Notice to Exhibitors Regarding Non-Official Contractors

The companies listed above have been appointed as the only Official Contractors providing the stated services for this event. Show Management carefully considers the selection of Official Contractors based on quality of service, variety of products, price, and reputation. Since these contractors frequently work on more than one show with us, they value the business of our customers and provide quality products and services. Some companies may misrepresent themselves as being an official contractor so PLEASE be sure to check the list in the exhibitor manual or give us a call.

Some things to watch for if you are considering the services of a non-official contractor are hidden charges for material handling, labor, and shipping that you might not pay otherwise (for example on carpet rental), control over delivery time, availability during move-in and leverage if something goes wrong.

Also be advised that non-official contractors will need to abide by the Exhibitor Appointed Contractor procedures, provide insurance certificates, etc. in order to gain access to the Show Floor.

Exhibitor Alerts


Reed Exhibitions and PGA MERCHANDISE SHOW also do NOT support the Expo-Guide — it is NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or the 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 (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 SHOWname (for example, if the solicitation requires payment made to an address in a foreign country), please contact a PGA MERCHANDISE SHOW salesperson ASAP.
