What space do you offer?
Outside 'open space' is offered in multiples of 3m starting at 3m deep by 6m frontage. Open space is an area, mainly on grass, marked out to your booked measurements ready for you to fill with your tradestand unit, marquee or display. We also offer alu frame units which are set up aluminium framed structures (a marquee) which comes with a roof, side partitions, night sheets and a banner rail. We offer alu frame units in blocks of 3m x 3m or 3m x 6m. Further details of pitch fees and space available can be found in our tradestand brochure.
Where will my pitch be located?
If you have a desired location you should make this known to the tradestand co-ordinator at the point of booking. You can find a copy of the map in the tradestand brochure. Your stand will not be confirmed until your site has been agreed and the tradestand co-ordinator will work with you to find the best location for your product or service. Please include as much information as possible with your application form, including pictures of your stand and products. Please note although every endeavour is made to locate exhibitors in their desired location this is not always possible due to existing trade and possible layout changes.
How much does it cost to exhibit?
The cost of your pitch will depend on the size stand you wish to book, to work out the cost of an open space pitch you will need to multiply the price of the depth by the required metre frontage. For example, it costs £104 per m frontage for a 6m deep stand so if you wish to book a 9m x 6m pitch you would multiple 9 x £104. Alu frame units are priced per bay and the Food Hall and Woodland areas are priced separately. Please refer to the tradestand brochure for full details of pitch fees.
