Pay attention to Expo Guide, Fair Guide, Event Fair / The Exhibitors Index and International Fairs Directory
Rotterdam Ahoy receives questions and complaints of exposants on a regular base, as a result of a letter of 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). However 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 letters to companies with a form to correct their data for an indication in Expo Guide. After signing the letter/form, companies have to pay an annual, considerable amount for a number of time, paying for something that is not clear at all.
Event Fair / The exhibitors Index
Event Fair sends letters to companies with a request to correct their data for a free listng on the website. However, together with this letter a form is sent. After signing this form, the listing is transformed to an advertisement and have to pay an annual, considerable amount for a number of time.
This letter comes from the Austrian company Construct Data, which suggests to be mentioned for corrections for an indication in FAIR Guide, and a registration via the website to keep their company data up to date. In this case companies also have to pay an annual, considerable amount for a number of time, after signing the letter.
International Fairs Directory
This form comes from the company Connect Publisher (Mexico)/MULPOR Company S.A. from Uruguay, which also suggets to be mentioned for corrections for a registration via www.inter-fairs.com. By signing the form, it appears not to be a registration but an advertisement, for which the company also has 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, is something we cannot decide for you. However we would very much like to emphasise, that the data mentioned in Fair Guide, Expo Guide, Event Fair and International Fairs Directory, only is data of companies which 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 Rotterdam Ahoy does not cooperate with Construct Data in any way, and did not supply any data of exhibitors.
We hope we informed you well with the explanation above. If you have any questions left, please contact us.
