Attendee List Scam email

Please be advised that there is an email scam being circulated offering a Grow Up and Expo 2018 – Attendee List. Typically this will come from an email address such as @b2bshows-list.org, @attendees-list.org or a similar domain name. These are scams and are NOT related to Grow Up or its affiliates in any way. The use of our name has been made without our knowledge or authorization. These lists are inaccurate and have not been obtained from Grow Up Conference and Expo. We urge you to NOT RESPOND OR PURCHASE anything from them.

Grow Up Conference and Expo respects the rights and privacy of our attendees and does not sell or provide our delegate or attendee list to anyone. Exhibitor lists are available on the Exhibitor List page, but we do not provide a delegate list to anyone other than our own applications.
