The exhibition industry is experiencing pervasive issues with both fraudulent phone calls and emails. We would like to remind you to be extra vigilant with your personal and company information. PDAC does not share nor sell our member, attendee, or exhibitor information. Please read more about PDAC Privacy Policy here. 

These are two common ways you may be contacted:

Attendee List Scam
A company may contact you under false pretenses and offer to sell you an attendee or exhibitor list. Please note that PDAC does not share nor sell our member, attendee, or exhibitor information. As an exhibitor, the only way to obtain this information is by collecting the data yourself as you talk to attendees who stop by your booth. You may collect this information manually (e.g. business cards) or rent a badge scanner from CONEXSYS Lead Retrieval.

Hotel Booking Scam
You may be offered hotel reservation assistance and/or discounted hotel rates. Please note that PDAC hotels nor agents will not contact you directly to book your stay. You must contact your hotel of choice directly. Please see our Hotels page for hotel contact information. PDAC does NOT use 3rd party housing bureaus.

-Do not provide your personal or financial information over the phone or via email
-Resist the pressure to act immediately
-Canada's anti-spam legislation (CASL) came into effect July 1, 2014. It is in place to protect Canadians while ensuring that businesses can continue to compete in the global marketplace. For more information please visit
-Please refer to the PDAC Convention Official Service Providers webpage and, when in doubt, feel free to contact us directly to verify you are working with one of our show partners
