Considerations

Set Up

Creating a beautifully designed retail space on your site is encouraged.

As a package site your site includes all items listed in the ‘Site Build’ section. Beyond these inclusions, the setup of the site, including the costs associated, is the responsibility of the exhibitor after booking the site.

Site Access

Set up of your site must be completed within 7 days. Pack up must be completed within 3 days.

Marquee

Your site includes a 6m (frontage) x 3m (depth) marquee. The marquee will include walls at the rear and sides, but will be open at the front. If you would like a wall on the front you will need to advise the Show’s official marquee supplier, Harry The Hirer.

Marquees will be set back approx. 1-2m from the path, depending on the location of surrounding trees, the surface slope etc.

In some cases, due to existing Tree Protection and Structural Root Zones, weights will be used to secure marquees instead of pegs. The weights will be positioned on each internal corner of the marquee.

We strongly encourage any additional structures are ordered through our official marquee supplier, Harry The Hirer, and not personally installed structures.

If you intend to bring your own marquee, Event Management must be notified before your arrival on site and the City of Melbourne engineering requirements must be adhered to. Below are the rules to consider regarding the use of your own structure:

  • Front of House
    • Must be branded i.e. not generic marquee with no company branding
    • Must be in good condition
    • Must be weighted/tied down as per the Event Management specifications
  • Back of House
    • Must be in good condition
    • Must be weighted/tied down as per the Event Management specifications

Appropriate weights and tie-down equipment will be available at the Show for hire for a fee.

Grass Protection

As a requirement of the City of Melbourne all sites must have a grass protection method in place wherever foot traffic is expected within the site. Where a design is not used to protect the grass, exhibitors must use protective flooring from the Show’s official supplier, No Fuss Event Hire.

Your site includes flooring for the space underneath the marquee and to connect the site to the path. If you are intending to use any additional space or create a back of house storage area (pending Event Management approval), grass protection will need to be considered.

Requests for Additional Space

Please do not assume that the space outside your marquee is available for use, even if it was used in previous years. If you wish to request the use of additional space please submit your request to Event Management for consideration. An additional site fee may be applied for the extra space.

Additional Orders

Any additional orders can be ordered through the Show’s official suppliers:

  • Harry The Hirer – Marquee, Furniture
  • Garnet Electrical – Power
  • No Fuss Event Hire – Flooring

The contacts for each of the above suppliers will be available in the Exhibitor Manual.

Sharing/Sub Assignment of Sites

The Show reserves the right to limit the sharing or sub assignment of a site across multiple brands/businesses. If you intend or wish to promote multiple brands/businesses at your site, you will need to provide information to Event Management prior to the Show for them to review.
