Besides exhibiting for the full duration of the IAA, suppliers may also make use of the exclusive opportunity to present their products for only four days (both Press Days + both Trade Days), to reach key trade visitors and reduce expenses.

Unofficial exhibitor directories

Berlin, October 26, 2018

Publishers of unofficial exhibitor directories target exhibitors in the run up to trade fairs, offering to provide them with entries in inferior, sub-standard online directories. Their terms may stipulate long-term obligations to pay several thousand euros – which are generally hidden in the fine print. Well-known examples are the directory "Expoguide" and the "International Fairs Directory". Letters and forms of these two online directories are shown here.

As the organizer of the IAA Cars and IAA Commercial Vehicles and publisher of the catalogue of IAA exhibitors, the VDA points out that we have no contractual connections of any kind with any of these publishers.

AUMA (Association of the German Trade Fair Industry) has been advising exhibitors concerned regarding unofficial exhibitor directories. AUMA has documented several hundred cases of unofficial entry offers for exhibitor directories. The information provided by AUMA aims to make exhibitors aware of the illicit activities of the publishers of unofficial directories and to provide assistance to the exhibitors concerned. We wish to draw your attention to the homepage of AUMA.

The production and billing of your official and obligatory entry in the exhibitor directory and other trade fair media will be carried out by Messe Frankfurt Medien und Service GmbH. To edit your entry, please use the login data sent to you after the start of May 2019.
