The conference has allocated space for Exhibitors and Trade Displays. There is limited space and this will therefore allocated on a first come basis.

Manned exhibits will be located in classrooms on the main thoroughfare between the various lecture spaces, approximately 5‐6 per room.

The space for each exhibitor will be approximately 1800mm x 900mm in size. Signage will be the exhibitor’s responsibility.

Static display space is also available in the foyer, main auditorium and corridors. Corridor or auditorium static displays will need to be free standing, or a table for printed material can be provided on request.

Requests for exhibitor space should be with the conference team no later than 20 April 2018, but please note there is limited space, so you may not want to leave it to the last moment.


There are power points available in trade areas, but exhibitors will need to supply items such as power cords and power boards. These should be tested and tagged by an electrician.


There will be a wall behind each table. Ability to attach items to walls will be limited. Portable screens or monitors can be used but will need to be tabletop or have their own stand.


Each space will be provided with 6 small tables measuring 600mm x 450mm, and tables can be arranged to meet the exhibitor’s needs within the allocated space. Two chairs will also be provided.

We will provide a ‘back at’ clock for your use when the stand is unmanned.
