EXHIBITION DIRECTORY SCAM
In recent years, a small number of our exhibitors have alerted us to a scam style business activity.
The global association of the exhibition industry, UFI, asks exhibitors and organisers to:
'be advised, be vigilant, beware, in any dealings with:
- Expo Guide
- Construct Data Verlag and other questionable practices
To summarise the scam:
Exhibitors are sent a letter and order form for a listing in a directory that the publisher's claim will 'guarantee problem-free communication to all visitors'. This is not only an outrageous claim for a company with no affiliation to any organiser or marketing association - there are also significant costs attached to the order - detailed only in the small print.
If you receive correspondence from Expo Guide, Fairguide or Construct Data Verlag, we strongly recommend that you ignore it.
