How much does it cost?
Stands start at £175.00 + vat per square metre, with a lower rate of £152.00 + vat per square metre for stands of 18 square metres upward. The cost includes a full shell scheme; walls, carpet, and fascia with name board as well as all 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.
How do we promote the show?
We promote the show through direct mail, email, online & social media campaigns, advertising in key trade publications, local and national press coverage, telephone calls to buyers and face-to-face promotion at many UK events.
As part of your booking, you get an entry in the on-line exhibitor list, including a free image, a 42 word description, and a link to your website and/or Twitter account. 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.
BARBIE & Taste of the West members
Do you want to test the market with a new product, for a very special price? Newcomers’ stands are available if you have never taken part in a trade show before, and if you are based in the South West and within your first 18 months of trading at the time of booking.
We have 10 spaces for new companies from the South West that have never exhibited at a trade show before. These stands are 2.5m x 1m and come with either lighting or an electric socket. Call us on 01934 733433 to find out more.
I didn’t know what to expect at my first trade show but the show surpassed all expectations in terms of quality and volume. ”
‘Book your stand with Confidence’ Covid-19 guarantee
We recognise how hard it is to plan ahead with financial confidence at the moment. We appreciate that you want to minimise risk, when marketing budgets have been cut and every penny counts.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 were amazed at the amount of business leads and orders the show brought for our company. We would like to attend next year’s event and have a bigger stand!”
