Deliveries/Pickups

If you have a courier delivering items for your stand please ensure that you have a member of staff on site to take delivery. With over 100 companies at the event we cannot take responsibility for ensuring it reaches your stand location. For pick up, a member of staff should also be on-site to ensure that the courier collects the correct package.

Space only

A Space Only stand does not have any walls, company name board or lights. However, it does come with a Double Socket. It is the customer’s responsibility to build a freestanding wall or structure and not rely on other nearby or surrounding stands either for support or to provide a dividing wall.

Shell Scheme

A Shell Scheme stand is provided by our stand contractors, ECS Ltd. They use the Octanorm system to provide you with panelled white walls. The stand comes with a company name, light and double socket, except in the Artist & Maker Village where it does not have a socket and in the Artisan Food Shop where there is no socket and no company name (due to Food Shop signage).

Creating a safe environment for both exhibitors, visitors and contractors is an important part of a successful event and is something we take very seriously. The SITE RULES for The Venue are available at the end of this document. Please note that exhibitions fall under the Construction, Design & Management (CDM) Regulations. Exhibitors are responsible for appointing a competent contractor (which well may be your own company) and for ensuring that you have all you need to create a structurally sound stand.

We regret that we are unable to take any responsibility for the security of valuables or other items on your stand or in transit. The venue will be locked at night and general stewarding will be provided. Small or high value items should be removed when your stand is unattended.

Theft

The risk of theft is particularly high before and after the show including breakdown. No valuable items should be left unattended. ‘Night screens’ are advised. They work on the “out of sight – out of mind” principle but are not a barrier to a determined thief.
