A top quality Shell Scheme stand is offered as standard to all of our exhibitors. It is characterised by rear and side partitions (where applicable). The shell scheme is 2.5m high.  The image below is an example 3m x 3m corner stand.

Please note that the useable panel height and width for graphics etc is indicated on the image and we would advise using our official contractor, Showlite, for supply of graphics. The internal dimensions of stands are fractionally smaller than the external dimensions, as follows:

  • The System is 990mm centre to centre of post
  • The post is 40mm so 990mm x stand width less 40mm is the calculation

We strongly recommend that you contact Showlite to check precise internal dimensions for your specific stand if you are looking to display materials which are close in size to the dimensions of your stand.

Your company name and stand number will be applied to the corner of your stand, in black letters on a white background.  

All Shell Scheme stand exhibitors must complete the Health & Safety Declaration form.

Please ensure you have read our Event Regulations and Security section which includes details about what is permitted on your stand and what is not. You should also be aware of the Fire Regulations which relate to materials on your stand. 

Trolleys + Forklifts

Trolleys are not provided at the venue, so please bring your own if you need one to deliver goods to your stand. Trolleys are only permitted on the exhibition floor outside show open hours for the safety of visitors.

Forklifts and pallet trucks are not available onsite.  If you require the use of a fork lift it will be necessary to hire the services of our logistics company, Premier Show Freight

Waste

Exhibitors and their contractors must remove excessive or hazardous waste at the end of the show, otherwise charges will be incurred. All waste, except for very small quantities of litter, produced by your stand must be removed from the venue at the end of the end of the event. The following charges will be forwarded onto exhibitors for disposal of any large items, such as boxes of literature, carpet (except scraps), graphics and stand fitting materials.

  • Boxes of literature – £6 per box
  • Furniture – £60 per item
  • Metalware – from £22
  • Pop-up signage – £35
  • Signage – £12 per panel

Hazardous waste is classified by the 2005 Hazardous Waste Regulations as: light bulbs and fluorescent tubes, electrical equipment and fittings, gloss and emulsion paint and their containers, cooking oils and their containers, aerosols both full or empty, oils and lubricants and oily rags.

Fixings to Shell Scheme Stands

Please do not nail, staple or screw anything into the shell scheme system.  The correct way of fixing your exhibits is by using double sided tape or velcro which is available from the stand contractor at an additional charge.  The cost of any damage caused to the Shell Scheme will be passed back to the exhibitor. If you have heavy products to display please contact Showlite for information.

Head to this section for more information and to order graphics or fixtures and fittings for your stand.

If you are planning any special stand treatments not already covered on this page, please advise the organisers as they may require a special license.

Please note: all sides of your stand that do not join to another stand must be kept open.
