Exhibitor warnings

Housing scams

CPMA does not use housing bureaus.  Please make all hotel bookings by contacting the hotel directly using the information posted on the convention website.

The chances are quite good that you will receive an email or phone call, that offers you cut-rate housing for the CPMA Convention and Trade Show. The author’s apparent intent is to convince you that the offer is made on behalf of the CPMA Convention and Trade Show, some companies even fraudulently using the CPMA logo in their signature. These companies are NOT representatives of CPMA and its Annual Convention & Trade Show.  

International Fair Directory

The only official exhibitor listing and program for the show is produced through CPMA. Should you receive an email or invoice from International Fairs Directory requesting companies verify their show listing and submit payment, please be aware this is fraudulent communication. This guide is an independent publication and has no affiliation with CPMA and its official exhibitor listings. 

Attendee lists

Attendee list warning

Please be aware that any solicitation trying to sell you the attendee list and contacts is a scam. CPMA has no affiliation with any such companies, and does not make attendee contact information publicly available, in accordance with our privacy policy and Canada’s CASL anti-spam legislation. Some of these companies are fraudulently using CPMA’s logo, or will tell you they are in contact with show organizers.  This is untrue.

Please disregard, and as always should you have any questions about the legitimacy of any solicitations regarding the CPMA Convention and Trade Show, please contact Nicole Jeffrey at
