Exhibitor FAQs

For all our expo’s you will be able to set-up your stand on the morning of the expo. We allow exhibitors to access the venue the from 8am / 9.30am. All stands must be set-up by 10am. The final details of set-up will be emailed to you 48hrs prior to the main event.

At all our events we ensure that there is free parking for our exhibitors. At most of our venues, exhibitors will have their own car park / space which will be clearly sign posted. We ask all exhibitors to unload their stands in the main car park and then move their cars to the secure dedicated exhibitor car park. We want to ensure that the closest car park to the venue is free and open only to delegates to guarantee that they have easy access throughout the day – which in turn benefits us all.

All of our stand packages include the following:

  • Table (either 4ft or 2ft depending on your stand package)
  • Table cloth
  • 2 Chairs (if a SME stand then 1 chair is provided)
  • Free electricity access
  • Free Wi-Fi access
  • 2 Lunch vouchers

Your lunch vouchers will be brought to your stand before 12pm on the day of the expo. Lunch is always served at our venues between 12pm / 1.30pm. Exhibitors will be given a lunch voucher on the day of the expo in which they can use to get their lunch during this time frame. There is a dedicated café area where you can eat your lunch.

One of the most important elements for having a successful show is pre-show planning and booth staff training in advance of the event. Download our exhibitor training guide for some essential ‘Dos and Donts’.

We would encourage you to bring as many staff members as possible to man your stand throughout the day. You will then have enough manpower to allow some staff members to attend the Speed Networking, Keynote Speakers and workshops. By having sufficient staff members at the expo you will also be able to take time out from your stand to circulate and speak to the other exhibitors at the event. Please be advised that we only provide lunch for 2 members of staff.

Yes all exhibitors can attend the pre-expo breakfast. We will email and ask all exhibitors a week before the main expo to see if they wish to attend the breakfast networking.

Once your stand is booked you have access to upload your own exhibitor details onto our website via the exhibitor portal.

Our social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are @GBEXpos. You can follow us via clicking on our social icons on this website.

For exhibitors who have listing in the show guide we need the 30 word description and company logo for the show guide no later than 1 week before the main expo. If the details are not supplied before then, you will not be featured and we accept no liability for this.

For all Platinum, Gold / Silver stands you have an advertisement allocated in the show guide. All ads need to be supplied 3 weeks before the main expo. If the ads are not supplied before then, they will not be featured, and we accept no liability for this.

The Show Guide is printed as an A5 full colour booklet. We ask that all ads are supplied in a PDF or JPEG format.

Platinum / Gold stands have a full page – portrait advertisement
Silver stands have a half page – landscape advertisement.

The floor plan is normally issued approximately 2 weeks before the main expo. We only issue the floor plan when we are either sold out or almost sold out of stands. The reason for this is because we allocate the stand locations based upon the packages that have been booked. For example, the silver stands will be located in highlighted areas of the expo and the Gold / Platnium stands will be located in the busiest areas of the event. We allocate the stand locations of all exhibitors to ensure that you are not placed next to, or near, a competitor. If an exhibitor is not happy with where we have positioned them on the floor plan, then we are happy to discuss this with them prior to the event and will move them if possible. We would need to be made aware of any issues an exhibitor may have with the stand allocation at least a week before the main event.

We hold pre-exhibitor networking for each expo approximately 1 – 2 weeks before the main event. The exhibitor networking is held online to ensure that exhibitors from different parts of the UK can attend. The timing of the exhibitor lunch is normally 11am – 1.30pm. We issue the invite to the exhibitor lunch to all exhibitors at least 2 weeks before the event.

The exhibitor networking is free for all exhibitors to attend as it is included within your stand package. There is no limit on how many staff members you can bring along.

The exhibitor networking is a great way for you to meet all the other exhibitors, partners and sponsors of the event. We give all exhibitors an opportunity to say what they do and the services / products they offer. It is always surprising how much business is generated at this exhibitor lunch before you even attend the main expo. At the exhibitor networking we will be giving training on how best to exhibit; there is networking, an inspirational keynote speaker and a live Q&A. We issue the invite to pre-exhibitor lunch to all exhibitors at least 2 weeks before the event.
