Dates & Times
DURING ALL BUILD UP PERIOD High Visibility PPE is required to be worn.
THURSDAY EARLY BUILD ACCESS For Stand sizes over 50sqm
This must be by prior arrangement and agreed in advance by the Organiser and Crusade Event Traffic.
Timed slots for Early access will be available on THURSDAY 12th October between the hours of 8am until 6pm latest. Exhibitors should contact Mark Haynes at Crusade Event Traffic Services on 07540236601 to obtain clearance and book an unloading time slot. This must be done no earlier than 1 month before the show opening date and 5 working days before the show opens. This will be allocated in an order relative to the stand location in each hall with stands furthest from loading doors given earlier times. Your allocated time will be strictly adhered to. If contractors turn up early, they will be turned away and told to wait until the required time agreed.
FRIDAY and SATURDAY BUILD ACCESS for All Remaining Stands;
A 2 day build up for stand decoration is allowed on Friday 13th to Saturday 14th October. Access into the halls will be from 8am until 7.30pm latest on both build up days.
Later working may be granted with prior consent but will be chargeable - contact the organiser to obtain authorisation.
Products can be placed on stands from Saturday 14th October onwards OR once stand building is completed, whichever is the earlier.
N.B. full security is NOT in place until the show opens and whilst build up is still on-going it will be very difficult to ensure your products are safe; timing of product placing should be considered in your build assessment and possible use of a night sheet is should be considered at this time.
BREAK DOWN & COLLECTIONS
Products can be removed from stands from 4p.m. on Tuesday 17th October AND NOT BEFORE! Contractors will not be admitted to the halls until 18:00 and can work overnight to clear stands.
Breakdown must be completed as quickly and safely as possible but no later than by 18.00 hrs on WEDNESDAY 18th October.
Any arranged collections must be notified to Crusade Security and the venue security. They are required to be off-site by 18.00 hrs on WEDNESDAY 18th October 2023. Failure to comply may result in a surcharge for storage and removal.
