There has been an increase in spam communications from fraudulent vendors claiming to work for NACUBO and offer hotel/travel rates and attendee lists. If you receive any communications regarding hotel, travel, or attendee lists from any company other than NACUBO, it is not a trusted NACUBO vendor and should be disregarded. 

Confirmation Letter
Upon acceptance of your Application/Contract and payment, exhibiting companies will receive a confirmation letter, via e-mail, with their booth assignment. All other confirmation material, including the decorator service kit will be accessible through a password protected website, Exhibitor and Sponosor Service Center (ESC). The ESC is designed to provide you with all the information you need to check your booth location, review your account status, pay your outstanding booth balance, update your company profile, etc. If you are hosting a prize drawing in your booth, don't forget to enter it on the In-Booth Raffle Prize Drawing boards at the front of the hall. This alerts attendees that you are giving away a great prize and to visit your booth to enter. We ask that your trinket be limited to $20 per item and your raffle item be limited to no more than $500. Take time to review exhibitor information provided there.
