Fair Guide Construct Data Publishers
In the past, a large number of our exhibitors have been sent misleading information from Construct Data Publishers concerning their FAIR GUIDE. In response we have sent them a Cease and Desist letter from our legal counsel. The firm is notorious. In fact, the International Association of Exhibitions and Events has been fighting this group for years. There is an area on the IAEE website that can provide some guidance on how to react if you have been taken in by their pitch. Visit this link for details.
IPPE Attendee List Scam Alert
Unauthorized "IPPE" Attendee List Solicitations
If you have been approached by a third-party vendor to purchase an IPPE attendee list, it is a scam. IPPE show management suggests that you do not respond or engage with these vendors. Management does try to keep an eye on these offenders and sends cease and desist requests, as well as reports them to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Management also sends out information educating exhibitors and members on proper handling of these requests, if received.
