In light of recent events please be advised that Deutsche Messe has absolutely no connection with providers of unauthorized catalogues such as:

  • INEXORG (International Exhibitors Organisation)
  • FAIRGUIDE/ Construct Data
  • International Fairs Directory
  • LIGNA MAGAZINE (Horizon Projects) etc
  • These companies mail out order forms for catalogue listings which resemble those of Deutsche Messe. Similarly, the exhibitor is requested to verify the correctness of his company information.

    The duration and charges for such listings are stated in the fine print, and the charges can amount to over €1,000 per year.

    In some cases those companies also send invoices (e.g. including the keyword "LIGNA Magazine") implying to be a Deutsche Messe AG invoice.

    This is not the case!

    Deutsche Messe explicitly rejects the business practices of these companies, which have never been authorized to use the name of Deutsche Messe or those of our trade fairs.

    For more information on catalogue scams, we have posted an information flyer from AUMA (Association of the German Trade Fair Industry) as a PDF file in the download area.
