Exhibitors are being targeted by companies claiming to be, or work with, event organisers. They use existing event branding and may appear genuine.  In the past this has included directories and hotel bookings but companies are now also claiming they can sell visitor data from events. This is not the case. 

Be vigilant, read the small print, inform your exhibition, marketing and finance teams about the risk of scams and check with your organiser if you receive anything you are not expecting or are unsure of.

Organisations such as Event Fair, FairGuide.com/Construct Data Verlag, Expo Guide (Mexico) and International Fairs Directory (Portugal) are targeting exhibitors with their misleading directory services. Unsuspecting 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.

Floor coverings must not be laid or fixed directly to the BDC (Venue) carpet - Exhibitors/Contractors must ensure that adequate precautions are taken to protect the venue carpet from damage. If you are putting your own floor covering, you will be required to lay a wooden floor/platform before your floor covering can be used, this must be finished with a metal/plastic edging trim. If you do not have your own wooden floor/platform please click here and the GPE Events team will be able to put you in touch with the venue who can help you with this.
