BEWARE of Travel Scams

JIS does NOT have an official travel booking/accommodations partner.

Don't be fooled by offers from other parties using the JIS name – they are NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or JIS Shows. Remember, if the offer seems too good to be true, it probably is. At the very least, before you book your travel, please check the prospective vendor's rating at www.bbb.org.
