Clarion Events Deutschland does NOT cooperate with Expo Guide, International Fairs Directory etc.

We have been receiving repeated inquiries by exhibitors as to whether a third-party company is licensed to offer updates of entries in the so-called Expo Guide exhibitor directory or International Fairs Directory. Clarion Events Deutschland GmbH, the organiser of the FMB fair, would like to make it very clear that it is in no way affiliated with such providers or directories and has no connection whatsoever with third-party companies offering services related to the Expo Guide or similar.

Clarion Events Deutschland will always notify its exhibitors of entries in the official exhibitor directories of the aforementioned trade fairs. This information on our part also extends to selected service providers commissioned by Clarion Events Deutschland to create exhibitor directories. If in doubt, please contact our project leaders.

In regard to this matter we would like to draw your attention to a publication by AUMA (Association of the German Trade Fair Industry):

Expensive directory entry

The Mexico-based company “Expo Guide S de RL de CV“ is once again aggressively attempting to sell entries into their online guide to exhibitors. Those entries will incur substantial costs.

AUMA points out that currently Mexico-based “Expo Guide S de RL de CV“ is extensively approaching trade fair exhibitors to encourage them to buy listings in its proprietary online exhibitor directory, Expo Guide. In the small print of the registration form there is a clause tying the exhibitor to the company for the duration of three years at an annual cost of €1.181.

A presence in the official media (exhibitor directories, catalogue entries) only tends to be guaranteed by the organisers of fairs who contact their exhibitors either directly or via trusted third parties.

For any questions please get in touch with AUMA and contact Ms Rain Silvia Bauermeister+49 30 24000-103 or Ms Barbara-Maria Lüder +49 30 24000-104.
