Fairguide publishers, such as “Expo-Guide”, “Inter-Fairs” and “International Fairs Directory”, are using Mack Brooks Exhibitions’ event names and trademarks to solicit show exhibitors to get a listing in their online directory.
These companies use a form, which resembles an organiser's catalogue listing service, inviting exhibitors to sign and return the form. On signing the form, the exhibitor is bound into a three-year, non-retractable agreement and is required to pay the stipulated fee each year. Any failure to pay results in the fairguide publishers chasing for payment.
Mack Brooks Exhibitions is in no way connected to these companies or their products.
