Exhibitor Marketing Info

Help us spread the word

As an exhibitor, we have created a suite of graphics to allow you to spread the word about the expo. This will add to the marketing and PR we will be doing right up to the expo. The more business people that come on the day the better for everyone in the room.

It would be amazing if we could get the delegate numbers to well over 3,000, with your help, we can achieve this.

Stand Artwork Sizes

If you are producing graphics which may cover the entire panel area please see the guide below.

Please note that interior stand sizes are always marginally less than the full metric size quoted because of the thickness of the walls. Please check with the organisers if in doubt.

As a rule of thumb order your stand graphics using this formula

Back wall - Take 10cm off the back wall width of the stand.  So, if the stand is 5m wide order graphics at 4.90m for the back panel.

Side Wall - Only take 5 cm off its whole length.

Fascia Size - Length of stand and 300 high
