WARNING! Beware of Misleading Advertising SCAMS...
Fairguide.com, Fair Guide, Fairguide, Construct Data Verlag AG, and others
An organization based in Slovakia, called Construct Data Verlag AG, is targeting exhibitors who
have participated in trade shows in Canada, the USA, Europe and other countries. Apparently
offering advertising space on their Fair Guide website, the company uses a 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. Exhibitors who sign and return the form are contracted
into a non-retractable agreement at significant cost for a period of at least three years and
continuing annually thereafter at the same cost, unless cancelled by registered letter within
the appropriate period.
Please note that the Atlantic Craft Trade Show has no association with Construct Data Verlag AG,
Fair Guide or any of its many other trade names, nor have we authorised them to use our name or
trademarks on information they send out to exhibitors. If you receive a document from Construct Data
Verlag AG which uses our name or the name of our events and which offers advertising space on the
Fair Guide website (www.fairguide.com), please do not sign the form unless you have carefully read
and understood the terms contained in the small print.
If you have any concerns about the distribution of such documents by Construct Data Verlag AG, or other
trade directory companies, you should contact the relevant authorities in your location. In Canada, the federal
is responsible for deceptive and misleading advertising scams.

which is an independent non-commercial website working to try and stop misleading and deceptive,
directory advertising scams.
If you have received any such correspondance, or have been deceived by any such mailings, we would like to hear from you.
