Beware of Unofficial Solicitors Offering Services in Conjunction with DEMA Show
Some organizations are sending solicitations to various entities in the dive industry, purporting to supply the DEMA Show Attendees List or offering a Show Guide/Directory Listing. Please be advised that the show list is proprietary and confidential, and is only accessible to DEMA Show exhibitors pursuant to a contract with the official DEMA Show registration vendor, CompuSystems. Additionally, DEMA does not charge current exhibitors for a listing at DEMAShow.com, in the electronic Show Guide & Directory nor in the DEMA Show mobile app.
Don't Let Housing Pirates Play You
Sham housing companies are actively approaching DEMA exhibitors and attendees with fraudulent offerings of hotel rooms at significant discounts. Lured by highly attractive rates, exhibitors and attendees fall prey to these imposters losing significant deposits, discovering hidden costs and upfront charges, or being bait and switched to hotel rooms they never booked. Of course, these companies are in no way affiliated with DEMA Show, or our official hotel block. They troll the internet and association websites looking for annual events and then gain access to email addresses for direct contact or to draw attendees to their websites posing as the sanctioned housing provider. Do not give them your credit card information!
DEMA does not sell or otherwise provide a contact list of DEMA Show attendees to any business or DEMA member. If you receive a solicitation to purchase a DEMA Show attendee list be advised that it is not an official or sanctioned list from DEMA, and may not be genuine or accurate.
