Warning concerning unofficial indices of exhibitors
EXPO GUIDE, S.C. and Connect Publisher S.C., companies registered in Mexico, offers updated company information in an exhibitors directory for fairs and exhibitions under the reference „Data Review / Validity expiration”, which is fee-based. The fine print of these order forms indicates that upon their being signed, a contract is concluded for three (3) years that will generate costs of at least EUR 1,000.00 per annum. Recently the Construct Data Publishers a.s., registered now in Bratislava, Slovakia, is again offering a listing in its exhibitors directory “Fair Guide”. The approach is the same as with the “Expo Guide” and "Connect Publisher".
Since many exhibitors have been receiving these proposals, we wish to make clear that the registrations offered to be made in the “Expo Guide”, "International Fairs Directory"(Connect Publisher S.C) or “Fair Guide”are not entries in the official index of exhibitors for InnoTrans. Messe Berlin is not connected in any way whatsoever to the publishers of the “Expo Guide” and “Fair Guide”. We wish to indicate to our exhibitors that Messe Berlin either produces its catalogues itself or awards exclusive contracts for the production and marketing of such catalogues. Any publishing firms we work with will introduce themselves to the exhibitors as the exclusive catalogue publisher for Messe Berlin or the respective fair project. For InnoTrans is our exclusive partner for the print and online catalogue the editorial team Virtual Market Place®
Once exhibitors have been admitted to a fair, their basic entry in the official fair catalogue is assured. Furthermore, all exhibitors will be contacted by the editorial team of Virtual Market Place® so that they may complete their entries in the online catalogue should they so desire. Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com at any time should you receive a proposal and have doubts as regards the party submitting such proposal. If you have already signed an agreement with an external offeror in the erroneous assumption that this company is connected in any way to our official index of exhibitors, we urgently recommend that you contact an attorney prior to expiry of the period for revoking and/or voiding such contracts. For further information please also write to the AUMA , Association of the German Trade Fair Industry (firstname.lastname@example.org). On its website you will find further advice including a sample letter on how to react to reminders.
Warning – misleading emails from blueleadzs.com
It has come to our attention that a company of unknown origin has approached exhibitors on the VMP website and is offering a database based on VMP data. We wish to make it clear that this provider entertains no business links with Messe Berlin GmbH or InnoTrans and is not authorised to make offers of this kind. Only Messe Berlin GmbH possesses rights to this database. Taking over key parts of the database violates the rights of Messe Berlin GmbH as producer of said database. We therefore expressly request that you do not respond to any of these offers.
