Warning about directory scams and other fraudulent service providers

Providers of unofficial exhibitor directories and other trade fair-related services repeatedly cause annoyance among organisers and exhibitors. 

These companies send out offer forms to exhibitors at German trade fairs. The structure of these companies' forms is such that it could be mistaken, for example, for a free entry in the official exhibitor directory of the trade fair organiser. In fact, however, the small print results in high costs
As exhibitors at our trade fairs, we would like to point out to you that these companies and their exhibitor directories have no business relationship whatsoever with GHM Gesellschaft für Handwerksmessen mbH and the trade fairs we organise.

We also point out that only Gentner Verlag is the official (catalogue) publisher of IFH/Intherm (ifh@gentner.deifh@gentner.de).

If you have already signed a form or concluded other contracts by mistake, you should revoke this as soon as possible or react with a declaration of rescission due to error.
If you are not sure whether an offer is directly from one of our trade fairs, then simply send it to us by fax (+49 89 189 149 239) with your contact details. We will then contact you so that you can be sure when you fill in a form.
