Beware of Housing Scams

Beware of Hotel Solicitation! Maritz/MGE is the Official Housing Provider for Cell Bio 2024. Improper solicitation of hotel reservations from any company other than Maritz/MGE is not approved by ASCB. Reservations made by unaffiliated organizations may appear to have lower rates, however, they may be illegitimate, not have the room to sell, have unreasonable cancellation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable. Do not provide your personal or financial information to any other company. Only make your reservation through Maritz/MGE and the Cell Bio registration system. ASCB is unable to assist with bookings or related financial costs made through other companies. Please report any unauthorized solicitation to ASCB at 

Official Housing Block

Designated hotels near the Boston Convention and Exposition Center have been specially selected for your stay, provided at exclusive discounted rates. Booking within the hotel block helps keep the cost of registration from increasing each year. Book your housing during the registration process.

Why Book in the Official Housing Block?
  • Gain access to the lowest room rates available near the convention center; negotiated just for Cell Bio attendees.
  • Potentially lower your current reservation rates thanks to daily monitoring by MGE to track down rival rates and ensure you are getting the best deal.
  • Receive the best service with reservation protection, flexibility, and assistance before, during, and after your stay.

The housing deadline is November 19, 2024, 5 pm EST.

Select hotels may accept reservations until November 26, 2024.

Cancellation Policy

Your hotel room can be cancelled by logging into your account and removing your hotel room before the housing deadline of November 19 at 5 pm EST. Beginning on December 1, you can contact the hotel directly to cancel your reservation. You will need to cancel at least 72 hours before your arrival date for a full refund. If you cancel after this time, or do not show up for your reservation, the credit card used to reserve the reservation will be charged for the rate of one night hotel stay plus tax.

Hotel reservations are nontransferable.

Room Share Application

To assist with hotel expenses, which can be an expensive part of attending any meeting, the ASCB and EMBO provide a room share service for all registered meeting participants. Applications can be submitted through November 16, 2024, at 12:00 noon EST.

The room share service is intended to help attendees save meeting costs by room sharing. It is available to each registered meeting attendee who fills out the form. Once you fill out the form, you will be able to download a list of others who are interested in sharing a room.

It is the responsibility of each participant in the program to communicate with and to work out an agreement with a potential room-sharer. The ASCB’s and EMBO’s roles are strictly limited to the maintenance of the list of registrants who have signified interest in the program. The ASCB will maintain the list but does not (a) screen participants, (b) make any determination as to the appropriateness of any resulting room share, or (c) represent that any room-share which may follow use of the service will prove to be satisfactory to the participants. Please take note also of the waiver of liability which is a condition of the use of the service.

The ASCB and EMBO assume no responsibility with respect to these services and accepts no liabilities.

  • Smoking preference
