Exhibitor Warning - Industry Scams

Exhibitors are being targeted by companies claiming to be, or work with, The QMJ Group and The Natural Stone Show. They use existing event branding and may appear genuine. The services offered include directory listings and hotel bookings, increasingly, companies are now also claiming they can sell visitor data from the event. This is not the case. 

We advise Exhibitors to be vigilant, read the small print and inform your exhibition, marketing and finance teams about the risk of scams. If you in any doubt as to the validity of any correspondence you receive, please contact us.  

The QMJ Group does not sell visitor databases and any company claiming they hold this data is fraudulent. 

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 a significant amount of money.

The Natural Stone Show will be complemented by Hard Surfaces, the new event showcasing the latest products and trends in the fast-moving field of surface design. Hard Surfaces brings together the full production, design, specification and purchasing chain and is the only exhibition in the UK focusing exclusively on Hard Surfaces and directly related products and services. 

By co-locating, The Natural Stone Show offers an attractive proposition for architects, designers, developers, fabricators, specialist contractors, installers and KBB outlets.
