BEWARE of the Fair Guide
Reed Exhibitions and the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show do NOT support the Fair Guide -- it is NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show. Please be aware that you may receive solicitations for the Fair Guide from Construct Data, its publisher, which use the name of the Florida Restaurant & Lodging 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 Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show also do NOT support the Expo-Guide -- it is NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or the Florida Restaurant & Lodging 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 Florida Restaurant & Lodging 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 Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show name (for example, if the solicitation requires payment made to an address in a foreign country), please contact a Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show salesperson ASAP.
