We have recently been made aware of a fraudulent hotel booking company who are contacting exhibitors and claiming to be either a preferred supplier or, in some cases, working for the show/exhibition itself.

Please be wary of any other accommodation companies making claims to be affiliated to Routes Events or purporting to be our official hotel provider. In case of doubt, please contact a member of the Registration Team on
