These give you and your staff access to the show venue, both for stand building, breakdown and when the show is open. Five are sent out to each company and more can be picked up from the Organisers Office if needed. They are not personalised and are sent upon payment of final invoice.
If you have a courier delivering items for your stand please ensure that you have a member of staff on site to take delivery. With over 100 companies at the event we cannot take responsibility for ensuring it reaches your stand location. For pick up, a member of staff should also be on-site to ensure that the courier collects the correct package.
Please follow directions from our staff who will try and get you into a good location to offload. Once completed, vehicles should be removed to the car park to free up space for others to offload.
