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.

See an example of a false listing form here.

These publications have no connection with us or any of our events. We strongly adviseour exhibitors, and the entire exhibition community, to be most vigilant against this and similarorganisations.There are many so-called guides that mail deceptive contracts and then harassthose who sign them in error for money. However the sheer scale and systematic way in which these guides attack exhibitors is outrageous.
