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 is 4m. No part of the 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.

Certificates of flame retardancy for materials may be requested on-site for inspection so should be available.

Floor covering

Please note that the venue is permanently carpeted with blue and grey floor tiles. If you would like to lay your own flooring you must lay a platform on top of the existing carpet tiles. This can be organised through the Joe Manby, please see form below.
