Exhibitor Alert


You may recall that in previous years WBENC made you aware of unauthorized parties contacting National Conference attendees, sponsors and exhibitors about securing hotel rooms for our event. We advised you to be on guard for these “pirates” or “poachers” (meeting industry terminology) who are relentless and might contact you with bogus discounts for hotel rooms or room blocks. Please stay on alert for these inquiries by unauthorized entities with regard to our 2023 conference in Nashville, TN, as well.

However, we also want to advise you that companies claiming to offer exhibitor services (such as inclusion in an exhibitor directory) have contacted some of our exhibitors from 2022 about the 2023 Conference requesting that they review, verify, and confirm pre-registered data for an Exhibitor Directory for Fairs and Exhibitions.

This request is not associated with WBENC, even though the communication references both WBENC and the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council in Washington, D.C. Do not respond to any communication requesting you verify exhibitor registration or any personal/company information.

WBENC will not solicit information to make hotel reservations or request that you take any other action related to the upcoming 2023 National Conference in Nashville unless the message comes directly from WBENC, Map Your Show, Maritz, Imagen or our exhibit services provider, Hargrove, Inc., or appears on the official conference website – www.wbenc.org/conference.
