The UKBB Show has a number of Space Only stands, therefore is similar to a building construction site. Please ensure you wear closed-toe shoes at the very least but preferably reinforced toe boots. Under no circumstances can flip-flops or pumps be worn. Long trousers are also advisable.
(Shell Scheme stands) Yes, at an additional cost. Please contact the official contractor via your exhibitor manual. Contact details can be found on the order forms and deadlines page in the Exhibitor Manual.
All speakers will be sent a speaker manual detailing key event information.
As an exhibitor, you are entitled to FREE listings on the official Show Guide, however, to receive these FREE listings, you must complete your 100-word profile along with providing us with your logo. If you do not complete this form by the deadline for print materials, you will not be listed.
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 downloaded via the Exhibitor Hub under Marketing Materials.
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.
Please send these to the venue ahead of time and mark them FAO Abby Cairns. Deliveries must not arrive at the BDC before 5th October. Please note deliveries that arrive before this date will not be accepted by the venue. If you’re sending press packs, please also notify Abby by email so we can be aware of it in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
