How much does it cost?
Stands start at £226.00 + vat per square metre, with lower rates for larger stands. The cost includes a full shell scheme; walls, carpet, and fascia with name board as well as all of the show marketing benefits.
The walls are velcro friendly light grey fabric panelling suitable for fixing of photographs and graphic panels. Panels are flush fitting and are 2.44m high and 1m wide. Corner posts are aluminium and are 38mm x 38mm. The stands do not have ceiling grids.
The hall is lit, however stand lighting is recommended to highlight your products.
If you have never exhibited at any trade show before, and you are within your first 18 months of trading, and based in the South West, then why not dip your toe in the water with our special Newcomers’ stand rate.
The stand cost is £448.00 +vat for a 3 square metre stand to include stand lighting or a plug socket. This is one year only rate for new emerging business from the South West including Gloucester, Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall, and it’s an ideal opportunity to test products that are new to the market. It’s been great to see a number of new fledgling businesses launch over the years and become established and regular exhibitors at the show.
Yesterday was really busy, same today, lots of leads. This is my first trade show and Hale have been very good at helping me prepare and get organised, they gave me some nudging and hand holding!”

This will become your entry in the show catalogue (minus the image). Also included are unlimited numbers of tickets for you to invite customers.
We work with you to promote your presence. We ensure maximum awareness to thousands of influential and decision making buyers.
‘Book your stand with Confidence’ Covid-19 guarantee
You need to book into trade shows, to meet new customers and show off your latest products and services, but what happens if there’s a local lockdown and the show is postponed? None of us can insure against local Covid-19 related lockdowns.
Book into one of our 2021 trade shows and we will limit your risk, in the case of a government enforced Covid-related postponement, to a maximum of 10% of your stand cost. We will offer this guarantee right up until the day before the show is due to open.
And in the case of a Covid-19 related postponement, we are also offering the transfer of the total of any deposit you have paid, to the next edition of the show, as an alternative.
You will of course need your own insurance to cover all other eventualities, as we cannot help with any other expenses you may incur should such a Covid-19 postponement occur, but we hope this helps you book into our 2021 trade shows, with confidence.
We’ve had a fantastic response, made some excellent contacts, and met some really interesting people. It’s been well worthwhile.”
