Attendee Scam Warning

The size and reputation of WBENC’s signature national events have unfortunately made us (and you) a target of a variety of scams. Please be aware of the items below and check with us if you have any questions about emails you receive that claim to be representing WBENC.

Multiple companies have been contacting members of the WBENC network and event attendees claiming to sell or rent event attendee lists. WBENC does not rent, share, or sell our attendee lists or email addresses to third parties. Read our privacy policy.

These companies aren’t associated with WBENC and aren’t authorized to use our name or trademark.

WBENC will also not solicit information to make hotel reservations or request that you take any other action related to the events unless the message comes directly from WBENC (email address ending in @wbenc.org) or our event vendors: Trattativa Meetings & Event Management, Stovell Marketing and Public Relations, Inc. (SMPR), Experient, and Hargrove, Inc.

Do not respond to any communication requesting you verify registration or any personal/company information.

If you are ever unsure about an inquiry please contact  wbenccustsvc@wbenc.org.
