INDUSTRY SCAM WARNING TO EXHIBITORS

*Attention all Exhibitors. Please be aware of the following scams.

You may have received a solicitation from either Exhibition Housing Services, The Rooms Connect (aka Rooms Connection), Convention Housing Services, Six Point Travel, Tradefair Services, or other travel agencies of which we are not aware, soliciting your Hotel Reservations.  Please be advised that these companies are in no way affiliated with the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show or any other show presented by Show Management, and may not be authorized by the hotels to make reservations either.

We recognize only one company, BoatShowHotels.com, as the Official Hotel Provider, and they have negotiated hotel rates specifically for Exhibitors that can be booked and managed on their site, which is dedicated to our shows, and in some cases provide additional amenities and options not available by booking directly or with other companies.

If you have, or are considering booking with anyone other than www.BoatShowHotels.com   (which links via our website to their booking engine to give you confidence), you do so at your own risk.  Some have already made unnecessary deposits or signed punitive contracts that have lock them in through deception, and we do not want this to happen to you.  Affected hotels have confirmed they do not work with these companies, and cannot honor bookings made via unapproved channels.

If you would like to know more, or you feel you may have already been a victim of one of these companies, you may contact Mia Prieto from BoatShowHotels.com at (954) 548-0878 or by email at mia@boatshowhotels.com . She may be able to assist you in confirming the validity of your reservations, or make new, protected reservations for you.  We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this unauthorized solicitation may have created. 

Sincerely,

Show Management an informa business

You may have received a solicitation from FAIR Guide, soliciting your “updated” FREE listing/advertisement in their exhibitor directory.

We are very proud of our Show Program, which is distributed at all show entrances. We do not endorse or participate in the FAIR Guide and unauthorized exhibitor guides such as FAIR GUIDE are not distributed at the Show or any of the Show venues.

Your company name and basic information is automatically listed in the show program and on our website. This information can be changed and over time you will receive information as to how to log into our website to do so. 

If you would like to advertise, please contact Sarah Sibley from the Show Management Marketing Department at (954) 764-7642 or by email at ssibley@showmanagement.com.
