Beware of Imposters and Unofficial Vendors

In the months leading up to the AWFS®Fair, sometimes exhibiting companies are contacted by individuals that claim to represent AWFS®Fair – often selling advertising in fake show directories or offering “attendee lists” for sale. Don’t be tricked! Here’s what you should look for:

  • Emails from AWFS®Fair will come from the domain “@awfs.org” – if someone contacts you from an unfamiliar domain, please check it against our list of approved service providers (when available – found in the exhibitor service kit) or forward the email to kim@awfs.org to verify the source.
  • There is only one official show daily for AWFS®Fair  and it will be distributed inside the convention center. Woodworking Journal is NOT affiliated with AWFS®Fair. Our contracted hotels will not be distributing the show directory and or any magazines or journals at there hotel.
  • AWFS®Fair does not share attendee contact information so our registration lists cannot be purchased. As such, beware of any company that promises to sell you an attendee list.

Our team is here to help you make the most of your time and investment at the AWFS®Fair. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please contact us at awfssales@awfs.org and we would be happy to assist you.
