EMERGENCY WARNING - International Trade Directory, Expo Guide, ExpoFairs, FairGuide.com & Construct Data Verlag
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES SIGN ANY FORMS FROM THEM
International Trade Directory/Expo Guide/ExpoFairs/FairGuide.com/Construct Data Verlag target companies through legitimate exhibition guides. Their current activities cover companies throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia.
Expo Guide claims 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. 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 Premium 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.There are many so-called guides that mail deceptive contracts, then harass those who sign them in error for money. However, the sheer scale and systematic way in which these guides attack exhibitors is outrageous.
