Exhibitors, beware of trade show scammers. There are lots of them.
There are many people that try to fool exhibitors that these separate companies actually represent the official trade show organization that actually operate and own a particular show. They will often use the show logo and their official website. These companies likely do not represent the show in any way, but will offer you lists of emails, promotions, promotional listings, web listings, hotel rooms, etc. Always contact your sales representatives or the show owners for more information.
Never ever, ever buy emails from list brokers. A good and reputable show organization will never sell you email listings.
