Attention! Company offers misleading services

Dear exhibitors,

UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, joins with the exhibition industry associations of several other countries to strongly condemn the actions of the Austrian based Data Verlag with their misleading services to exhibitors.

As a member of UFI, International Fair - Plovdiv informs you about the recommendations to beware in any dealings with this company.

Construct Data (Expo Guide/ Data Verlag) 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.

Expo Guide/ Data Verlag targets companies through legitimate exhibition guides aimed at exhibitors. Their current activities cover companies throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia.

Expo Guide/ Data Verlag has no connection with exhibition organisers or any of their events.

Copies of relevant correspondence on this subject is available by clicking on the following address:

If approached by Expo Guide/ Data Verlag you should immediately contact your local Austrian Embassy to provide information concerning problems with this organisation.

The Osterreichisches Patentamt, the Austrian Protective Association against Unfair Competition, and the Austrian Advertising Council have each taken steps against these misleading practices.
