Attending the 19th IMS Annual Meeting? Please book your hotel through the official IMS hotel reservation system.

Fraud Alert

Several fraudulent companies, pretending to be associated with the Society and the 19th IMS Annual, may appear in web searches or may have contacted you via email. Fraudulent sites can appear similar to the Society or IMS Annual sites, in some cases even using the Society’s or IMS’s Annual logo. They claim that they can book hotel rooms and/or register you for the IMS Annual, but they are unaffiliated with the Society and IMS Annual.

To avoid these scams, it is very important that you only book hotel rooms and register through the links provided by the Society. The exclusive and official registration and housing provider for the 19th IMS Annual is SPARGO, Inc. Be sure to verify the site address and/or email address in any link before continuing.

If you are ever unsure, you can email the Society or email SPARGO directly at or call toll free at 888-788-1522 (+1 703-449-6418 International).

Hotel Confirmation

If you make a hotel reservation online or by phone, you will receive a confirmation email instantly. If you do not receive your hotel reservation confirmation email, please first check your email spam filter before calling the IMS Housing Center.

Cancellation/Change Policy

To cancel or change a hotel reservation online, you will need your confirmation number and the email address used to make the reservation. Online requests are acknowledged with an immediate email confirmation.

You may cancel or make changes to your hotel reservation either in writing or online until 5:00 PM PDT (UTC-05:00) on August 3, 2022. To avoid costly penalties, all hotel reservations must be cancelled 72 hours prior to arrival. If cancelled less than 72 hours of arrival, a cancellation fee equal to the value of your entire stay (all nights previously booked) including tax will be charged to the credit card on file. 

Written cancellation requests should be sent to the IMS Housing Center.  Cancellation requests will be acknowledged, and confirmation will be issued within five business days. After August 3, 2022, all changes to accommodations must be made directly through your hotel.

Between August 3rd and August 4th, housing records will be transferred from the IMS Housing Center to the individual hotels; therefore, delegates are strongly encouraged to wait until after August 5th to contact the hotels directly to make changes or cancellations.

All hotels’ cancellation policies will be strictly enforced. Please retain the cancellation confirmation from the IMS Housing Center or the cancellation number provided to you by the hotel, as proof of cancellation will be required to resolve any credit card disputes.
