Vendor Scams


PACK EXPO Las Vegas/Healthcare Packaging EXPO 2017 exhibitors have reported receiving solicitations from vendors NOT affiliated with PMMI or PACK EXPO – specifically regarding attendee list sales and advertising in Packaging Industry News which is published by the Source Group.

We would like to remind all exhibitors that the attendee mailing list for PACK EXPO Las Vegas/Healthcare Packaging EXPO is available for rent through the official vendor, Experient, to all exhibitors. The order form can be accessed here. Any solicitation claiming to have the email list of PACK EXPO/Healthcare Packaging EXPO attendees is fraudulent, as PMMI does not sell or rent the attendee email list.

PMMI is in receipt of reports from exhibitors stating that representatives from the Source Group were walking the aisles at the 2017 event attempting to sell advertising slots for the 2018 edition of Packaging Industry News, and were misleading exhibitors to believe this was the official Show Daily for PACK EXPO International/Healthcare Packaging EXPO 2018. Please note that PMMI has NO affiliation with the Source Group and their publications are strictly prohibited from being handed out on the premises of McCormick Place during our show, as well as inside all hotels within our housing block. To advertise in the official Show Daily, please contact Mary Thorne at [email protected] or by phone at 610-647-8585.

We urge all exhibitors to be especially diligent when engaging with any vendor who is not an official contractor of PACK EXPO. Please note that PMMI nor any of our vendors will never email from a non-business account such as gmail, yahoo, outlook, etc.

If you receive a solicitation and are unsure of the vendor’s affiliation with PMMI or PACK EXPO/Healthcare Packaging EXPO, please contact the PMMI Show Department at 571.612.3200 or [email protected].
