EXHIBITOR RESOURCES

The Exhibitor Resource section is your one stop shop for all of the forms, information and links you need to prepare for the event. We encourage you to visit the section often as new forms and information is added frequently.

* Exhibitor Alert *

Please be careful if you are contacted by a third-party vendor posing or leading you to believe that the work on behalf of NFMT. Some that use this tactic would be contacting you for hotel reservations or attendee list rentals.

Housing: Visit Baltimore is the office housing bureau for NFMT and reservations need to be made through the NFMT housing site. The NFMT housing bureau will NOT call you to make a reservation. We have been told that a few exhibitors have been contacted by a Russel Jones (I don't have the phone number for Russel) and a Mike Anderson, from Convention Experts (1.702.509.7473).Russel and/or Mike do NOT work on behalf of NFMT or the NFMT housing bureau.

List Rentals: NFMT does NOT rent or sell the registrant lists. Any exhibitors that are paid in full will receive the registrant list with mailing information only (no phone or Email) within 14 days post-event. The E-mails will use the NFMT name but do NOT fall for this. Please forward the email to nfmt@rocexhibitions.com so we can send a cease-and-desist notice and then block that email address. Click here to see examples of scam emails.

If you are contacted by a company and you want to check the legitimacy of any communication you receive, please contact nfmt@rocexhibitions.com.
