Scam Warning!
HOUSING SERVICE SCAM
Exhibitors have reported calls from companies claiming to be the housing service for GAOS.
Please beware! If you provide your credit card information to any of these unauthorized vendors, your card may be charged but you may not have a reservation when you arrive in Harrisburg, PA.
The NRA is NOT utilizing the services of any housing or reservations vendor for the Great American Outdoor Show.
FRAUDULENT ATTENDEE LISTS
Please be beware of companies who contact you offering to sell event attendee lists. They DO NOT have these lists nor can they make these lists available. Our attendee database is confidential and is not sold or made available to anyone.
Should you receive unsolicited marketing from a company offering to sell these lists, do not respond. The NRA is in no way associated with these companies.
