international fairs directory misleading our exhibitors!
We would like to warn you about the International Fairs Directory. International Fairs Directory target companies which they find listed as exhibitors in public trade fair databases.
International Fairs Directory offer to list your company in an online database (e.g. www.inter-fairs.com). The correspondence sent out by International Fairs Directory is designed to leave a cursory reader with the impression that it has been sent by the trade fair organiser or that they are offering a free entry in an exhibitor list. The letter is accompanied by a form containing the exhibitor’s basic details and a request to amend any incorrect details. The reference to the upcoming trade fair suggests that a business relationship has already been established. The fee for entering your details is only shown in the fine print and amounts to EUR 1271 or EUR 1212 per year. Further information for exhibitors who have already mistakenly signed a data entry request can be downloaded from the AUMA organisation.
Exhibition and Trade Fairs does not collaborate in any way with International Fairs Directory and we do not allow this organisation to use our name or our trademark in their correspondence.
We recommend that all our exhibitors exercise great caution in any dealings with this and similar companies. Such companies damage the image and the reputation of the trade fair and exhibition sector.
