What is Advanced Textiles Expo and ATA doing to stop these scammers?
1. Unfortunately, little can be done to stop these people. Tradeshows across the world deal with these and unfortunately don’t have a good avenue to stop these people.
2. ATA sends ‘Cease and Desist” letters via email to all email addresses that are involved in this scam.
3. We never provide lists to any entity.
4. We ask that those emails are forwarded to an ATA staff member so we can have a cease and desist letter sent.
A: Attendees constantly point at complementary industries as being an area for potential growth for their businesses. This co-location will open opportunities for attendees to increase their business in textiles used for both internal and external textiles applications. Advanced Textiles Expo features specialty, advanced and industrial textile solutions with the largest contingency of attendees and exhibitors representing exterior sun protection. Messe Stuttgart’s Sun Shading Expo will deliver a show and education focused on the internal sun protection marketplace, in part, as they do through their R+T Trade Shows in Germany, China and Turkey. R+T produces the leading world trade fair for roller shutters, doors/gates and sun protection systems.
These two events will bring together the textiles industry’s leading companies, latest innovations in equipment and textiles and valuable education, highlighting ways textile companies can provide high quality solutions for commercial businesses and consumers. Co-locating shows will provide unprecedented value in the opportunity to connect with customers, suppliers, end-product manufacturers and industry counterparts.
