Their names are different but their purpose is the same: a scam perpetrated against exhibitors using misleading directory services.
Current activities include mailing deceptive contracts to our exhibitors for listings in directories. However, these listings are far from free-of-charge: in fact, the unfortunate company which inadvertently signs such an agreement in good faith finds itself confronted with a three-year non-retractable contract and subsequent invoice. The cost details are always well hidden in very small print and there are no clear benefits from such a listing. To add insult to injury, these organisations are often linked to debt-collecting companies, whose sole purpose is intimidation, trying to force exhibitors to pay.

It is very easy to sign up: their form often resembles an organiser’s free catalogue listing service, inviting exhibitors to complete the form for an entry in an online directory. However, these publications have no connection with exhibition organisers or any of their events, and we strongly remind UFI members, exhibitors and the entire exhibition community, to be most vigilant against this and similar organisations. Such illicit practices can cause extreme damage and harm to the reputation of the exhibition industry.
We therefore advise exhibition organisers to take the initiative and inform their exhibitors before they are deceived by these fraudulent practices.
