It has been brought to our attention that there are fraudulent companies contacting past and previous exhibitors and participants, offering to “sell” our Attendee List or requesting data or money for misleading directory or event services.
Examples of companies we know about include an organisation claiming to be a US company called oc10tech and companies such as Influx Data solutions and Cloudtrade.
We suspect there may be others also involved in this type of scam.
None of these companies are affiliated with us.
Unfortunately this is quite a common scam within the exhibition industry where the organiser publishes an exhibitor list on its website and event app.
We would like to reassure all our clients that we NEVER sell or share our attendee data. Therefore, anyone claiming to be in possession of our attendee lists or be acting as our agent to sell our data is a complete fraud i.e. this is a scam.
We have received copies of some of the emails they are sending and are investigating the organisation involved, but if you have any further information or you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
If you’re ever unsure if a potential supplier is trustworthy, please remember to check our preferred contractors list within our Exhibitor Manual.
If you're still not sure, please give us a call, we are always here to talk these things through and help find solutions where we can.
