We’ve got some summer reading, some CHA news, and some news about your favorite designers this week on noteworthy!
CHA Attendees: The Craft & Hobby Association is warning attendees about two scams targeting convention attendees.
One is a supposed online show directory from Construct Data Verlag AG of Austria, Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV of Mexico and similar companies that is targeting exhibitors. Signing and returning the form for an entry in the online directory actually enters companies into an expensive three year contract that automatically renews.
The second scam is that several companies have been approaching CHA attendees offering to book hotel rooms at CHA at low rates, and then have not booked rooms and kept deposits that were placed with them. Par Avion is the only travel vendor associated with CHA that can book rooms at official CHA convention rates.
