NFBA Attendee List Reminder
Some NFBA exhibitors have been receiving communications from companies soliciting the NFBA attendee list. Please note that these companies are posing as official representatives of the NFBA Frame Building Expo to sell unofficial attendee data lists. These companies are unrelenting and are known to constantly change their company and domain names, but they have no affiliation with the NFBA, and we cannot recommend purchasing a list through them. Exhibitors are advised to beware of anyone soliciting on behalf of the NFBA. Please contact us at NFBA@heiexpo.com with questions
