Automate Vendors

It has been brought to our attention that third party housing groups, mail houses, and other service companies have been contacting our exhibitors trying to sell their services for the show.

We are working exclusively with GES as our appointed contractor and Expo Logic for our registration/lead retrieval needs. We do not work with any convention housing companies nor do we sell our attendee or exhibitor information to mail houses or conference networks.

If you are contacted by any company that is not GES or Expo Logic, please disregard their services. Some exhibitors have reported that callers has threatened to cancel their booth space if they do not comply. Please be sure that your booth space is safely being held unless you are contacted directly by a staff member of A3.
