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

Elsevier has learned that a third-party company, Exhibitor Housing Services (EHS), also operating under the name Exhibitor Housing Management (EHM), Traveller Point (TP) and Travel Housing team (THT) are targeting Elsevier conference speakers and attendees with a fraudulent travel and hotel booking scheme. The companies are calling and/or emailing conference speakers and attendees and falsely claiming it is the “official” housing bureau and/or authorized by Elsevier to book hotel and/or travel accommodations for the conference. This is entirely FALSE. Elsevier is not affiliated in any way with EHS, EHM, TP or THT.

Travel Information

How to reach the venue and hotel

The main airport serving our west side of the island, closest to the hotel, is Kona International (KOA) (the airport was recently re-named the Ellison Onizuka International Airport). The other airport on the island is Hilo. There is also the option of flying into Honolulu International Airport (HNL) on Oahu first and then taking a short, 45-50 minute flight to the Big Island. There are daily direct flights into Kona International Airport. Major air carriers from the U.S., Japan and Canada fly directly into Kona. Direct flights are from: Anchorage (seasonal), Bellingham, Dallas Ft. Worth, Denver, Los Angeles, Oakland, Phoenix, Portland, San Diego, Seattle, San Francisco, San Jose, Vancouver (seasonal), Haneda, and Narita. Some seasonal carriers also make the trip with charters.

There is no public transportation available on Hawaii Island, including from and to the airport. The best option is to use a taxi, Uber or contact either Big Island Transportation(S’ouvre dans une nouvelle fenêtre) or Speedi Shuttle(S’ouvre dans une nouvelle fenêtre) to arrange share rides.

All the major rental companies are found on the island of Hawaii. Rental car agencies are located at the Kona and Hilo International Airports as well as some resorts. Rental car companies are located just a short distance from both inter-island terminals. Taxis and other ground transportation are available curbside.

Hawaii County also offers free mass transit via the Hele On (Let’s Go) Bus. There are stops all around the island of Hawaii, with service between Kona and Hilo offered Monday through Saturday. All buses are wheelchair accessible, and it’s free to go anywhere on the island.
