Exhibitor Scams

Exhibitor Scams

EXHIBITORS BEWARE

 

Please be aware that unfortunately there are unaffiliated suppliers that data-scrape our website to contact exhibitors, posing as official contractors for the event with Expo-guide and Fairguide.com being the most notorious. Unfortunately, this is common to the entire exhibition industry and not just Automechanika.  Do not respond to these communications as they can mislead you into a financial commitment.

We have listed our current official contractors on the exhibitor portal and they will use our official stamp.

We have been made aware by a few of our exhibitors that these emails are already doing the rounds.

Our advice is to IGNORE THEM COMPLETELY, and do not communicate with them in any way. Writing letters and responding to emails simply confirms that you exist and are available at the address/email address/number they have for you, and therefore payment can be pursued.

1) Report it to your local trading standards 

2) DO NOT PAY ANYTHING

3) DO NOT COMMUNICATE WITH THE SCAMMERS
