All exhibitors at f.re.e have a basic entry that includes being named in the online catalog. All possibilities can be found in the section Entry in fair-related media .

IMPORTANT: Expensive catalog in the Expo Guide
The Mexican-based company “Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV” continues to contact f.re.e exhibitors in an effort to sell them an entry in the online exhibitor directory.

Please be advised that this company is not a partner of f.re.e and/or Messe München GmbH, and that an entry in our fair-related media has nothing to do with the Expo Guide.
