Stand set-up & Breakdown

All the info you will need to know regarding the setting up of your stand pre event plus the break-down post event.

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.

The loading door at the UL Sport Arena is 3m in height. If this causes you any concern, please get in touch at your earliest convenience.

Standard set up time is Thursday and Friday 8.30am – 8pm. Early & Late access is possible by prior arrangement. If you require additional time please contact us as early as possible and speak to your Selfbuild point of contact.

Break-down time is from 6pm – 10pm on Sunday and by special arrangement from 8am to 12 noon on Monday. Please note that any stands built by our stand contractors will be dismantled on the Sunday evening.  At no stage will there be any break-down before or after these times. All stands and products must be removed from the hall before 12 noon. Any items remaining after this time will be removed and a charge made. Please get in touch if this gives you any difficulty.

It is the customer’s responsibility to build a freestanding wall or structure and not rely on other nearby or surrounding stands either for support or to provide a dividing wall. Space Only stands do not include any lights or sockets. Total Expo, our full services expo contractor has a full range of free build options to include branded walls and arches, storage rooms, raised floors, TVs and furniture available for this event. View and order here.

Shell Scheme stands are provided by our stand contractors, Total Expo. They use the Octanorm system to provide you with panelled white walls. This will also include a company nameboard, 2 spotlights and a double socket. Total Expo, our full services expo contractor has a full range of package upgrades to include branded walls and arches, storage rooms, raised floors, TVs and furniture available for this event. View and order here.

Creating a safe environment for both exhibitors, visitors and contractors is an important part of a successful event and is something we take very seriously. Please note that exhibitions fall under the Construction, Design & Management (CDM) Regulations. Exhibitors are responsible for appointing a competent contractor (which well may be your own company) and for ensuring that you have all you need to create a structurally sound stand. A detailed summary of Exhibitor responsibilities under CDM are available here.
