DO NOT sign any forms from them.

They target companies globally through exhibition guides and data selling.

Expo Guide claims to offer online listing services but tricks exhibitors into non-retractable three-year contracts with no benefits.

Beware of debt collection agencies like Gravis Inkasso Gmbh and Premium Recovery AG (Construct Data subsidiary) working with them.

They have no connection to our events.

Stay vigilant against such organizations as they use deceptive tactics on a large scale.
