The Global Coil Winding And Electrical Manufacturing Event

Scam/Fairguide Warning

Please also note that unfortunately there are many suppliers out there that data-scrape our show websites and contact exhibitors posing as official contractors of Hyve Group, in particular:


  • Data providers:,,,, and among many others are offering both visitor and exhibitor data lists for sale. Hyve does not sell data of any kind to third parties, these companies are not associated with Hyve.
  • Hotel agencies: Trade Show Housing & Convention Housing Service
  • Show Guide Companies: Expo-Guide, Fair guide & International Fairs Directory

As well as other companies selling staffing agencies, AV suppliers, stand contractors & graphics suppliers.


Expo-Guide and claim to provide services to exhibitors at events. Both companies use a misleading 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. Doing so contracts the purchaser into the three-year, non-retractable agreement. Non-payment is then followed by aggressive debt collecting by Premium Recovery.


Neither companies are an official supplier of any exhibition organised by Hyve Group! If either of these companies contact you and they claim to be working with any of our shows, we would suggest that you do not progress the conversation any further, and that you contact us immediately to inform us of the approach.


You can find further information about Expo-Guide and on the Association of Event Organiser's website.


If you fall victim to this fraud:

The AEO advise to IGNORE THEM COMPLETELY, and not communicate with them in any way. Writing letters simply confirms that you exist and are available at the address/email address/number they have for you, and therefore payment can be pursued.

  1. Report it to your local trading standards
  3. DO NOT COMMUNICATE WITH THE SCAMMERS even when they threaten legal action
  4. Optional: Complain to the receiving bank that their client Expo Guide (or equivalent), is obtaining money by deception.


These organisations have also been known to use debt recovery agencies, the same advice stands for these agencies.


We have a set list of trusted suppliers that we work with, their names and contact details can be found on CWIEME World, in case that you can't access the exhibitor portal, please contact us directly. If you have any concerns about the legitimacy of suppliers who get in touch with you, please feel free to contact us anytime.
