Spam emails from Go Displays

It has come to our attention that spam emails are being sent to exhibitors by a company in Peterborough called Go Displays using the Midland Model Expo 2015 title implying that they have an official connection with the show (example below).

At the bottom of the email there is a link "Why am I receiving this?" which opens the following screen in your browser, again misleadingly implying a formal connection with Midland Expo 2015.

Please be aware that this company has no connection whatsoever with IPMS Birmingham, the organisers of Midland Expo 2015, neither have they been given permission to use the title of the show nor any variation of it.

A "Cease and desist" letter will be going out to the Company Secretary of Go Displays in the next week, meanwhile exhibiting Branch Secretaries and SIG Leaders  please delete any emails you receive from this company.

Midland Expo 2015 to be dedicated to the memory of Bill Nicholls

Following the sad news of the death of one of IPMS Birmingham's longest seving members, Bill Nicholls, it has been decided to dedicate this year's show to his memory.

Bill was always a staunch supporter of both IPMS Birmingham and the society at a national level. In recent years he had been in failing health and passed away on Wednesday 20th May.
