AFS Exhibitors, Sponsors, and Attendees:

We wanted to make you aware of various scams targeting exhibitors and attendees at conferences.

  • AFS does not furnish attendee lists to solicitors for re-sale and will never allow third-party vendors access to your information. Any solicitations received via email to purchase an attendee list are fraudulent. If you receive any solicitations related to the sale or distribution of information pertaining to our registrants, please notify us.
  • For your privacy and protection, AFS also wants you to be aware that fake websites pretending to be the AFS registration website, AV, booth equipment rental, and host hotels have surfaced this year. These website operators are attempting to get your personal information and money for registration and housing.
  • The official hotels for the AFS Grand Rapids meeting are the Amway Grand, Holiday Inn, Courtyard, and Hyatt Place. Please avoid scams and book directly with the host hotels.
  • The official and only website for the AFS Annual Meeting is
  • The official registration provider for AFS is XCD. If you need assistance with your registration, please contact [email protected].
  • The official trade show decorator is Art Craft.
  • The official AV provider is CMI.

Thank you,

AFS Meetings Team
