Ensure that you have generated leads before the show even starts; research shows that a lot of visitors decide which stands to visit well in advance of arriving at the show. We’ve done the hard work for you and put together a range of marketing materials to ensure that your stand is on everyone’s ‘must-see’ list (and they won’t cost you a thing).
You must send in 2 logos: one jpeg and one eps which will be used across our promotions.
Show logos can be sent to you by our Operations Team.
All exhibitors are given a 100 word listing in the Show Guide. The Operations Team will request this listing in the run-up to the event.
Press packs should include a relevant press release, background on your company and good, appropriate, captioned photography. It is important to bear in mind that journalists will be interested in news stories, so brochures and other sales materials alone are not suitable. Ideally, all the information should be contained in a clearly labelled folder, CD or USB.
