Industrial property rights, counterfeits
The information sheet provides instructions on how exhibitors can safeguard their products, trademarks and ideas and protect them against counterfeiting. It contains answers to frequently asked questions regarding counterfeits discovered at exhibitions.
“Exhibition priority” has been requested for Interzoo, which defines the first day of the exhibition as the date of application for the subsequent registration of a trademark or design. Is your company traditionally innovative? Do you wish to safely present your new product at the next exhibition? Then protect your innovation lead against product pirates with a priority certificate!
External exhibition directories
The only official print and online exhibition catalogues for Interzoo are published by Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft Zoologischer Fachbetriebe GmbH (WZF). However, you are increasingly contacted by companies advertising their products and services under the name Interzoo without authorization. This falsely creates the impression of cooperation with and/or authorization by the Interzoo organizer (WZF GmbH), but the details are only copied from generally accessible sources (e.g. online and print exhibitor lists, catalogues). These offers particularly include entries in exhibition catalogues, Internet directories (e.g. FAIR Guide published by Construct Data Verlag AG), advertisements in exhibition magazines and products like mobile telephone hire service, exhibition stands, etc.
Please check these offers carefully, as the costs incurred can be substantial! If you are not sure whether a provider cooperates with WZF GmbH, please ask the Interzoo Organizer WZF GmbH or the Interzoo Exhibition Team at NürnbergMesse.
Please observe our "Warning notice"
AUMA, the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry, has published an information sheet on misleading offers for entries in exhibitor directories such as Expo-Guide, FAIRGuide etc. Please also refer to: FAQs on Expo-Guide, Construct Data
