I’ve been invited to an International Swine Flu Conference.

The conference is in London next month, and promises a number of expert speakers, as well as exciting break-out seminars on subjects like “Mass fatality management planning” and “911 call center services” (sic). It’s all arranged by an american firm, and payment (in US dollars by “check” or credit card) is required when booking.

As usual, the small print is worth reading –
– the conference is in London in three weeks time – but the actual venue hasn’t yet been confirmed.
– the T’s + C’s of booking include the following gem: “If for any reason (the organisers) decides to postpone this conference…the conference fee will not be refunded, but can be credited to a future conference”

Well that’s not at all suspicious then.
