Beware of scams targeting exhibitors

There are several fake companies which target exhibitors across all kinds of trade shows. If you are exhibiting at PLASA Focus Leeds, or any of our other events, and have been contacted by a third party that you are unsure of, please check our Exhibitor Manual which you will find in your E-zone. The Exhibitor Manual contains a page listing all of our official suppliers. So, if you are contacted by company that does not feature on this list, ignore them.

Companies to ignore include:

  • Event Fair
  • FairGuide.com
  • Construct Data Verlag,
  • Expo Guide
  • International Fairs Directory

Please read this article by the Association of Event Organisers which discusses this issue further.

  • It’s been a great show due to the family feel which the show is known for. It’s just the right size and the fact it’s spread over two halls makes it feel more spacious and relaxed.
