Purchasing a booth for CLEAN GULF does not automatically register your booth personnel. We encourage you to pre-register all staff in order to save time when you arrive onsite! Your exhibit space comes with unlimited booth personnel and a deep discount for upgrading to a full conference pass. We encourage you to register at least one member of your staff with a full conference pass to get access to the conference sessions. This is where buyers will be hanging out during conference hours and is a great opportunity to network!
Unfortunately, exhibitors are periodically contacted by non-official contractors to offer them “better deals” on items and services at the CLEAN GULF Conference & Exhibition. Please know that CLEAN GULF only contracts with and endorses the Official Service Contractors listed below.

EXHIBITOR SCAM WARNINGS
Beware of marketing offers from Construct Data (The Fair Guide) and similar companies – the offers look official and the invoices appear legitimate, but they are not. Construct Data Verlag AG of Austria, Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV of Mexico and similar companies target U.S. tradeshow exhibitors. They offer advertising space on The Fair Guide and/or Expo Guide websites, using a form which resembles an organizer’s free catalog listing service, inviting exhibitors to sign and return the form for an entry in an on-line directory. The companies typically make it appear they received your information from CG and that there is a connection between their “Guide” and CG. However, exhibitors who sign and return the form are then bound to a non-terminable agreement at significant cost for a period of at least three years and automatically renewing thereafter at the same cost, unless canceled by registered letter within the appropriate period.
