The Ottawa Valley Farm Show DOES NOT SHARE exhibitor contact information!

It has been brought to our attention that outside scammer companies have been contacting our exhibitors, asking for updated information, offering visitor lists, or in some cases, demanding payment. These scammers use the guise of confirming hotel bookings, or booking exhibitor space, and others. We want to emphasize that, the Ottawa Valley Farm Show has no connection to these activities, does not endorse them, and has not approved this solicitation in any way. If you receive an unsolicited email from an address other than @ottawafarmshow.com, we recommend you not respond. If you have any concerns please let us know.
