  • Exhibitor Alerts!!

    BEWARE of the Restaurant Daily News and Oser Communications 
    Urban Expositions and the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show do NOT support the Restaurant Daily News produced by Oser Communications -- it is NOT affiliated with Urban Expositions or FRLS.  Please be aware that you may receive solicitations for the Restaurant Daily News from Oser Communications, its publisher, which may use the name of the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show, and may tell you that they are authorized to distribute their magazine at the event -- do not be fooled.  The only official event publications are produced by Urban Expositions and the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show.  For high impact advertising, and guaranteed access to the show attendees, please contact gcelentano@urban-expo.com

    BEWARE of Third Party Lead Retrieval Systems
    Exhibitors, beware of third party lead retrieval companies soliciting devices with the assumption they work at all or most shows.  The Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show official registration providers design their systems to work in accordance with conditions that protect information, ensure data integrity, and are NOT aligned with outside providers systems.  Any challenges with use of these systems should be directed to the seller of these systems. 

    Beware of Travel Scams
    The Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show, in partnership with Connections Housing, are committed to providing you with the best travel deals around. Connections Housing is the official travel provider for the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show.  Don't be fooled by offers from other parties using the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show name - they are NOT affiliated with Urban Expositions or the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show. Remember, if the offer seems too good to be true, it probably is. At the very least, prior to booking with a party other than Connections Housing, please check the prospective vendor's rating at www.bbb.org

    BEWARE of the Fair Guide
    Urban Expositions and the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show do NOT support the Fair Guide -- it is NOT affiliated with Urban Expositions 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
    Urban Expositions and the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show also do NOT support the Expo-Guide -- it is NOT affiliated with Urban Expositions 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 Urban Expositions are those published by Urban Expositions, 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.
