Exclamation Be Careful ! Singapore Fashion Expo (14-16 June 2013)

I was informed that there is going to be an event held at Singapore Expo called "Singapore Fashion Expo" from 14-16th June 2013. Some of the vendors who know me personally asked me regarding this event.
I have done a check on this event as well as the organiser. In the Singapore Expo official website, it is listed that there is an event during this weekend. I have checked on the event organiser name and found out that the company is called Ideal Solution Pte Ltd
For those vendors who remember, this event company was having a few issues with the vendors whereby the person in charge claims that he had a few events but at the end of the day, some of the events were cancelled last minute. Some of the events like the Takashimaya did not even exist in the first place. If I'm not mistaken, there were some vendors who had to wait for a long time to get their refund back from the organiser.
I happen to get to know that the same company is organising this event at Singapore Expo next month. Apparently, they send people to give out brochures to some vendors during this weekend at Expo. The contact person for this event is by the name of Cabin. I have cross checked the phone number of this person and realise that this number is the same number for 2 other person who are called Jason and Ices. Some of you vendors might find the name familiar. I am just wondering, why would a person have to change his name so many times ?
Finally, I need to state that I have nothing against this organiser cos this website is a platform for all info to be shared especially to all participating vendors. In fact, I have not met the organiser before. For those vendors who are considering to participate in this event, please be very careful. In anyway, if you do proceed, I do wish you the best of luck in sales for the weekend.

Hi Dear all,

Regards on this organizer which I have taken several times event space with him, so far there is no problem and this expo event I also came across and I also check with the expo management that this event is confirmed and I also take up this expo event. For your info, I m not helping this organizer as I have check with the management so I m here to share. I have done his event outdoor at hougang, parkway and amk which I have earn profit from his event, so I m fine with his event. Lastly I also check with the expo management that if this organizer cancel this expo event and he have to pay up 80% of the rental the expo management, so I don't think he will cancel this event.

Dear "Organiser",
You really do not need to be so defensive. I was just sharing to inform people here to be careful. That's all. Just some food for thought:

1) Why would an event organiser has to changed his name a few times (From Jason, to Ices and then to Cabin now)?

2) You mentioned that you have join his event a few times from Hougang, AMK to Parkway. This means you are a vendor and not an organiser. Is it "strange" that a vendor would give himself a nick called "Organiser"?

3) By the way, Expo management usually DO NOT reveal what are the terms of their contract or refund policy to ordinary vendors who call in to check. They only reveal this to the organiser themselves.

4) Lastly, for those members here who are familiar with how pushcartforum works, a simple check with the nickname will be able to tell what name did the person register in the first place. Below are the details of your nickname (Organiser) :

Additional Information Group Memberships

Name: ices
Location: Geylang
My core areas of business:
Online Retailing, Service Retailing, Event Organiser
Occupation: Entrepreneur

You see, if I'm not mistaken, you are in fact jason/ices/cabin. Honestly, you really do not need to be so defensive. Like I have mentioned, I have not met you and have nothing against you. If you want to be a good organiser, firstly, you must be honest. Whatever is past is past. Just move on. Learn from your mistake and be a better organiser. There are a lot of event organiser in the market nowadays so do a good job and I'm sure a lot of people will continue to support you in your future events. Learn to build trust with vendors. If your event is cancel for whatever reasons, do refund vendors as soon as possible and this will build their trust in you.
In anyway, if your event at expo is genuinely organised by yourself, I wish you the best of luck !

I agree with you on this. I saw the same number just last month in gumtree, this person was advertising for flea market, apparently he said in his wadsapp that it was at the grass patch behind cpf building in tampines, i went and there was no event at all. when i text him earlier to enquire on the cost, he seems agitated.
i just went to gumtree website, i saw cabin's advertisement.
sorry i find organiser very dubious

I had checked the Singapore expo calendar and there is really this event called Singapore fashion expo.. But there are total 150 vendors over there n I believe customers will have more choice to choose. The organsier don't limit to how many stalls selling accessories or clothings n etc. That is also stopping me to sign up for the events as there are too many vendors unless you have something which other vendors don't have.. An advice for vendors...
