Beware of Misleading Exhibitor Directory Advertising Offer
Dealer Expo advises you to stay away from unauthorized solicitations from
- Expo Guide S de RL de CV of Mexico City
- Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV of Mexico
- and similar companies.
Advanstar Communications Inc. ("Advanstar"), owner and producer of the Dealernews International Powersports Dealer Expo (Dealer Expo), has learned that Expo Guide S de RL de CV of Mexico City, Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV of Mexico and similar companies are apparently continuing to target Advanstar trade show exhibitors.
These companies offer advertising space in their Exhibitors Directory for Fairs and Exhibitions, using a form that includes the Dealer Expo® trade name, inviting exhibitors to sign and return the form for its directory. However, exhibitors who sign and return the form are then bound to a non-terminable agreement at significant cost for a period of at least three years and automatically renewing thereafter at the same cost, unless canceled by registered letter within the appropriate period.
These companies are not in any way affiliated with Advanstar or Dealer Expo, and these alleged directories are not distributed at the show. The use of Advanstar's event names and trademarks by them in their solicitations is unauthorized.
If you receive a document from Expo Guide S de RL de CV of Mexico City, Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV of Mexico or a similar organization which uses Advanstar's name, the Dealer Expo name or the name of one of our other events and which offers advertising space in the Exhibitors Directory for Fairs and Exhibitions, please do not sign the form unless you have carefully read and understood the all of the terms contained in the small print.
