Attendee List Scam Warning

It has been brought to our attention that there are multiple companies contacting NIGP Forum attendees and exhibitors, claiming to represent NIGP (and/or leaving out important information so that it’s ambiguous whether they represent NIGP), offering for rental and/or sale the Forum attendee list. No company is authorized to distribute or sell any lists for the event. NIGP does not rent, share or sell your contact information to third parties. Exhibitors are provided an attendee list with mailing addresses, but no emails are provided. It appears as though the vendors that are sending these advertisements are simply spamming and cold-calling the companies that appear on the Forum website. Statements from any companies claiming to have the NIGP Forum attendee list are fraudulent. Please do not engage with and/or acquire/purchase any list from any company claiming to have use of the NIGP Forum database, attendees or contact information.
