SCAM ALERT: Please Read

We have been alerted that unauthorized housing companies have been contacting exhibitors offering discount rates at hotels - these emails are scams and these companies are not affiliated with the Greater Indianapolis Garage Sale & Marketplace or Bonnier LLC in any capacity.

As an exhibitor, you may be solicited by one or more fraudulent companies seeking your information or money. We work with approved vendors only and we do not sell our attendee lists.

If you are contacted by a company directly and in doubt, please email and we'll be happy to verify if the company is an official vendor of the event.
