Please note the following exhibitor information of Messe Berlin

Important Notice from Messe Berlin to Exhibitors regarding Unofficial Indices of Exhibitors – in particular Expo Guide, Connect Publisher and Fair Guide.

EXPO GUIDE, S.C. and Connect Publisher S.C., companies registered in Mexico, offers updated company information in an exhibitors directory for fairs and exhibitions under the reference „Data Review / Validity expiration”, which is fee-based. The fine print of these order forms indicates that upon their being signed, a contract is concluded for three (3) years that will generate costs of at least 1,000.00 € per annum. Recently the Construct Data Publishers a.s., registered now in Bratislava, Slovakia, is again offering a listing in its exhibitors directory “Fair Guide”. The approach is the same as with the “Expo Guide” and "Connect Publisher".

Since many exhibitors have been receiving these proposals, we wish to make clear that the registrations offered to be made in the “Expo Guide”, "International Fairs Directory"(Connect Publisher S.C) or “Fair Guide”are not entries in the official index of exhibitors for CMS. Messe Berlin is not connected in any way whatsoever to the publishers of the “Expo Guide” and Fair Guide”. We wish to indicate to our exhibitors that Messe Berlin either produces its catalogues itself or awards exclusive contracts for the production and marketing of such catalogues. Any publishing firms we work with will introduce themselves to the exhibitors as the exclusive catalogue publisher for Messe Berlin or the respective fair project. For CMS is our exclusive partner for the print and online catalogue the editorial team Virtual Market Place®

Once exhibitors have been admitted to a fair, their basic entry in the official fair catalogue is assured. Furthermore, all exhibitors will be contacted by the editorial team of Virtual Market Place® so that they may complete their entries in the online catalogue should they so desire. Please feel free to contact us at at any time should you receive a proposal and have doubts as regards the party submitting such proposal. If you have already signed an agreement with an external offer or in the erroneous assumption that this company is connected in any way to our official index of exhibitors, we urgently recommend that you contact an attorney prior to expiry of the period for revoking and/or voiding such contracts. For further information please also write to the AUMA , Association of the German Trade Fair Industry (email: On its website you will find further advice including a sample letter on how to react to reminders.

Warning – misleading emails from

It has come to our attention that a company of unknown origin has approached exhibitors on the VMP website and is offering a database based on VMP data. We wish to make it clear that this provider entertains no business links with Messe Berlin GmbH or CMS and is not authorised to make offers of this kind. Only Messe Berlin GmbH possesses rights to this database. Taking over key parts of the database violates the rights of Messe Berlin GmbH as producer of said database. We therefore expressly request that you do not respond to any of these offers.

Warning regarding the following service providers: Exhibition Housing Management (EHM) and Exhibitors Housing Services (EHS)

The service providers Exhibition Housing Management (EHM) and Exhibitors Housing Services (EHS) are contacting exhibitors, visitors and other participants of our events by phone or emails to offer hotel reservation services. Due to the timely proximity to our trade fair you might get the impression that these companies are official Partners of CMS and that hotel rooms are already registered. Due to several notices by our clients we wish to make clear that these companies are not affiliated with CMS in any way. Neither are these companies official partners of CMS, nor have we passed on your contact details to them, or made any pre-reservation in your name. Please be warned not to sign anything sent by these companies. Besides the costs for the hotel reservation they also charge high service prices. At the same time the strict and complicated cancellation policies they have makes it difficult to make changes regarding already made hotel reservations.

If you are interested in hotel reservation services please contact our partner.
