Pay attention to Expo Guide, Fair Guide, Event Fair / The Exhibitors Index and International Fairs Directory
On a regular base Rotterdam Ahoy receives questions or complaints from exhibitors who are approached by: the Austrian company Construct Data (Fair Guide), Expo Guide from Mexico (with an address in France), Event Fair / The Exhibitors Index from Slovakia (Bratislava) and International Fairs Directory (MULPOR Company S.A. from Uruguay). We very much like to emphasise, there is absolutely no cooperation with or solidarity between Rotterdam Ahoy and Expo Guide, Fair Guide, Event Fair / The Exhibitors Index and International Fairs Directory!
How does it work?
Expo Guide sends out letters to companies with a form to correct data for an listing in Expo Guide. After signing the letter/form, companies have to pay a considerable annual amount for a number of time and are expected to pay for something that is not clear at all.
Event Fair / The exhibitors Index
Event Fair sends out letters to companies with a request to verify and correct data for a free website listing. However, together with this letter a form is sent. After signing the form, the listing is transformed into an advertisement and companies must to pay a considerable annual amount for a number of time.
This letter comes from the Austrian company Construct Data, suggestsing to be mentioned for corrections for an listing in FAIR Guide and a registration via the website to keep company data up to date. In this case companies also have to pay a considerable annual amount for a number of time, after signing the letter.
International Fairs Directory
This form comes from the company Connect Publisher (Mexico) or MULPOR Company S.A. (Uruguay), also asking to make corrections for a registration on www.inter-fairs.com. By signing the form, it appears not to be a registration but an advertisement, for which the signing company also needs to pay a considerable amount.
If you, as an exhibitor, would like to make use of the possibility to have your data mentioned in Fair Guide, Expo Guide, Event Fair or International Fairs Guide, this is something we cannot decide for you. However we would like to emphasize, that the data mentioned in Fair Guide, Expo Guide, Event Fair and International Fairs Directory, only contains data from companies that have registered with payment, voluntary or not.
Besides, we suspect Construct Data copies address data of exhibitors from former fair catalogues and fair related websites. Again we insure you that Rotterdam Ahoy does not cooperate with Construct Data in any way, and did not supply any data from our exhibitors.
We hope to have informed you well with the explanation above. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us..
