Space only stands:
Monday 23 May                         08:00* - 20:00
Tuesday 24 May                        08:00    - 14:00

You may enter the exhibition hall from 08:00 though it will be necessary to wear full PPE in order to meet CDM regulations. Post 14:00 you may be in the hall without PPE.

All work set up must be completed to the satisfaction of the organisers by 18:00 on Tuesday 24 May.

The exhibition opens at 08:30 on Wednesday 25 May. Please note that deliveries cannot be accepted during exhibition open hours.

All personnel on-site during build are required to wear the appropriate badge. Badges will be issued by security upon your arrival on-site.

EXHIBITION BREAKDOWN

Detailed information about the close of the exhibition will be issued on-site, but at this stage we would remind you not to commence packing up your stand until the official close of the conference sessions on Thursday 26 May scheduled for 17:15. All areas are to be cleared by 20:00.

PPE will be a requirement for anyone in the hall.

Once hard breakdown begins any exhibitors remaining in the hall must comply with the wearing of hi-vis and safety/appropriate footwear. UNTIL THE END OF TENANCY.

*** CONSTRUCTION, DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT REGULATIONS 2015 (CDM)

In early 2016, the Health and Safety Executive confirmed its decision to enforce the 2015 Construction, Design and Management Regulations (CDM) in the context of temporary construction at exhibitions and events. The CDM legislation effectively lays out a number of statutory roles required to manage a piece of construction. The statutory roles include you as a "client" and describe a number of processes that you are directly responsible for including the appointment of competent contractors if you are a space only stand. Essentially, CDM means that exhibitors now have a more specific role to play in the management of their exhibition stand builds and breakdowns and more than ever need to be assured that their assigned contractors are competent and reliable.  

PPE
During designated days/times of hard build up all persons entering the exhibition hall must comply with the wearing of PPE that is personal protective equipment. Contractors have to wear hi-vis, safety footwear and if the need arises hard hats. If exhibitors need to access the exhibition hall during these times there is also a requirement for exhibitors to comply with the wearing of hi-vis, safety footwear or appropriate footwear dependent upon the level of construction in the Hall and related risks. During periods of "soft build" all construction will be completed and the wearing of PPE for exhibitors accessing the exhibition hall to "dress" their stands is relaxed.

UNLOADING AND LOADING 

Unloading slots for stands with a build requirement will be coordinated by the events H&S Manager in coordination with the EICC. The H&S Manager will liaise with stand contractors to coordinate unloading during build-up. Your slot will be confirmed to you once we have your Construction Phase Plan. You may request a preferred slot via the EICC form

Space only exhibitors Space only exhibitors

SPACE ONLY STANDS

This section contains important information about the design and build of your stand so please do read it all thoroughly.

Space only stands exclude walls, fascia and name board, spotlights, power, furniture. Please note that blue and grey carpet tiles are laid to the floor; if you would like to lay your own flooring you must lay a platform on top of the existing carpet tiles. When laying a platform or floor flats on the stand please consider disability access to the stand when considering platform height. Please speak to Carol at [email protected], our health and Safety Manager for further advice and assistance.

Build guidelines

It is the responsibility of the space only exhibitor to provide appropriate partition walls between themselves and their neighbours to a minimum height of 2.5m. Each dividing wall must be decorated on the reverse in white above 2.5m. 

SOLID WALLS

Solid walls to a stand are NOT PERMITTED on the perimeter of any stand which faces an aisle for more than ONE THIRD the length of the open side. To reiterate this - walling-in on any open side is only allowed as long as two thirds of that open side remains open or is made of transparent material or clear glazing, or the whole wall is stepped in by 1 metre. For example if any exhibitor wishes to have solid walling on a 6m open side, only 2m may be solid walling and the rest must be completely open. Exhibitors are aware of their stand location at the time of booking. It is responsibility of the exhibitor or the principal stand designer to ensure that sides remain open. An island site with four sides open for example MUST remain an island site.

MAXIMUM HEIGHT

The maximum build height in the show is 4m. No part of any stand may sit above or be flown above 4m (apart from flown light trusses). Two storey stands are not permitted. Items may not extend into the aisles or protrude above the maximum building height. Please note that stand numbers 40-45 are restricted to a 3.5m build height. This is due to restricted ceiling height in this section of the hall. Please refer to the technical floor plan. If you have any queries please contact [email protected]

RIGGING

Should you have any rigging requirements for your stand please contact Nigel MacLean at the EICC [email protected]

BANNERS

Insurance

1. Third party insurance

The Exhibitor is responsible for all claims arising from personal injury or damage to property arising in connection with the erection and dismantling of the Exhibitor’s stand and anything permitted, omitted or done thereon or there from during the period of the Exhibition or the set-up and dismantling periods caused directly or indirectly by the Exhibitor or any contractor, subcontractor, servant, agent, licensee or invitee of his or the act, omission or neglect of any such person or by any exhibit, machinery or other article or thing of the Exhibitor or in the possession of or use of the Exhibitor or any servant or agent of his. The Exhibitor will indemnify the Organisers in respect of each and every such claim and all actions, proceedings, costs, claims and demands in respect thereof. The Exhibitor must take out adequate insurance for all circumstances.

2. Insurance of exhibits - exhibitors’ or stand holders’ property

The Organisers do not accept responsibility for theft or any loss or damage from any cause whatsoever, in respect of any property brought to the Exhibition premises by Exhibitors or stand holders or the servants, agents, subcontractors or any other persons, and the Exhibitor or stand holder is required to indemnify the Organisers in respect of theft, loss or damage to property etc supplied hired or lent by the organiser (e.g. shell-stand, furniture etc).
