Scams Targeting GridTECH Connect Forum Attendees and Sponsors

Throughout the years, GridTECH Connect Forum has been a target of groups trying to offer all types of services from fictitious hotel arrangements to fraudulent lead generation services.

Always remain vigilant in relation to any change of beneficiary requests when processing payments to us. Bad actors frequently target small businesses and use a variety of tactics, including typosquatting, in an attempt to appear more convincing.  If you ever have any questions related to payment, changes in instructions from Clarion, or anything else, please always give us a call prior to issuing payment.

If you come in contact with any scam, you can report this incident at

GridTECH Connect Forum Attendee List Rules

GridTECH Connect Forum does not sell, rent, or distribute any database lists, nor do we disclose email addresses. Statements claiming to offer these attendee lists are fraudulent.

Approved GridTECH Connect Forum Housing Vendors

All GridTECH Connect Forum approved housing vendors will be clearly noted on the GridTECH Connect Forum event website. Any solicitation coming from housing companies for room reservations at our hotels is a scam. Please delete the email immediately and do not interact with the sender. Note that Connection Housing is the housing vendor for GridTECH Connect Forum. 

Unauthorized Service Providers

As an sponsor, you may be contacted by unauthorized service providers for audiovisual, carpet, exhibitor directory listing, etc. — who claim to be affiliated with GridTECH Connect Forum. These solicitations may appear to provide cost savings; however, the rates listed could be misleading and, in some cases, the vendor may not be a credible supplier. The vendor for all booth services is the expo group.
