IAFE - The International Association of Fairs and Expositions

Be Aware of Scammers and False Advertisers!

We are aware that there are many scammers, poachers, and false advertisers regularly sending e-mails to IAFE members. These emails may claim to have a database of attendees, a database or directory of fairs and events listings, or even a claim to offer discounted hotel rooms at upcoming IAFE events. Do not take the bait! Any offers such as these do not come from this office. Please be especially aware of any promoting hotel rooms for the Convention. We have secured great hotels with discounted rates and only those on the Convention website listing are authorized and will have access for free shuttle service during the Convention.

Only IAFE members with valid credentials and paid membership have access to the on-line database of members (organizations and a great tool for searching for individuals) and our printed directory.

All e-mail communications from us, including the authorized promotion of services or products from our valued IAFE Associate members will come from an IAFE e-mail address known to you.
