How To Expertly Avoid Scam Event Websites

April 12, 2023

There has been an increasing number of scams, especially on event websites. We recently witnessed it ourselves as one of our clients was supposed to have hosted their event at our Central London conference venues. We want to reduce the likelihood of it happening again to attendees.  Here are the steps to help you to be more aware of event websites: 

1. Confirm your Event Source  

Before clicking on the register button, check your source. Sometimes events will look so real by how they are presented. Once the organiser takes your money for registration, you will not hear from them again as the event did not exist in the first place. You should directly ring the conference venue to prevent this from happening to see if the event organiser has paid them. 

2. Double and Triple Inspect the Event Flyer 

Another powerful sign of seeing if the event is a scam or not is the event flyer. While it is now easy to create professional-looking flyers and posters on graphic design websites like Visme and Canva, it is still distinctive as scammers will not put in the effort and money to create flawless flyers. 

3. Check the Registration Procedure  

An events registration process is serious because businesses’ payment processes have a lot of security in place with transactions. Scammers do not offer you a safety net as they want it to be a quick process.
