Such companies or titles are NOT associated in any way with PRIME Expo or Dubai World Trade Centre.
Sadly, we have seen such practices in our industry for some years. These companies provide legitimate exhibition guides aimed at exhibitors across the globe, offering online listing services. They use a form which resembles an organiser’s free catalogue listing service, inviting exhibitors to complete the form for an entry in an on-line directory. Unsuspecting exhibitors who sign and return the form are then contracted into a three-year, non-retractable agreement, which could cost the exhibitor a significant amount of money, with very limited foreseeable benefits. In reality, the details are often available on the form itself, but are often too small and insignificant to be noticed. It is always wise to read all the small print before signing a contract, and if the information is impossible to read then the contract should not be signed.
