It has come to our attention that some of our delegates/exhibitors have been approached by a company called Exhibition Housing Services which looks like it may be aligned to Best Practice Birmingham.

Please note that this is a fraud and is nothing to do with the Best Practice Birmingham or CloserStill Media.

Unfortunately this entity has been operating in this manner for years and the authorities do not seem to be able to deal with them.

Please DO NOT book rooms or complete and/or return any paperwork to this company as you will then be legally bound to their terms and conditions
