Exhibitor Information

Thank you for booking an Exhibitor space at the BCME9 Conference.

We've put together some information we hope you will find useful. However, if you have any other questions please don't hesitate to get in touch!

When entering the unloading area all exhibitors will be requested to unload their vehicle, move their materials to their exhibitor area (stand area TBC) and then their vehicles MUST be moved to a nearby designated car park before setting up their stands.

IMPORTANT: We are required to allocate you a loading slot for set-up. To enable us to allocate a preferred time please fill in the Exhibitor Loading/Set-up form (Please note: we can't guarantee you will be given the exact time requested).

If you would like your stand to be located/sited next to a specific exhibitor please email us your requirements. (Due to printing requirements we are unable to move the stall after the 15 March.  We cannot move stands at the conference venue.)

Loading

You will be informed in March which hall your stand is located in.

Access to Butterworth Hall is off University Road, at the side of Warwick Arts Centre and is sign-posted Butterworth Hall loading bay. This is on ground level. Please note that trolleys are not provided. Please be aware that parking on the road is not permitted. There is space for up to 8 vehicles next to the Butterworth Hall loading bay area. You are advised to unload into the Butterworth Hall and then move your vehicle to a designated parking area before setting up your stand.
 
Access to the unloading area for the Mead Gallery is adjacent to the Bus Terminus. There is gated access to the unloading area which will be manned during the advertised get in time. There is only room for up to 5 vehicles to unload at any one time so after unloading you must move your vehicle to a designated parking space to allow other exhibitors access to unload. A time limit of up to 20 minutes is in place for unloading so please let us know if  you anticipate needing more than this designated time period. Please be aware there may be a time delay as other exhibitors are off-loading but you will be kept informed of waiting time and advised when access is available.

The service lift for the Mead Gallery is located at the rear of Warwick Arts Centre and is accessible directly from Gibbet Hill Road and is sign-posted Warwick Arts Centre deliveries. When using the service lift, please ensure that no attempts are made to open the lift doors until the lift car has completely stopped. The Mead Gallery is on the first floor of the building and anything that is too large for the lift cannot get into the exhibition area unless it is broken down and built in situ. There is stair access for items that are too big for the lift and can be carried but access to this route needs to be arranged in advance, as it is a secured fire exit. Please speak to the Exhibition Organiser or the Venue directly. The dimensions of the lift are detailed below.
