Notes for exhibitors

We would like to inform you that numerous suppliers have issued so-called "unofficial exhibitor directories". There are also e-mails in circulation that offer lists of exhibitors and visitors. Or manipulated invoices were also sent, the subject of cybercrime.. Please pay attention to our information on this topics:

We would like to inform you that numerous suppliers such as Construct Data (FAIRGuide, Expo Guide), Matic Verlagsgesellschaft mbH and the online catalogue "International Fairs Directory" have issued so-called "unofficial exhibitor directories".

These directories have nothing to do with the official exhibitor directory as issued by Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH.

The official exhibitor directory as well as all online media are strictly issued by Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH in collaboration with Messe Frankfurt Medien und Service GmbH.

The billing of the booked online media is based on the respective trade fair event visited. The invoices correspond to the typical Messe Frankfurt Corporate design.

You can find more information about the so-called "unofficial exhibitor directories" on the home page of the AUMA, the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry.

We would like to inform you about e-mails with such or similar contents:

There is no cooperation between the Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH and e-mail senders who offer an alleged "Attendees List/Visitors List" or similar. Visitors and/or exhibitor lists for trade fairs will by the Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH not be passed on, sold or passed on for sale to third parties in any other unauthorized way. Only non-personalized data (among others no personal e-mail addresses) is publicly accessible in the context of trade fairs. The scope of the exhibitor application depends on the marketing services (media package, exhibitor search, catalog etc.) booked for the trade fair event.

In the past, it has happened several times that invoices sent electronically by Messe Frankfurt have been intercepted by fraudsters, the bank details changed and the manipulated invoice forwarded to the business partner in the logical second. For this purpose, the perpetrators usually use slightly modified e-mail addresses that look confusingly similar to Messe Frankfurt's e-mail address. If the fraud is not detected, the customers transfer the amount to the bank account manipulated by the fraudsters.

Therefore, please be aware to the sender's e-mail address when sending invoices in the future. Messe Frankfurt does not currently intend to change its bank details. Should this nevertheless happen, we will inform you in a separate letter before issuing the invoice.

Regardless of this, we are working on a technical system solution to prevent this possibility of fraud. Until this is implemented, we ask you for awareness. Messe Frankfurt is very keen to ensure that our business relationship with you is not affected by such fraud and we look forward to a long-term business relationship.
