1. Bogus Expo/Fair Guide letter

2. Hotel Accommodation Booking Companies

3. Companies offering SPATEX Attendee Lists

Please ignore any phone calls or emails from companies that contact you directly as they are not endorsed by SPATEX and we have no connection with them whatsoever. 

Expo Guide is a Mexican-based organisation that regularly publicises services to exhibitors at events, primarily in Europe. 
SPATEX does not endorse or support this company or their services.
Expoguide uses a form, which resembles an organiser's free catalogue listing service, inviting exhibitors to sign and return the form for an entry in an on-line directory, which contracts the purchaser into the three-year, non-retractable agreement.  Example of Expo Guide letter & form.
Expoguide is in no way associated to SPATEX Limited. Their form should not be confused with the SPATEX Show Guide entry or website forms for our event.
We offer all SPATEX exhibitors a FREE profile and listing on our website which is marketed and promoted heavily in the run up to the show. 

Hotel Accommodation we have a list of hotels where we have negotiated preferential rates for attendees to SPATEX on our Staying There page.  We do not endorse any hotel booking companies to contact Exhibitors on our behalf.

SPATEX Attendee lists – In the run up to SPATEX 2019, we anticipate you might be contacted by various companies so please be aware.  The SPATEX attendee list is ONLY available from SPATEX (to the current years Exhibitors), we do not sell our list to anyone.
If you are unclear about any products and services being offered to you in relation to SPATEX 2019, please do contact us without hesitation.
