2020 Spring Committee on Petroleum Measurement Standards Meeting

When: March 23, 2020 - March 27, 2020

Where: Hyatt Regency Dallas, Dallas, Texas

Event Update

For the past few weeks, API has been paying close attention to the developing news about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). After much thoughtful deliberation and evaluation of the evolving situation, we regret to advise that we decided to cancel all of our widely attended meetings and conferences through at least May 1, 2020.

All registered attendees will receive a full refund of their registration fee(s). Sponsors and Exhibitors will also receive a full refund. As you can imagine this entails processing a significant number of transactions so we ask for your patience while we process refunds as quickly as possible.

We apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause to you and your business needs. In making this difficult decision, paramount is the health, safety, and welfare of our attendees. We acknowledge that the increase in company-mandated travel restrictions, as well as growing concerns over exposure have made it impossible to ensure the execution of a successful conference experience this spring.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you at a future meeting.

Reservations questions? If you need additional assistance, please call 1-800-233-1234 (central reservations). You may also call the hotel directly at 214-651-1234 and ask for in-house reservations if you have difficulty making online reservations or have specific questions.

Reservation Deadline: March 9, 2020 by 5:00 pm, CT.
After this date and time, reservations will be accepted on a space and room type availability basis and at the hotel's best rate available.

Room Guarantee and Reservation Cancellation: A credit card guarantee is required to confirm and hold each individual’s reservation. Cancellations must be received by the hotel at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to arrival and a cancellation number must be obtained or the card will be charged for the first night’s room rate. Hotel is responsible for informing guests of this requirement. API assumes no responsibility. Any payments received by the hotel as a result of late cancellations or no-shows will be credited to API’s room block for attrition purposes.

Avoid Housing Scams

Note: API has not contracted with any third party for hotel arrangements and will not call or email you directly to make housing arrangements on your behalf.

Should you receive a call or email from a third-party provider, please collect as much information as you can and let us know immediately. “Room Poachers” have been known to act as representatives of API, or authorized providers of API, to offer room discounts or alternative accommodations to our attendees – often to the attendee's detriment. These companies are not affiliated with API, and reservations made through these companies for our meeting cannot be guaranteed.

How It Works

This deceptive practice (called “room poaching”) is carried out by third‐party companies that act as travel agencies, wholesalers, or even API to solicit registrants for room reservations. The poacher might inform registrants that the hotel room block is “sold out,” and that if you do not book with them immediately, you may not get a room. Room poachers make it more difficult for us to meet our room block commitments, and expose us to penalties and increased room rates for our events. Room poachers often don't deliver on promises to customers. When customers arrive, reservations are non‐existent or the hotels are not conveniently located. Sometimes the rooms have been cancelled and hefty cancellation fees have been placed on the customer's credit card.

Don't Be Deceived

If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room for the API Conference, please get as much information as you can (their name, company name, phone number, etc.) and pass it along to Always make your room reservation directly with the information provided by API or a trusted source.

API will use all legal means possible to prevent these groups from operating.

Please contact with any questions.
