Exhibitor Alert: Attendee List Scam

It has come to our attention that multiple unauthorized companies are contacting exhibitors offering to sell the Potato Expo attendee list. It is Potato Expo policy to not sell the attendee list to anyone. To be clear, these companies are not in any way affiliated with the Potato Expo, do not have the attendee list and are not authorized to use our name or trademark.

Please do not attempt to purchase any Potato Expo attendee list or share any personal or billing information with these scam companies. Email show management with any questions at exhibit@potato-expo.com.

How to Register Booth Staff Using Comp Passes

Each 10’ deep by 10’ wide exhibit booth comes with two registration passes – one complimentary All-Access Pass and one complimentary Expo Pass. Booth staff registration is a completely separate process from exhibit booth registration. To see what comes with each pass, click here.

Please be aware that the complementary Expo Pass cannot be upgraded to an All-Access Pass.

To register booth staff using complimentary passes go to the Exhibitor Services Center. Login information for the Exhibitor Services Center can be found in the exhibit booth confirmation email.

Exhibitor Alert: Housing Pirates

We have been notified that multiple unauthorized housing companies, referred to as “Housing Pirates” have been cold calling and emailing our exhibitors offering discounted hotel room rates in Austin for the Potato Expo 2019. To be clear, these companies are not in any way affiliated with the Potato Expo and are not authorized to use our name or trademark.

Please do not make hotel arrangements or share any personal information through any means other than through the Official Potato Expo 2019 housing site. If you receive a call or email from anyone representing the Potato Council, please be warned that we do not reach out to you for hotel reservations.  This is a deceptive practice and is not in any way affiliated with the Potato Expo or National Potato Council.  You will not be contacted by the Official Potato Expo Housing bureau unless there is a question about your existing reservation or in response to an inquiry made by you.

All room reservations should be made directly through the official Potato Expo housing bureau by either visiting the website or by calling 877.205.2871. Room blocks have been set up at two hotels for the Potato Expo 2019 – the Hilton Austin and the Fairmont Austin.
