|It has come to the Organiser’s attention that some exhibition/trade directories or organisations have sent invitations to exhibitors inviting them to update or correct their data with their fair directories and subsequently claimed exhibitors for fees.
These directories and organisations include but are not limited to the following:
|Fair Guide (owned by Construct Data)|
|Expo Guide (owned by Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV (“Commercial Online Manuals”)|
|Event Fair - The Exhibitors Index, and|
|FAIR-Guide (www.fairguide.me) (oened by Avron s.r.o. ).|
|International Fairs Directory|
|The Organiser would like to stress that neither the Fair Guide, the Expo Guide, the Event Fair the FAIR-Guide, AVRON nor the International Fairs Directory has any connection with the Organiser or any of our fairs.
UFI, an international organization which represents the interests of the exhibition industry worldwide has been warning the exhibition industry to be vigilant against Fair Guide, Expo Guide, Construct Data, Commercial Online Manuals and other similar guides and organisations such as Event Fair, AVRON and the International Fairs Directory. UFI has also reported that debt collection agencies work in partnership with these guides to intimidate exhibitors for payment. The practice of Construct Data has been considered as unconscionable and misleading by the Austrian Protective Association. Recent information suggests that Construct Data has shifted its operation from Austria to Mexico and/or Slovakia.
It should be noted that the contents and wording of Fair Guide’s and Expo Guide’s letter and order form are virtually identical. It is possible that Construct Data and Commercial Online Manuals, Event Fair, AVRON and the International Fairs Directory are related companies or are in some way connected. You should therefore exercise due diligence and care when being approached for such invitations so as to avoid possible unwarranted and/or unnecessary financial commitments. In order to protect your own interests, you are urged to read the contracts (including the small print) and attachments carefully, as well as seeking legal advice, before signing any such documents.
The Organiser do not recommend that you sign any materials that you receive from Construct Data, Commercial Online Manuals Event Fair and/or AVRON and/or International Fairs Directory. If you have mistakenly entered into contract with Construct Data, Commercial Online Manuals, Event Fair and/or AVRON and/or International Fairs Directory, you should notify Construct Data, Commercial Online Manuals, Event Fair and/or AVRON and/or International Fairs Directory in writing and inform them that you dispute the validity of the contract on the basis of mistake and/or misrepresentation. You should take legal advice as to how to respond to any demands for payment that you might receive.
