How can I protect my company from scams related to the show?

  • PHCC does not, and never has, provided attendee information to anyone other than exhibitors and sponsors of the show. Any company that offers to sell you PHCC’s’s attendee list is a scammer. They will take your money and leave you with a worthless list.
  • PHCC does not work with any third-party travel agency. We encourage you to book your room in hotels where PHCC is holding a room block.
