Avoid Event Scams

Multiple companies have been contacting Automate attendees, exhibitors, and Association for Advancing Automation (A3) members claiming to sell/rent an Automate attendee list. A3 does not rent, share, or sell your email or physical address to any third parties. Read the A3 privacy policy.

Even if their email signature includes the Automate logo/website/name, these companies have no association with A3.

Since their company name and “From” email address frequently change, it makes it difficult for A3 to stop their actions.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience that these spammers cause you — we get these emails too:  

Examples of fraudulent emails received at A3

Automate has partnered with OnPeak for hotel accommodations in 2019. Please ensure when booking accommodations, you are working with OnPeak, and that any unsolicited calls received are not part of a scam. View hotel information.

We are working exclusively with GES as our appointed contractor and Expo Logic for our registration/lead retrieval needs. If you are contacted by any company that is not GES or Expo Logic, please disregard their services. Some exhibitors have reported that callers have threatened to cancel their booth space if they do not comply. Please be assured that your booth space is safely being held unless you are contacted directly by a staff member of A3.

Automate does not work with any third party to sell advertising or sponsorships. If you are interested in advertising in the Automate Show Guide, or participating in any other sponsorship opportunity, please contact our Director of Sales, James Hamilton

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