Untrustworthy exhibitor directory offers
Publishers of unofficial exhibitor directories are targeting exhibitors in the run up to trade fairs, offering to provide customers with entries in inferior, sub-standard online directories. However, their terms may stipulate long-term obligations to pay several thousand euros, which are generally hidden in the small print. AUMA has for some time been advising the exhibitors concerned, who contact us almost daily in matters regarding unofficial exhibitor directories. AUMA has already documented several hundred cases, so that we are well informed as to how the publishers of unofficial directories operate.
