If you've got any worries or concerns, please feel free to contact your local event organiser.

Frequently Asked Questions

What measures are you taking to make sure your events are save?

We are getting regular updates and advice from industry organisations and the Government. We are taking all the expected steps to ensure our events are safe for you to attend. We are following the All Secure Standards as published by AEO (Association of Event Organisers) and central Government. Our guidelines are currently up to date, and will be revised in accordance with new updates from the Government.

Do I need to wear a face mask as an exhibitor?

Yes! Everyone attending the event, including exhibitors, visitors, venue staff and event organisers must wear a face mask or face covering, unless you are medically exempt. If you are exempt, please take extra care to maintain social distancing.

How will you monitor social distancing?

We've made drastic changes to the format and layout of all our business expos to accommodate social distancing. All stands will be distanced apart, giving exhibitors more space than ever before. There will be fewer exhibitors at each event and there will be a lower visitor capacity at each venue, but we've lowered our pricing to reflect these changes.

Although our events will be smaller in size at the moment, we are planning to run more events throughout the year so you can continue to reconnect with local businesses.

Will my temperature be taken before I enter the event?

Yes! Everyone will have their temperature checked before entering the main event. If you do have a high temperature you may be asked to leave to ensure your safety and the safety of everyone else attending.

Am I allowed to hand out business cards and literature for my business?

Yes, as long as you maintain social distancing and make use of the hand sanitizer stations available. We also recommend taking photos on your smart phone of any literature you want to read to avoid taking actual printed copies away from the event. If you are exhibiting and have any questions or would like further advice, please call us.

Are there any restrictions for exhibitors?

Exhibitors are not permitted to hand out any unwrapped food (e.g. cupcakes or biscuits). Bowls of sweets or mints is also not encouraged. If you are exhibiting and have any questions or would like further advice, please call us.

Will food and drink be available at the event?

Yes we will be offering everyone light refreshments (subject to availability). Refreshments are not guaranteed, so we recommend you bring your own bottled water and snacks to help keep your energy up! We will be updating the status of food and drink at each venue as and when we have more information.

Can I cancel my stand booking if I have coronavirus symptoms?

As an exhibitor, you can cancel your stand booking up to 7 days before the event, however this will be subject to a 25% cancellation fee to cover our admin fees and any pre-event promotion we did for you. You can also choose to transfer your booking to another event up to 7 days before the event for free. All other stand transfers will be subject to our standard 10% admin fee.

Any exhibitors that express symptoms of coronavirus at the event will be refused entry and will be offered the chance to exhibit again at a future event free of charge.

Do I need to tell you if I can no longer attend as a visitor?

Yes. As we have limited capacity at our business expos, please let us know if you can't attend. That will allow us to monitor attendance and allow someone else to attend in your place.

What happens if the event is cancelled due to lockdown or COVID-19 restrictions?

If any of our events are cancelled or postponed due to coronavirus restrictions or further lockdowns, exhibitors will be entitled to a full refund, minus a 20% admin fee. Alternatively, exhibitors can simply exhibit at the event again in the future free of charge.
