, using email addresses which appear very similar to official Elsevier email addresses, and claiming to be the “official” housing bureau and/or authorized by Elsevier to book hotel/travel accommodations for the conference. This is entirely false and should anyone contact you, please do not provide them with any of your details, but refer this to Elsevier. If you are in any doubt about an email regarding the conference, please check this with a member of the organising team via: [email protected]opens in new tab/window

Local Area and things to do

Just a short journey from Denver, tucked into the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, acres of vast open space roll into Boulder's quaint cityscape.

Highlights include:

Pearl Street

The brick-paved Pearl Street is Boulder's heart and soul — a central gathering place to stroll, shop and dine among the historic storefronts, if you do only one thing in Boulder, walking this pedestrian mall should probably be it.

The Flatirons

Boulder's Flatirons — slanting, massive slabs of sandstone that form Boulder's backdrop from just about any angle. The Chautauqua area affords the best way to get a closer look. Gaze up at them from the hiking area's beautiful meadow, where dozens of trails lead off into the foothills, then hike right up into the Flatirons if you are seeking a bit more exercise and adventure.

Learn all there is to know about Boulder on this unique tour that covers ghost stories, legend and more while you sit in a recliner or sofa and listen to the entertaining tour guide share fun facts and stories, for more information visit in new tab/window

Museum of Boulder at the Tebo Center
