ATTENDEE LIST SCAM WARNING
A common occurrence that can come with large industry conferences and trade shows in recent years, is the possibility that outside companies may contact attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors, claiming to offer our attendee lists. Please be advised, that no company has our permission to distribute or sell any email lists of attendees for our events. How did they get your email address? Software programs can crawl websites in search of email addresses that are listed on them (identifiable by the “@” sign).
If you receive an email offering to sell you a list of conference attendees, DO NOT respond to it. By responding–even with a request to unsubscribe–you confirm that your email address is a valid one, which may increase the likelihood that you’ll be contacted again.
The American Public Gardens Association is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience at Association events. We seek to provide a conference environment in which diverse attendees learn, network, and enjoy the company of other attendees in a professional environment. The Association does not tolerate harassment in any form. Discriminatory language, behavior, or imagery that renders discomfort in others is not appropriate. Those who violate these standards risk being immediately barred from further event participation or referred to appropriate authorities.
EXPECTATIONS FOR COMMUNICATION
The following rules outline, at a high level, what we expect when you represent the Association in an official capacity or when you will communicate to our Association membership: keep it professional, keep it respectful, and keep it excellent. View our full policy and guidelines here.
