BEWARE of the Fair Guide
Reed Exhibitions and The PGA Merchandise Show do NOT support the Fair Guide - it is NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or PGA Merchandise Show. Please be aware that you may receive solicitations for the Fair Guide from Construct Data, its publisher, which use the name of The PGA Merchandise Show - do not be fooled. Construct Data currently operates out of Slovakia (it has previously operated out of Austria and Germany).
BEWARE of the Expo-Guide
Reed Exhibitions and The PGA Merchandise Show also do NOT support the Expo-Guide - it is NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or PGA Merchandise Show. Please be aware that you may receive solicitations for the Expo-Guide from Commercial Online Manuals, its publisher, which use the name of The PGA Merchandise Show - again, do not be fooled. The Expo-Guide currently operates out of Mexico.
For further warnings on the Fair Guide and the Expo-Guide, please check out www.stopecg.org (the website was set up originally to deal with the European City Guides, but it now addresses the Fair Guide and Expo-Guide as well as several other similar matters).
And please remember - the only directories and guides affiliated with Reed Exhibitions are those published by Reed Exhibitions, including the official show directories. If you have any doubts about a directory/guide solicitation using the PGA Merchandise Show name (for example, if the solicitation requires payment made to an address in a foreign country), please contact an PGA Merchandise Show salesperson ASAP.
Beware of unofficial Daily publications
PGA Merchandise Show exhibitors are being targeted for advertisements and listings by a publication called Golf Business Daily, which is published by Source Group Publications. Neither Golf Business Daily nor Source Group Publications is affiliated with the PGA Merchandise Show in any capacity, and neither will have distribution channels at the PGA Merchandise Show: they will not be permitted on the grounds of the Orange County Convention Center, nor at PGA Show Demo Day, nor in any of the 20+ official PGA Merchandise Show hotels.
Please remember PGA Show News is the exclusive official daily publication of the PGA Merchandise Show and has exclusive distribution rights at all PGA Merchandise Show events and venues. PGA Show Newsand the official show directory (print and mobile editions) are the most effective ways to get your ad and news directly into the hands of more than 40,000 attending industry professionals.
Please contact your exhibitor sales representative if you have any further questions.
