As Organizer of ASTEC, it has come to our attention that "Fair Guide" from Construct Data Publishers (Slovakia), is Contacting our exhibitors by FAX or mailing, soliciting fair catalogue entries. The writings bear our exhibition names, and are sent with an application for "updating your company information on Fair Guide".
This service appears as a free listing, however, once the application form is signed and sent back to Fair Guide, subscribers will receive an invoice. The service is fee-based, a fact that is only mentioned in the small print details on the bottom of the application.
Please note that we do not have any relationship with "Fair Guide" or a similar service named "Expo Guide" at all. We as organizers of the above fairs offer you to submit your Exhibitor's information only via our official websites and as a free of charge service. We categorically disassociate ourselves from the business practices of Fair Guide.
We strongly advise all our exhibitors to be vigilant against organizations such as Fair Guide, who do not represent the good name developed within the exhibitions industry. Please warn other exhibitors about such guides and more generally to carefully read small print details before signing any document.
