If ordered before 12th June 2018 they will be posted to you approximately 1 – 2 weeks before the event.

If you have missed the deadline, badges can still be registered via the above along with any amendments and can be collected onsite from 2pm during build-up or from 8am on the show morning.

Yes, if you forget to bring a High Vis vest then they can be purchased from the busniess centre in ExCel.

We strongly recommend you take advantage of the extra time and set up on the 25th June (build up) to ensure that your stand is ready for show open. You can arrive on the 26th June (show morning) from 8am but please note that you will only have 1 hour till the show opens.

What is the process for sending deliveries to the show?

You must be onsite to sign for courier deliveries to your stand – the venue or organisers will NOT sign for these on your behalf and you risk having your delivery turned away.

You will also not be able to deliver any items in advance of the event.

Deliveries to the venue can only be made between:

14:00 – 20:00 on Monday 25th June 2018

All packages must be labelled correctly to ensure they are delivered to the correct hall and stand.

Can I leave my boxes to be collected on the following day after the show?

It is the exhibitor’s responsibility to remove all stand materials, packaging and waste from the hall. Any items not removed by 20:00 on Tuesday 26th June 2018 , will be removed and disposed of and the removal charge will be passed onto the exhibitor.
