New exhibitors applying for a stand
To apply for trade stand space at the show, please complete and return the following application form
Detailed information regarding the types of stands sold can be found in our new exhibitor trade stand booklet here.
- Please include photos or leaflets of your products to help us process applications.
- Returning an application form does not mean you have booked space and we aim to let you know between February and April if we have space to offer to you.
- We are usually oversubscribed which means unfortunately we cannot offer stand space to everyone who applies.
- There’s no deadline to applying for space but we would advise applying by February.
- We accept applications until we are fully booked, which is usually around the beginning of April.
- Existing exhibitors are offered first refusal before space is offered to new exhibitors in February, March and April.
Food trade stands
- Exhibitors selling food and drink to take home and consume at home, are classed as a trade stand.
- Free sampling is permitted but only 1 small bite size of food per person and small 10ml drink per person. Full size samples are not permitted.
- A catering concession may also be payable
Catering & Bar Concessions
- Catering for consumption & bar concessions at the show is not classed as a trade stand but as a catering/bar concession.
- Please be aware that we are fully booked for catering & bar concessions for 2020 show.
