WARNING – A misleading service offered by companies: Expo Guide, Fair Guide, Construct Data, MULPOR
Companies such as Expo Guide, Fair Guide, Construct Data and MULPOR have no business relationship with BVV and the Brno Exhibition Centre disavows from the practices of these companies. We recommend that exhibitors do not respond to offers sent by Expo Guide etc. whatsoever.
Through our own findings and also based on notifications from our clients, the Brno Exhibition Centre noticed an increasing number of cases offering the publication of company information in the catalogues "FAIR Guide", "Expo Guide" and "International Fairs Directory". The catalogues are presented as "the largest internet list of trade fairs and exhibitors" and "a powerful medium for getting new customers, finding new business partners or trade fairs surveys".
The concept of these shady deals is always the same. Based on contacts obtained apparently from the freely accessible electronic version of our catalogue of exhibitors from our trade fair events, our clients receive English-language forms that at first glance look like a free update of data in the online catalogue. However, that is no the case. After completing and sending the form, the client receives an invoice for payment of almost 1,200 EUR per year. Only then the swindled client finds that in fact they signed an order of paid services, for three years even, without the possibility of termination.
We advise our clients to carefully read such "offers" before deciding to fill them out and send. If you still do it and do not want to pay for "unsolicited services", we recommend that you send the catalogue provider, who is listed in small print at the very end of the order, an announcement about withdrawing from the contract due of fraud. Do not react to any additional calls for payment, possibly also threaten them by raising criminal charges.
