Norges Varemesse warns against the fair guide/Construct Data Publishers Verlag.
CDV offers entries in its exhibition guides on the internet and employs the name of Norway Trade Fairs in its correspondence with exhibitors.
The company has utilised information from the Norway Trade Fairs web site without the involvement or consent of the foundation.
CDV has made similar use of data from other exhibition centres in the Nordic region and the rest of Europe, and its activities are a great annoyance to companies which participate in exhibitions in foreign countries.
The company’s marketing of entries/advertising in The Fair Guide clearly violates the Norwegian Marketing Act and the provisions in the criminal code on fraud. It also breaches the provisions in Norway’s contract law on what constitutes a binding agreement.
Any exhibitor who has been unfortunate enough to sign the CDV’s order form under the mistaken impression that it concerned Norway Trade Fairs’ own catalogue and/or that they were consenting to a free service should not pay the invoice. They can contact the team for the exhibition in which they are participating or the Norway Trade Fairs communications department on +47 66 93 91 00 for advice on their further course of action.
