Safety on your site
Your exhibit area is an extension of your workplace and safety is an important aspect. When setting up look for trip hazards with your tents and other objects on your site. Take care with any sharp hooks, wire, metal or other parts of your displays that may cause a safety issue. Your power leads should be tested and in a safe condition. Don’t forget that children and older people make up part of the audience, and your site safety considerations should reflect this.
How do I pick up my passes?
Your exhibitor pack containing passes and other information will be available from our office on Wednesday 13th or Thursday 14th July.
If you are unable to pick up your pack on Thursday you will need to go to Exhibitor Gate 1 (Ulan Road – see the enclosed map) BEFORE 8am on Friday the 15th. Staff at this gate will be able to assist you.
Security is provided on site from the set up days and throughout the event. Sensible precautions are required by exhibitors with their stock or other items when unattended.
