  • You can unsubscribe from our Spiceworks email on your profile page, and here is an official unsubscribe page for our company: https://pages.swzd.com/swzd-subscription-preferences-page.html

    However, it isn't us sending you the spam in most cases.  It is the individual companies that sponsor the event and give things away.  Their offerings are useful for some, of course, but if they are not to you, then you'll have to be proactive about asking to be added to their do not contact list or removed from their contact list, whichever way they do it.  They're required to allow you to opt out.  And if the same person contacts you twice and you've already said no, then an email filter can be useful.

    I'm absolutely not saying that I am fan of spam... I'm definitely not, especially the ones that I get that automatically open tickets in our helpdesk, but as long as the vendors are following the rules, you should be able to unsubscribe.

  • I would expect that any of the vendors there, especially if you did the passport to prizes would e-mail you as they are scanning your badge with your info.

  • I went to Hpn hippocon and I am still getting spam but for each one I get I make sure I click the unsubscribe link at the bottom and if they're a legit company they will stop.

  • I usually spend some time after Spiceworld unsubscribing from any of the "Passport to Prizes" vendors emails that I don't need or want.

    Just click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email. Sometimes it takes a couple of unsubscribes to stop the emails. I think some of them add you to multiple email lists.

  • Yeah this was a very noob moment for me..... Not proud!   I really didn't mind the idea of vendors of the show reaching out.  But not all of the continental US Vendor supply chain. lol.

  • Suzanne (Spiceworks)​   No, no, not spiceworks spam at all. I enjoy all content I recieve from Spiceworks. And im not by any means blaming spiceworks for the spam. I think most likely someone is selling or sharing the email contacts once they get them. I dunno.  Just wanted to vent and see if anyone else was experiencing the joy!  

    Thanks though Suzanne!

  • Yeah, just part of the "experience". 

    One option is to give them a bogus email address but they will find you. Eventually.

    I swear I never answer my work phone unless it's a REAL caller ID and I know who it is.

  • when I go to an expo like spiceworld, I guard my badge against vendors scanning it.  only those I really want info from will I let scan it.

    and for those that offer SWAG but only if they let you scan, really weigh the "value" of that swag to make sure it is worth being hounded in the future.

  • I create a special email, just for events, so I can track, and cancel once I've received the information I want.

    Some vendors are good, and provide an unsubscribe link.  Other's don't, and they usually end up on my block list.
