Event Promotion

You should be inviting your prospect customers to meet you at itSHOWCASE and this is why…

1 – You can show them why your system is the best one for them.
2 – It shows you are confident in your product and know you can help
3 – It can speed up the process and save you lots of time while they shop around anyway.
4 – Can create a great customer journey

We have provided as much material as we think you may need to use in your campaigns. We’ve even generated custom trackable links you can use so we can tell you which companies have registered.  If you would like any other copy, artwork or material, please contact us and we’d be happy to help.

Stands will be positioned in rows with the displays side by side – there are no sides to stands and exhibitors are not permitted to create their own, thus obscuring neighbouring stands. Stand positions are allocated by the organisers for each event.
Please note maximum height of 2.2m.
If you have a non-standard stand configuration you must contact the organiser for approval.
The distribution of literature either by an Exhibitor, or his promotional staff, may only be done within his own stand area and not in the gangways, or any other part of the exhibition hall or surrounding areas.  Furthermore, the Organisers reserve the right to cease, or withdraw any promotional activity by any Exhibitor to which they object.

      Due respect and consideration should be given to other users of the venue.
      The need for operatives to wear suitable protective clothing relevant to their job, which includes eye, hearing and foot protection.
      The work area must be maintained free from general waste materials, which could hazard operatives. All waste should be disposed of in the proper manner.

      Electrical Equipment

      All electrical equipment must be tested in accordance with current legislation. All equipment over 12 months old will require a current PAT test certificate.

      Due to guidelines set out in current safety legislation, it is a requirement that Exhibitors ensure that each item to be plugged into the electrical mains supply should have PAT certification (Portable Appliance Test). Many venues now stipulate that without current certification, they will not allow the items in question to be “plugged in”. i.e. computers, laptops, monitors, and stand lights.
      Framework Media will provide access to one single power socket to each exhibition stand; sufficient to operate 1 PC and 4 low voltage stand lights only. Exhibitors must ensure that they bring their own multipoint extension lead if they wish to use multiple items. Exhibition stands must strictly adhere to these parameters, failure to do so could lead to a disruption of the power supply.
      Signs involving neon or similar gases are not permitted. Any special requirements should be checked with the Organisers and if approval is given, confirmed in writing prior to the beginning of build up of the exhibition. Wherever possible Exhibitors are advised to use Laptop computers to ensure that in the event of a power failure, your presentations will not be interrupted.

      Upon discovering a fire:

      1. Sound the alarm.

      2. Dial 999 to call the fire brigade.

      1. On joining a section each person with a mobility problem shall be allocated two escorts.

      2. During an evacuation one escort will remain with that person in a safe area. Care must be taken that this does not obstruct the main evacuation routes.

      3. The other escort will proceed to the exit and inform the person in charge or the Fire Brigade that a person with mobility problems requires evacuating.

      4. The designated person (security/caretaker etc.) or fire officer will then go to the location and escort the person out of the building.
