BEWARE of the Fair Guide

Reed Exhibitions and National Hardware Show do NOT support the Fair Guide -- it is NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or National Hardware Show. Please be aware that you may receive solicitations for the Fair Guide from Construct Data, its publisher, which use the name of National Hardware Show – do not be fooled. Construct Data currently operates out of Slovakia (it has previously operated out of Austria and Germany).

BEWARE of the Expo-Guide

Reed Exhibitions and National Hardware Show also do NOT support the Expo-Guide -- it is NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or National Hardware Show. Please be aware that you may receive solicitations for the Expo-Guide from Commercial Online Manuals, its publisher, which use the name of National Hardware Show – again, do not be fooled. The Expo-Guide currently operates out of Mexico.

For further warnings on the Fair Guide and the Expo-Guide, please check out www.stopecg.org (the website was set up originally to deal with the European City Guides, but it now addresses the Fair Guide and Expo-Guide as well as several other similar matters).

And please remember – the only directories and guides affiliated with Reed Exhibitions are those published by Reed Exhibitions, including the official show directories. If you have any doubts about a directory/guide solicitation using National Hardware Show name (for example, if the solicitation requires payment made to an address in a foreign country), please contact an National Hardware Show salesperson ASAP.

BEWARE of Attendee List Solicitations

Please be aware that online list sellers soliciting the National Hardware Show exhibitors and claiming to have the National Hardware Show attendee lists for sale are NOT affiliated with, or endorsed by, Reed Exhibitions or the National Hardware Show. The National Hardware Show does not make its exhibitor or attendee contact lists available to any third party. You should note that the online sellers generally acknowledge in their solicitation that their purported attendee list does not come from Reed Exhibitions or the National Hardware Show; they claim to have assembled their list by phoning and emailing contacts from their own database.

If you have any doubts about any communications or mailing list solicitations using the National Hardware Show name, please contact a National Hardware Show salesperson immediately.

WARNING! Beware of Unauthorized Contacts From Companies Offering to Book Your Hotel Rooms

Reed Exhibitions has received numerous reports that several companies are fraudulently posing as authorized travel vendors for the National Hardware Show, and these companies may attempt to contact you and offer housing accommodations for the show. Reed Exhibitions urges you to BEWARE of these types of companies. These companies, and ones like them, are not endorsed by, or affiliated with, Reed Exhibitions or the show, and the services purported to be offered are likely fraudulent. It is important to note the information these companies provide is often completely untrue. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that Connections Housing is the ONLY official housing company associated with the National Hardware Show.
