Scam List Rental Offers

We have been made aware of several US-based list rental companies offering visitor data from The Emergency Services Show. We NEVER sell or rent our data and these are scam sites. Please check our privacy policy for further clarification.

Please be aware of emails with the following suffixes:

or any other unfamiliar source, please note that these businesses are not affiliated with Broden Media Limited, Nineteen Group or The Emergency Services Show. The lists offered are inaccurate and not our data. We urge readers, exhibitors and visitors to be cautious and ask you to contact us if you receive this type of email from unfamiliar sources.

Exhibitor Scam Warning

Exhibitors may be targeted by companies claiming to be, or work with us. They may use our event branding and appear genuine.  

Organisations such as Event Fair, Data Verlag, Expo Guide (Mexico) and International Fairs Directory (Portugal) are targeting exhibitors with their misleading directory services. Unsuspecting exhibitors who sign and return the form are then contracted into a three-year, non-retractable agreement, which could cost you a significant amount of money.

It is, however, not just directories. We have been informed that exhibitors have also been targeted by alleged hotel companies. It is therefore extremely important that you remain vigilant when signing documents seemingly related to The Emergency Services Show.

If you fall victim to this scam:

Our advice is to IGNORE THEM COMPLETELY, and not communicate with them in any way. Writing letters simply confirms that you exist and are available at the address/email address/number they have for you, and therefore payment can be pursued.

1) Report it to your local Trading Standards 
3) DO NOT COMMUNICATE WITH THE SCAMMERS even when they threaten legal action
4) Optional: Complain to the receiving bank that their client Expo Guide (or equivalent), is obtaining money by deception.

These organisations have also been known to use debt recovery agencies, the same advice stands for these agencies.

In addition, we have recently been made aware of a bogus list-rental company, PlanetEmailingList, from the USA purporting to hold our visitor data for sale. This is not case, we DO NOT sell vistor data for the Show. Please delete their emails or report as spam.
