Attendee List Sales Scam Warning 

It has come to APEX’s attention that “companies” are contacting some APEX members and meeting attendees to offer them sale of the APEX Annual Expo attendee mailing list. This, unfortunately, has become a more common occurrence for association annual meetings and trade shows in recent years. Software programs can “crawl’ association websites to harvest usable email addresses, which scammers then contact. 

PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM. 

APEX does not sell its meeting registration lists, and APEX does not authorize any third party to distribute or sell annual meeting attendee lists or lists related to any APEX event. 

APEX cannot be held responsible for any interaction or sale with these fraudulent company(s). APEX takes this matter very seriously and will do whatever possible to protect APEX attendees, partners, and exhibitors. 

If you are contacted by a company claiming to have access to an APEX attendee list, do not respond to their message and do not “unsubscribe” to additional messages, as this just informs the sender that your email address is active, which will usually result in additional unwanted email. Please forward a copy of the message to [email protected] 

If you have any questions, please contact APEX at [email protected]
