Exhibitor Scam Warning
AFBF & IDEAg have been notified of several scams regarding attendee lists and hotel reservations. The IDEAg Group does not work with any company claiming to have the attendee lists, and the only company who is authorized to book housing is Experient.
If you receive a communication from anyone other than show management, please disregard! These companies do not have a list of our attendees, their contact information or hotel information, and will not be able to provide you with a service once they have your money.
Housing and registration will open in October, and exhibitors will be notified once housing becomes available.
We at AFBF & IDEAg Group are always looking to protect our customers. Please be alert and if you have any questions about the validity of a communication you've received, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
