Be Wary of Unofficial Registration and Housing Sites

Be advised that there are several not-approved registration and housing sites that are posting information for the 2020 meeting. These sites are also using the Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) name to solicit potential attendees and exhibitors with fraudulent offers via email. For information regarding registration and hotel blocks, please use our website only.

Here are some of the false sites that we have identified so far. These sites may also appear as first-page search results for internet searches related to DDW or Digestive Disease Week. However, they are not third-party providers and are not affiliated with DDW in any way.

What To Look For

Trusted meeting information can be found on the DDW website. The official registration site is https://www.xpressreg.net/register/ddwk0520/start.asp and will display the official vendor seal, seen here. Registration confirmation emails will be sent from [email protected] and will also display the official seal.

Housing confirmation emails will be sent from and will display the official onPeak seal, seen here. All other official DDW emails will only come from an @ddw.org email address.

See Something, Say Something

If there are any questions about the authenticity of a company or email, please contact DDW Administration.

Please note that unless you pre-booked housing for the 2020 meeting onsite at DDW 2019, member registration and housing open Jan. 15, 2020, and general registration and housing open Jan. 22, 2020.
