It has come to our attention that organizations working under the guise of Cruise Ship Interiors Expo have been trying to sell attendee lists and hotel rooms to exhibitors.
Please be aware of the following companies involved in these industry related scams: Expo Guide, ExpoFairs, FairGuide.com and Construct Data Verlag.
The above companies and more have been targeting exhibitors, claiming to work with the show organizers.
To ensure the safety of our exhibitors, we advise that under no circumstances should you share your information, sign anything, or give money to these organizations. If you choose to enter into a deal with them, please be vigilant and be sure to read the small print, as these scams can have extremely costly consequences.
The aforementioned companies have NO affiliation to Cruise Ship Interiors Expo. We will NEVER offer to sell you the attendee list and the only place to book an official hotel with preferential rates is at www.cruiseshipinteriors-expohotels.com through DF Meetings & Events.
If you are in any doubt as to whether an organization is genuine or not, please feel free to email us or call directly on +44 1273 086330
Finally, if you have been the victim of an industry related scam, the Association of Event Organizers (AEO) advises the following:
Report it to your local trading standards
Do not pay anything
Do not communicate with the scammers, even when they threaten legal action
Complain to the receiving bank that their client (the scammer) is obtaining money by deception
