Warning About Housing Scams
The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) as the owner and producer of the SNAME Maritime Convention never uses third parties to book rooms. If you are ever contacted by a company intending to assist you in purchasing a room at the Marriott or other property for SMC, this is likely a fraud.
Scammers are contacting individuals who have registered for SMC. They may claim to have attendee/exhibitor contact information or that they can book sleeping rooms at a “better” price. Please know that SNAME is the only entity with access to registrant/attendee contact information, which is never sold to third parties.
Please be sure you are booking hotel reservations directly through the Marriott links on this page or directly with the hotel to avoid being subject to housing scams.
