Caution! Providers of unofficial

repeatedly cause annoyance among organisers and exhibitors.

These companies send out offer forms to exhibitors at German trade fairs. The structure of these companies' forms is such that it could be mistaken, for example, for a free entry in the official exhibitor directory of the trade fair organiser. In fact, however, the small print results in high costs.
As exhibitors at our trade fairs, we would like to point out to you that these companies and their exhibitor directories have no business relationship whatsoever with GHM Gesellschaft für Handwerksmessen mbH and the trade fairs we organise.

We also would like to point out that concerning the trade fair media (trade fair guide, online catalogue, marketplace) you will only be contacted by the iba marketplace team: team@marktplatz.iba.de

If you have already signed a form or concluded other contracts by mistake, you should revoke this as soon as possible or react with a declaration of rescission due to error.
If you are not sure whether an offer is directly from one of our trade fairs, then simply send it to us by fax (+49 89 189 149 189) or e-mail (iba@ghm.de) with your contact details. We will then contact you so that you can be sure when you fill in a form.
