BEWARE OF POTENTIAL SCAMS
Exhibitors Beware of Unofficial Vendors and Potential Scams
Exhibitors are often contacted by various vendors looking to get their business. Be especially diligent when engaging with any vendor who is not an official contractor of IEEE PES T&D. Some exhibitors have reported receiving solicitations from these unofficial vendors. Our official vendors will NEVER send emails 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 IEEE PES or T&D, please contact T&D Exhibits at (972) 521-9902 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
