For consistency, every stand offered at the Hampshire Business Show offered will be contained within a shell scheme.

Each shell scheme area is 2.4m in height with the width and depth depending on the size of stand booked. Each stand will have a fascia above the opening displaying the company’s name. For stands which have multiple openings, the most central fascia will display the company name with the others being left blank. It is also asked that nothing is hung from or placed in front of this fascia.

Stands are sold as space only and not include furniture and additional lighting. We can provide furniture and lightning through our partner using the booking form here.

We offer bespoke spaces/stands, feel free to get in touch here to speak to our team and find out more.

We ask that stand fittings do not exceed the stand structure which is 2.4m in height.

You are allowed to attach items to the inside of your stand as long as they leave no residue on the stands. We recommend only attaching light items and using Velcro to do this.

No, you must use the plugs provided on your stand by our power contractors (Exhibition Power Ltd) which can be booked through the form attached to your booking confirmation. Please note, it is up to the exhibitor to ensure their electrical items are PAT tested and safe.

Unfortunately the venue does not provide wired internet access, but there is free WiFi available.

There is no limit, but we recommend at least two per stand.
