Be advised, be vigilant, beware in any dealings with Expo Guide/FairGuide.com/Construct Data Verlag and other questionable practices
Expo Guide/FairGuide.com/Construct Data Verlag target companies through legitimate exhibition guides aimed at exhibitors. Their current activities cover companies throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia.
Expo Guide joins FairGuide in claiming 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 online directory. Unsuspecting exhibitors who sign and return the form are then contracted into a three-year, non-retractable agreement, which could cost the exhibitor 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 Premiumn Recovery AG (a Construct Data subsidiary) which works in partnership with the various guides to intimidate exhibitors into paying.
Recently some of our exhibitors received a proposal to be included in the EXPO GUIDE of Expo Guide S de RL de CV. This guide invites you to advertise three years in the fair and exhibitor directory under www.expo-guide.com. If you read the small print at the bottom of the entry form, you can see that you agree to a contract that costs 3 years € 1181,00 a year which is very hard to unsubscribe. Please note EXPO GUIDE and FAIR GUIDE is not an initiative of RAI Amsterdam.
RAI Amsterdam does not support EXPO GUIDE or any other initiative of this kind like for instance FAIR GUIDE or Euro Business Guide.
(if you get one of these, throw it away).
