We have been made aware of a fraudulent company that goes by various names called INTERNATIONAL FAIRS DIRECTORY (IFD), INTER-FAIRS, EXPO-GUIDE, FAIR GUIDE or CONSTRUCT DATA, targeting exhibitors at trade shows around the world. This company will mail official-looking forms by mail or post, sometimes using the PIJAC Canada logo to mislead the receiver. The form will mention your participation in our trade show, and it will appear to have a connection with us, the organizer. It will be labeled as urgent and give a deadline for the return. This will appear to be a free online exhibitor listing service, but in the fine print, an exorbitant price is listed. They are leveraging the brand recognition of hundreds of trade shows they have no connection to and misleading people into thinking it is connected to the event they are participating in with no recourse for mistakenly signing the form. Do not complete and return any of these forms.
Be careful and read everything thoroughly before signing and returning any forms. We are in no way associated with any fair directories and have asked them to stop including our fairs, with no success.
Please warn your colleagues that may receive this kind of mail or info@ emails. If you are contacted by a company other than the ones listed below and are unsure of the affiliation, do not hesitate to contact someone from the PIJAC Canada team.
