BVE 2017

Warning for Exhibitors – Unofficial Contractors

Expo-Guide and claim to provide services to exhibitors at events. Both companies use a misleading form, which resembles an organiser’s Free Catalogue Listing Service, inviting exhibitors to sign and return the form for an entry in an on-line directory. Doing so contracts the purchaser into the three-year, non-retractable agreement. Non-payment is then followed by aggressive debt collecting by Premium Recovery.

They are not an official supplier of BVE or of any exhibition organised by Ascential Events. If you are contacted by this company and if they claim to be working with any of our shows, we would suggest that you do not progress the conversation any further, and that you contact us immediately to inform us of the approach.

You can find further information about Expo-Guide and on the Association of Event Organiser’s website.

Please also note that unfortunately there are many suppliers out there that ‘data-scrape’ our show websites and contact exhibitors posing as official contractors of Ascential Events, in particular, hotel agencies (Trade Show Housing/ Convention Housing Services)/ staffing agencies/ AV suppliers/ stand contractors and graphics suppliers.

We have a set list of trusted suppliers that we work with, their names and contact details can be found under the ‘Contractors’ page in the online Exhibitor Manual. If you have any concerns about the legitimacy of suppliers who get in touch with you, please feel free to contact us anytime –
