2014 BrewExpo America® Exhibitor List
WARNING: Fair Guide & Expoguide Scam
The Austrian publishing company Construct Data Verlag GmbH, which operates internationally, is sending out advertising communications virtually worldwide for entry in an online fair exhibitors’ directory bearing the name “Fair Guide”. Because the timing of this communication is close to that of the respective fair/conference date, and due also to the presentation, recipients often have the false impression that, even when signed and submitted, this is a free entry and/or entry / update for the official exhibitors’ directory of the respective fair/conference organization, although completing the entry is in fact subject to a charge, and entry has nothing directly to do with the fair mentioned or its organizer. Recently, several Craft Brewers Conference exhibitors have been contacted by this company (eg. Expo Guide, FairGuide.com, Construct Data Verlag) asking them to complete a form providing company details and pay for an online program listing for the Craft Brewers Conference. WARNING: Brewers Association is not in any way affiliated with these organizations. DO NOT SIGN ANY FORMS FROM THEM. Expo Guide/FairGuide.com/Construct Data Verlag target companies through legitimate exhibition guides. They claim to offer conference listing services. They use a form inviting exhibitors to complete the form for an entry in an on-line directory. Above the form they print the conference name in large type, leading some people to believe it is a company with whom we work. Unsuspecting exhibitors who sign and return the form are then contracted into a three-year, non-retractable agreement, which could cost you a significant amount of money, with no foreseeable benefits. In the small print on the bottom of the form, costs of $1,717 USD per year are outlined, for the duration of three years. Unfortunately, a lot of people do not see this and sign the contract. If you are contacted by a company other than Brewers Association or our official vendors (Freeman Company for exhibitor services or PRG for AV services), please exercise caution and contact us if you have any questions. There are several websites that warn of this scam- http://stopecg.org/construct_data_fairguide.htm
