Not sure whether it's legit?

As an exhibitor, you may be solicited by one or more of the companies below. We've provided some of the most common non-official solicitations to equip you before you purchase. Always look for the Official Vendor logo when purchasing products and/or services for Catersource + The Special Event, and when in doubt, please email us and we'll be happy to verify if the company you're purchasing from is an official vendor of the show.

Purchasing the Pre-Registration Attendee List

It has come to our attention that several agencies are contacting CS +TSE exhibitors claiming to have the pre-registered attendee list available for purchase and are representing themselves as in cooperation with show management and official CS +TSE partners. Please note: We do NOT sell, give or provide our attendee data, nor do we make it available through any official partner. Anyone who solicits you regarding an attendee list rental/purchase is not a part of the event team and is most likely a scammer – as nobody outside of CS + TSE has the list. Please disregard any solicitations you may receive regarding attendee list rentals/purchases. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by these solicitations.


Several housing agencies have presented themselves as hotel booking agencies for CS + TSE, contacting exhibitors and attendees to make hotel reservations using their services. onPeakis the only official housing agent for Catersource and The Special Event. No other housing company or travel agency is authorized to place hotel reservations on behalf of Catersource and The Special Event.

Reservations made through any other agency cannot be guaranteed and may result in additional charges, incorrect hotel placement, or inflated room rates. Please use the onPeak reservation link to book your hotel or reach out to the onPeak Customer Contact Center to avoid any confusion or additional charges. 1- (800) 388-8107 between 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM, Monday - Friday Central Time USA.
