Exhibition services

The scope of services covers activities relating to the preparation, carrying out and completion of the participation.




International Fair Plovdiv publishes official printed catalogues in Bulgarian and English.

Since 2010, the information on exhibitors is also available online in the Online Exhibitors Catalogue:

The text information and exhibition categories entered in the printed catalogue are automatically transferred in the online catalogue. In addition, exhibitors can publish a company logo, a banner or an extra presentation file.
The online catalogue is activated after the expiration of the deadline for participation (see Form 1) and is updated on a weekly basis. It shall be available until the next online catalogue of the same event is published.

All companies, who have applied for participation within the specified deadline, are entitled to a catalogue entry. The information for the catalogue entry shall be provided in:

  •  Form 2  - Catalogue and Infosystem

For further information, please visit Advertising, Catalogue and Information/Catalogue




An Austrian company known as Expo Guide/ Data Verlag (CD) through its online FairGuide claims to be offering online services and uses a form which resembles an organiser's free catalogue listing service, inviting exhibitors to sign and return the form for an entry in an on-line directory.

Do not sign this form! Exhibitors who sign and return the form are then contracted into a three-year, non-retractable agreement, which could cost the exhibitor a significant amount of money, with no foreseeable benefits.

If you signed in error and dispute CDs demands, do not pay. To be covered by the agreement you must notify CD that you signed in error.
