    Fraud Alert

    Fraudulent companies, pretending to be associated with the Academy and AAO 2021 may appear in web searches or may contact you via email. These companies claim that they can book hotel rooms and/or register you for the Academy's annual meeting, but they are unaffiliated with the Academy.

    If you are ever in doubt, email meetings@aao.org or call 1.415.561.8500 to confirm before reserving a hotel room or registering.

    Cancelling Hotel Rooms

    Hotel cancellation policies vary, but rooms must be canceled between 24 and 72 hours prior to arrival. Refer to your confirmation for your hotel’s cancellation policy to avoid a one night’s room and tax penalty.
