Avoid Email Scammers

Don’t Be Fooled!

Unfortunately, emails are circulating that offer to sell attendee lists for many of DBIA’s conferences. These emails are sent by scammers impersonating DBIA. DBIA does not sell its exhibitor or attendee lists, and no third-party is authorized to distribute or sell any lists related to our events.

Statements claiming to offer our attendee lists are fraudulent. Conference exhibitors will only obtain lists directly from DBIA Conferences staff, based on their contracted language.

If you receive emails that claim to sell DBIA conference attendee lists, do not engage with the sender and mark the message as junk/spam immediately.
