BEWARE of the Fair Guide
Reed Exhibitions and The National Hardware Show do NOT support the Fair Guide -- it is NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or NHS. Please be aware that you may receive solicitations for the Fair Guide from Construct Data, its publisher, which use the name of The National Hardware Show – do not be fooled. Construct Data currently operates out of Slovakia (it has previously operated out of Austria and Germany).
BEWARE of the Expo-Guide
Reed Exhibitions and The National Hardware Show also do NOT support the Expo-Guide -- it is NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or NHS. Please be aware that you may receive solicitations for the Expo-Guide from Commercial Online Manuals, its publisher, which use the name of The National Hardware Show – again, do not be fooled. The Expo-Guide currently operates out of Mexico.
For further warnings on the Fair Guide and the Expo-Guide, please check out www.stopecg.org (the website was set up originally to deal with the European City Guides, but it now addresses the Fair Guide and Expo-Guide as well as several other similar matters).
And please remember – the only directories and guides affiliated with Reed Exhibitions are those published by Reed Exhibitions, including the official show directories. If you have any doubts about a directory/guide solicitation using the NHS name (for example, if the solicitation requires payment made to an address in a foreign country), please contact an NHS salesperson ASAP.
National Hardware Show & Reed Exhibitions are not affiliated with the "Registry of World Business"
The International Association of Exhibitions and Events warns exhibitors of The World Business Guide, a product of International Directories Group, Ltd. of Madrid, Spain. The company invites businesses to list themselves in its database. The form used to gather contact information says in part, "(Updating is Free of Charge)" in boldface type.
However, embedded in a lengthy paragraph labeled "Order" - in very small type - is a binding three-year agreement that automatically renews every year for another year at a cost of € 995 (about $1,455). Dating and signing the Data Control form will bind you to the agreement.
The National Hardware Show warns exhibitors to exercise caution when dealing with or responding to solicitations from unofficial contractors offering services for the show.
Each year in the months just prior to the National Hardware Show, unofficial contractors target show exhibitors with email and faxes in attempt to solicit orders for show services (i.e., carpet, advertising, shipping, etc.). Some of these solicitations may bear the National Hardware Show name and logo with the intent of confusing or misleading exhibitors into thinking that the contractors sending them are associated with the Nation al Hardware Show. Exhibitors should report misleading or deceptive solicitations they may receive from unofficial contractors to National Hardware Show Management.
The National Hardware Show maintains a list of Official Show Vendors. Exhibitors are not required to use Official Show Vendors, but please be aware that outside contractors must be approved by the show and may require exhibitors to pay additional costs. Exhibitors may also incur other financial obligations in the event their designated contractors fail to perform.
