Stay Safe, Avoid Exhibitor Scams



SPE notifies exhibitors when accommodations are open and the housing link is posted on event websites.

If available, view the Official Contractor List (located on each event's Exhibitor Resources page) to ensure communications received are from an official housing contractor and are not part of a scam.

If a show has an official housing contractor, other housing companies are not authorized to contact exhibitors.


If you receive a document from a company called Fair Guide (also known as Construct Data Verlag AG or Expo Guide) that lists SPE or one of our events and offers advertising space, do not sign the form unless you have read and understand the terms. We have no association with this company, nor have we authorized them to use our name or trademark.

 Learn more about Fair Guide.

Be cautious of companies claiming to sell/rent the event attendee list. These companies have no association with SPE and are not authorized to use the SPE name or trademark. SPE does not sell/rent attendee information to any third party.

If you have concerns about these companies, contact the Fair Trade Commission (FTC) or the equivalent for your country/state.
