Exhibitor Warning


Expo Guide or International Fairs Directory target companies through legitimate exhibition guides. Their current activities cover companies throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia.

These companies 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.

See an example here or here.

Unsuspecting exhibitors who sign and return the form are then contracted into a three-year, non-retractable agreement, which could cost you a significant amount of money, with no foreseeable benefits. Included in their group is debt collection agency Gravis Inkasso GmbH and Swiss debt collection agency Premiumn Recovery AG (a Construct Data subsidiary) which works in partnership with the various guides to intimidate exhibitors into paying.

These publications have no connection with us or any of our events. We strongly advise our exhibitors, and the entire exhibition community, to be most vigilant against this and similar organisations.

If you have any doubts in this regard, please refer to our official partners list.
