Important Information – List Scammers

Some of the list scammers we are familiar with are:

ExpoGuide, The FAIR Guide, UTP Digital Directories (, (Construct Data Publishers Verlas AG), Euro Business Guide, Eu company Directory European City Guide, The Millennium Guide, The European Internet Guide, The International Fax Directory or IT&T fax directory Europa-Club & World Travel Register, 1st European City Guide, The Tour and Travel Guide, Verlag Fax Directory, Classified Telefax Pages

These companies offer paid visibility to many of our exhibitors in foreign exhibitor directories and often send along a pre-filled list information form. The international association of trade fair organizers UFI has taken countermeasures, seeking to prevent the operation of these companies through legal means and warns its member companies about list scammers. Many countries’ trade fair organizers (including Messukeskus) have published guidelines on their websites for those targeted by groundless billing schemes.

Messukeskus has no affiliation with this company or list, and we are unaware of any benefit or visibility this list could bring to the company. The best way to ensure the accuracy of the list is always to verify with the trade fair organizer.


If you are unsure in the future whether a list information request is related to your own participation in a trade fair, contact your contact person at Messukeskus. If you have already responded to such a scam information request and received an invoice, do not pay the invoice. You can send a message to the sender of the invoice stating that you will not pay the invoice. It is not advisable to react further to these invoices and collections. In practice, foreign scam firms do not have the means to collect sums for their groundless services. You can find more information on this matter from the eMessukeskus service, under Info -> Beware of Deceptive Trade Fair List Marketing.

Thank you for contacting us and informing us about this – to warn our exhibitors, we will continue to address this issue in eMessukeskus and in all our customer communications!
