Warning against scammers

Our – and other trade fair organizers’ – exhibitors are regularly bothered by inquiries from companies/publishers with addresses in Sweden, Slovakia, Austria, Germany and Mexico.
Sweden, Slovakia, Austria, Germany and Mexico, offering inclusion and/or advertising in their “trade fair guides” on the Internet and/or the opportunity to purchase access to a list of trade fair visitors.

AKKC distances itself from these companies/publishers, as they give the impression in their material that they have a close collaboration with us (and other trade fair organizers).
This is not correct.

AKKC has at no time entered into agreements with these companies/publishers and has never provided them with exhibitors’ names, addresses, etc.
They may have obtained the names from the lists of exhibitors that can be found on the fair’s website.
However, these lists generally only contain the exhibitors’ general contact information – not direct contact persons etc.

The companies/publishers in question also have extremely complex content, where the prices for the services (recordings) they offer are well hidden and extremely non-transparent.
As a result, many of our exhibitors have simply signed the contract without really knowing what they are committing to pay.
We have examples of exhibitors who have committed to paying more than DKK 20,000 over three years for an insignificant and probably worthless listing.

On several occasions, we have been contacted by exhibitors who have signed a contract and subsequently received an invoice.
We have advised them to simply throw away the invoice and subsequent reminders.
We hear from the exhibitors involved that they receive a reminder letter about once a quarter and this can go on for years.
We have never heard that the publishers have contacted the exhibitor in person to collect the unpaid invoice.
Probably because publishers are operating on the edge of good marketing practice.

Aalborg Kongres & Kultur Center distances itself from the companies/publishers described and their methods – beware!

Refreshments on the stand

Serving, serving and tastings – guidelines
Restaurant AKKC by MEST is responsible for serving and selling food and beverages in AKKC, and as an exhibitor you are therefore not allowed to sell food and beverages for consumption at the fair from your stand. However, food and beverages may be sold from the stand if the company has as an essential part of its purpose to sell food and beverages.
If you want to hand out snacks to visitors at the stand, Restaurant AKKC by MEST offers a wide range of snacks and drinks that can be ordered in advance of the event – see the link for catering under the ‘Orders’ tab.
If the selection doesn’t quite meet your needs, they are happy to help you with other requests and ideas.
