Some of our exhibitors have been fraudulently targeted by companies called Expo Guide, FairGuide.com and International Fairs Directory.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES SIGN ANY FORMS FROM THEM. WE DO NOT SUPPORT THESE GUIDES.
Expo Guide/FairGuide.com/International Fairs Directory target companies through legitimate exhibition guides. Their current activities cover companies throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia. They claim to offer online listing services. They use a form which resembles an organiser's free catalogue listing service, inviting exhibitors to complete the form for an entry in an on-line directory. Above the form they print our exhibition name in big letters, leading a lot of people to think it is a company with whom we work. Unsuspecting exhibitors who sign and return the form are then contracted into a non-retractable agreement, which could cost a significant amount of money, with no foreseeable benefits.
In the small lines below the form is mentioned that the costs are €1271 per year, for the duration of three years. Unfortunately a lot of people do not see this and sign the contract. Included in their group is debt collection agency Gravis Inkasso Gmbh and Swiss debt collection agency Premium Recovery AG (a Construct Data subsidiary) which works in partnership with the various guides to intimidate exhibitors into paying.
These companies have no connection with us or any of our events. We strongly advise our exhibitors to be most vigilant against this and similar organisations. Additional information on the Expo Guide, FairGuide and other Construct Data Verlag publications is available on the Association of Event Organiser's website.
