The January Furniture Show operates a zero tolerance of intellectual property (IP) infringement and all Exhibitors must have a legitimate licence to market their products or documentation to confirm they are the IP rights’ holder of all products promoted during the Exhibition.
Do NOT work with these companies: Expo Guides / Fairguide / Construct Data
Recently, third parties such as those above have been contacting exhibitors for entries into show guides. These companies are NOT part of the January Furniture Show and they are NOT working on our behalf.
Expo-Guide and Fairguide.com regularly publicise their services to exhibitors at events, primarily in Europe. These companies use a misleading form, which resembles an organiser’s Free Catalogue Listing Service. They invite exhibitors to sign and return the form for an entry in an on-line directory. Doing so contracts the purchaser into a three-year, non-retractable agreement. Non-payment is then followed by aggressive debt collecting by Premium Recovery.
We strongly advise all exhibitors to be vigilant against organisations such as these. Please be aware and read the small print details before signing any documents.
The January Furniture Show Catalogue will be produced by Furniture News. Other trade publications will contact you for information for their own Show Previews, but there is only one Show Catalogue.
Please contact us if you require any clarification.
