The IDEAg Group has been notified of several scams regarding attendee lists and hotel reservations. The IDEAg Group does not work with any company claiming to have the attendee lists or hotel reservations for our shows. Should you receive a communication from anyone other than show management, please disregard! These companies do not have a list of our attendees, their contact information, or housing, and will not be able to provide you with a service once they have your money.
