It has been brought to our attention that there are companies contacting past and previous exhibitors, requesting data and/or money for misleading directory or events services.
Examples of this include a Mexican media company in the name of Oscar Guerrero, Data Informatix INC, FairGuide.com/Construct Data Verlag or a Uruguayan company called International Fairs Directory. We have also been made aware of a company called 'Exhibitors Network' approaching exhibitors to sign up for an annual registration fee to be on an exhibitor register.
These company are NOT affiliated with us and we are doing everything we can to ensure that this activity stops. This is, unfortunately, quite a common scam within the exhibition industry where events have an exhibitor list with a company name on its website. Please see more advice put together by the Association of Event Organisers.
We have received letters and emails they are sending out and are investigating the organisations involved, but if you have any further information or you have any questions please do contact us.
We’d like to remind our exhibitors to always check out our preferred contractors list within our Technical Manual if you’re ever unsure if a potential supplier is trustworthy. If you're still not sure, please give us a call, we are always here to talk these things through and help find solutions where we can.
