Please note that no electrical fittings are included in the cost of your stand.
Although the Hall is sufficiently well lit for general purposes, it is recommended that you enhance your stand by ordering some additional lighting.
Ordering electrics and lighting
Lighting can make a big difference to your stand. Please order your lighting and extras online or with the order form from Showlite. The prices quoted are for orders received prior to 24 April 2020, after this date a 20% surcharge will be applied to the prices quoted.
Please note that power will be switched off 30 minutes following show close daily.
The following detailed information applies to anyone wishing to use their own electrical equipment or light fittings on their stand:
All on-site electrical work must be carried out by a qualified, competent person and inspected by the appointed electrical contractor prior to energising.
A temporary supply must be ordered for use during build-up and breakdown, if required. Use of the venue’s electrical sockets is not permitted and cables must not cross gangways. Once power has been energised during build-up, it will be switched off each night, including the pre-open night. If you need power overnight, you will need to order a 24 hour supply.
Power to your stand will be switched off 30 minutes after the show closes each day and will not be switched back on until the following morning. If you require 24 hour power, please arrange this with the electrical contractor. On the last open day, power will not be switched back on under any circumstances, due to the hazards presented during the breakdown of stands. If you need a supply beyond this time, please arrange this with the electrical contractor.
If you wish to pre-fabricate any electrical installations, connection to the mains must be carried out by the official electrical contractor.
All electrical installations must comply fully with the eGuide, which can be accessed at www.aev.org.uk/eguide.
