Beware Of Fraudulent Phone Calls And Emails

The exhibition industry is experiencing pervasive issues with both fraudulent phone calls and emails. We would like to remind you to be extra vigilant with your personal and company information. RETC does not share nor sell our member, attendee, or exhibitor information. Please read more about RETC Privacy Policy.

As an exhibitor, you may receive emails and phone calls from various companies soliciting housing, attendee lists, etc. These companies are NOT affiliated with the SME/RETC and are NOT authorized by SME/RETC to contact exhibitors. Do not reply to these requests!

Many of these companies retrieve your public information from the interactive floor plan and may even contact the main company number to obtain your name and direct line or email. Your personal contact information is never posted online by SME/RETC and is only shared with the service providers authorized by SME/RETC.

The companies “pirating” these bogus “services” threaten the conference industry as they disrupt the process and cause confusion with exhibitors. They aim to scam exhibitors and attendees and have them purchase fraudulent lists or book rooms that may never be reserved. 

All official SME/RETC correspondence will be sent directly from SME/RETC via an email newsletter, direct email, direct mail, or a phone call. If any correspondence is received from an unsolicited source, please do not respond to any of their inquiries.

Those who opt for alternatives to SME/RETC negotiated rates may find themselves at risk. SME/RETC reminds attendees/exhibitors that we have no affiliation with any of these hotel room brokers.



  • Do not provide your personal or financial information over the phone or via email
  • Resist the pressure to act immediately
  • Canada’s anti-spam legislation (CASL) came into effect July 1, 2014. It is in place to protect Canadians while ensuring that businesses can continue to compete in the global marketplace. For more information please visit
  • Please refer to the NAT website and, when in doubt, contact us directly to verify you are working with one of our show partners.
  • You can report this spam to the Federal Trade Commission here: On that page, click “Something Else” then fill in the form with the details of the fraudulent email/phone call.
