PMEC China is not only a stage showing the whole pharmaceutical industry chain which includes integrated pharm, pharmaceutical machinery, packaging materials, laboratory equipment and so on, but also an excellent platform for brand marketing and networking with peers in the industry. We met more new clients around the world and saw the development of microbial culture and cell culture in the whole industry which helps us a lot to shape our course of the future market.

Dec has been the exhibitor of PMEC China for 4 years. We met lots of high-quality domestic visitors and introduced our products to them during the fair when we were showing our latest powder processing, micronization and the closed process equipment. The organizer keeps promoting the influence of PMEC China in the pharmaceutical industry by different ways every year. I sincerely hope that PMEC China will be better and better!

Do not under any circumstances sign any form from: Expo Guide, ExpoFairs, FairGuide.com, Construct Data Verlag, Tradeconference.info, Fair Express Ltd, GETAFairs & Business, Direct Publisher, International Fairs Directory, GoFair.

These 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 Premiumn 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 and 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. Additional information is available on the website of UFI (The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry): here.
