Warning to our exhibitors!

International Fairs Directory, EXPO GUIDE, Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV

We would like to draw your attention to untrustworthy exhibitor directory offers:

A Mexican company called "EXPO GUIDE, S.C." has contacted several exhibitors of Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre and asked them to update their entries on Expo Guide, a database for trade fairs and exhibitors. This company as well as a company called International Fairs Directory are currently aggressively expanding their presences on the German market. We would like to emphasise once again that none of the aforementioned companies has any cooperation whatsoever with the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre. The entries on the Expo Guide site (www.expo-guide.com) and the International Fairs Directory (https://www.inter-fairs.com) are not related to any of our trade fairs.

Unsuspecting exhibitors are contracted to a three-year, non-retractable agreement, which could cost you a 1.171 € per year, with no foreseeable benefits.

If you receive any those letters, throw them away. If you mistakenly signed a contract, please follow the advice of the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry.

Karlsruher Messe- und Kongress GmbH expressly distances itself from the services offered by any of those companies as Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV and International Fairs Directory!

We also warn against dubious companies that try to sell exhibitors visitor lists. In the English-language e-mails, exhibitors are offered lists of visitors to the trade fair at which they will be exhibiting. Promised are directories with company names, contact persons and complete contact details. Exhibitors should ignore the emails and qualify these dubious offers as spam.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
