Hi Beztech,

Whether we are helping or not, we are still an organiser as we help to organise it, thus the word organisor is used as we still help to "organise" the event and being an organisor ourselves.

In any case, if his reputation was extremely bad, EXPO management would have rejected his application in the first place.

But not that we want to defend our "competitor" and this serves us no good, our mgmt has decided to end and will not have any future collaboration with Ideal Solution going forward.

Thanks,
Fleamonster

Also, when you choose to "help" other organiser in future, please indicate it in your posting that you are "helping" another organiser and "NOT" the actual organiser yourself. This will give other people wrong impression of your company.
Flea monster,
Obviously you can tell from the chain of this forum that ideal solution is nothing but a scammer, a con man. Since you choose to associate yourself with company and people like them then sorry to say you are putting your reputation at stake too. I'm suprised you are willing to 'help' people of such... I'm definately a victim and can justify for that. Ices & now know as cabin have not refunded me the money since sept 2012. And obviously the case is filed legally with many other victims..

Need help from fellow vendors here. My friend did not know about the bad record of the organiser (cabin) and had booked for the event starting this Fri. Apparently, there is no update regarding the event. She has also tried calling the organiser but he did not pick up his phone. She is starting to get panic as the event will start tomorrow and there is still no update on the event by the organiser. Can anybody here tell me whether expo management allow organiser to pay a deposit and settle the balance of the rental space later on? If this Cabin has already paid fully to the management of expo, he should not have cancel it right?

History is repeating itself! so sorry to hear that your friend has booked the venue and is unable to contact the organiser, i think is best she quickly lodge a police report, good luck

I also have booked 2 stalls in this event, Front 2 Booths.

I will come back to post on the overall results of this expo event and the crowd.

Provided its School Holidays & other halls are having good events, I do expect good crowd at Expo and spill over crowds from other halls.

We do have a company lawyer, in case anything is a miss like some posts earlier stated. But I think everything should be smooth. Hopefully.

All your preamps were right! I have been contacting till yesterday and he kept saying he will send the details the next day but it never came and today there are lots of vendors outside the hall and was told by the expo mgt that the hall was not paid for!

Once bitten twice shy! Will never ever trust any organizers who just send emails asking you to join their events!

Yes. The event is cancelled. We will be filing police report and taking legal actions against the organiser and his company.

Hi,

I think you misunderstood. We clearly was not aware that he is a scammer as we have many vendors who used to follow him and now is following us that his events do run although with high cancellations. He is a poor planner not a scammer.

We simply do not choose to be associated with a scammer and we are not associated with them in anyway. In any case, our high reputations supercede his bad reputation and we have a steady regular followers of more than 10,000 vendors and that is the very reason our events are always fully booked one month in advanced and we are proud to say that we have zero cancellation with full bookings at our every event as we listen to our vendors and we know where, how and when to organise and when not to organise.

We have helped Government agencies like the MArine Parade GRC Countdown, Schools, Malls and many more events and continue to be a trusted brand.

Upon seeing this recently, we have immediately ceased all collaborations with Ideal Solutions and I hope this helps to clarifies.

For those that felt cheated, I would recommend going to small claims tribunal. It will cost $10 for individual and $50 for companies I believe to file it.

Thanks,
Fleamonster
