Notice to the exhibitor regarding the company WWWDB SRO and its Event Fair Exhibitors Index database

Regarding the international fair exhibitor database whose name has continually changed in recent years, namely:

"FAIR GUIDE", "EXPO GUIDE", "EVENT FAIR The Exhibitors Index" or "INTERNATIONAL FAIRS DIRECTORY", etc. which seems to be its most recent denomination.

Due to the numerous requests for clarification and information received about this directory of fairs and data, we wish to state the following:

  1. IFEMA has no connection with this company or with its database or its publications.
  2. Recently detected companies that market this database, and there might be others, are:
    • wwwdb s.r.o. (Slovakia);
    • MULPOR COMPANY, SA (Uruguay),
    • EXPOGUIDE SC (Mexico),

These entities, based in different countries, market, exclusively on their own, their advertising inserts.

  1. The mechanism used is that a letter is sent to an exhibitor accompanied by a semi-completed form, which contains data on the fair, the venue and the information on the exhibiting company that the organisation that owns this directory has.
  2. The recipient is invited to update their details, either free (if done online), or by paid ad insertion and for an initial duration of three years with tacit extensions, if done by signing the form and sending it in the enclosed envelope.
  3. This form does not have space for setting up a direct debit, instead the company issues an annual invoice. The company the Exhibitor is dealing with and the cost of the service, jurisdiction and system of tacit extensions appears at the bottom of the form in the small print.
  4. This form generates continual misunderstandings among users, and it is common for exhibitors to complain to us about having inadvertently purchased unwanted advertising services. The fair organiser, in this case IFEMA, is frequently assumed to be associated with the provider of these services.
  5. The trade fair community, through the UFI, (The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry) has, on several occasions, required this company, which has during its history undergone various changes of name and registered office, as well as changing the name of the database (FAIR GUIDE, EXPO GUIDE, EVENT FAIR, INTERNATIONAL FAIRS DIRECTORY), to cease the ambiguous marketing of its advertising.
  6. In the event that an Exhibitor has signed the form without noticing the onerous nature of the service that was actually being purchased, we suggest that you contact the contracting entity indicating that you do not wish to purchase the service and that the completion of the form was done in order to correct or update their data for free and not to purchase the paid service, a confusion which you consider to be consequence of the ambiguity of the aforementioned document.

In accordance with the foregoing and in order to avoid unwanted situations which IFEMA can do nothing about, we ask all our Exhibitors that if they receive the aforementioned subscription form, to read it carefully before signing it, ensuring that they really want to purchase the service offered.
