When calculating your stand costs please ensure that you have sufficient space to allow for all items which are needed including ground plates and tent guy ropes. For example – it is not possible to erect a 6m x 6m tent on a 6m x 6m site. Please check with your tentage contractor if you are in any doubt before reserving space.

If you want to secure a corner stand then please use the longest side of your stand as the frontage when calculating the stand cost. Please note that we cannot guarantee that the longest side of the stand will be road facing.
