Welcome to The Photography Show & The Video Show 2022 Exhibitor Zone.

You now have access to create and update your web listing for the event (see menu on left). You can add as much information about products, services, special offers, competitions and giveaways as you like, and at any time. Please add the minimum of a company / brand logo, URL and a paragraph about your organisation as soon as possible. REMEMBER, visitors will be interested in what you can offer them - be concise, highlight benefits and features, and don't focus too much on the company's history. 

Please complete your show guide entry by 25 August.

The menu also gives you access to show logos and banners, plus the operations manual.

*Shell scheme exhibitors who intend to carry out their own physical construction within their shell stand should notify andreahurst@fluid-events.co.uk so that suitable timings can be put in place.

Please note:

Passes: All space only contractors are required to register for contractor passes. All exhibitors are required to register for exhibitor badges – these are valid throughout build and separate contractor passes are not required if you have an exhibitor badge. Please order via the forms in the Order Forms section. 

Construction and dressing deadlines: All stand construction must be completed by midday on Friday – the afternoon is for stand dressing only. Contractors should consider sending most of their team home at midday if they are not required to assist with dressing - this will help limit the amount of people in the hall during this busy time.  All stands must be fully dressed and complete by 20:00 on Friday evening, ready for the overnight hall and stand clean.

Power: Space only contractors requiring power for stand construction purposes should order a temporary main from Creative Event Spaces. Stand power will be connected as soon as possible; it will however, be switched off each evening unless a 24 hour connection has been ordered.

Site Rules and PPE: Everyone working in the halls during the construction phase must wear appropriate PPE and have been inducted with the show site rules in advance. High vis and enclosed footwear are mandatory.

Please note:

De-construction timings:  during the first hour of breakdown, only stand undressing / exhibit clearing activities may take place.  Only small trolleys may be used and contractors are not allowed into the hall to start stand de-construction.  Stands may not be de-dressed until the show is officially closed.

Parking and vehicle access: Exhibitors should park in the usual car parks on Tuesday.  At the close of show, exhibitors needing to bring their cars to the hall for loading should return to their car parks from where they will be given priority access to the halls for loading as soon as all visitors have cleared the halls which can take up to 30 minutes. Exhibitors with vans or lorries should park in the North Lorry Park from 07:15 and return to their vehicle at the close of show. Vans will be given access to the hall as soon as exhibitors cars are clear and lorries will be given access thereafter. You are advised to park up in the Lorry Park early to ensure you are near the front of the queue and ahead of contractors. The lorry parks are also open from 07:15 for space only contractors.

Shell scheme stand cleaning: All shell scheme stands should be cleared on Tuesday evening during the de-dressing phase. If it is going to take longer, it is essential for all staff remaining in the halls to have been briefed with the Site Rules and wear appropriate PPE. If you would like to discuss clearing your stand on Wednesday morning, please email andreahurst@fluid-events.co.uk.

Security: Please remove all portable items of value as quickly as possible and do not leave stands unattended until they have gone.

Waste: All exhibits, stand-fitting materials, excess waste, flooring and carpet tape must be removed from the hall – nothing whatsoever may be abandoned on-site. Charges will be levied for clearance and disposal costs for anything left abandoned – including boxes of brochures.

Dilapidations: Each stand space will be checked once vacated to check that no damages have been caused to the fabric of the building; should damages be found, the cost for repair work will be passed back to the relevant exhibitor. Space only contractors are advised to report to the Organiser’s Office prior to leaving to arrange this check.

Site Rules and PPE: Everyone working in the halls after 18:00 Tuesday and throughout Wednesday must wear appropriate PPE and have been inducted with the show site rules. High vis and enclosed footwear are mandatory.
