To ensure every space is fully customised to each exhibitor’s requirements, this year we are booking space and furniture separately. Simply choose your furniture add ons when you book.

All exhibitors benefit from:

  • Listing in the Fair program.

Add-ons

Thinking beyond the booth? We have a number of creative solutions for you to connect and engage with families.

The Demo Space is a third-basketball-size court area sectioned off for ‘come and try’ sessions for little ones, sports demonstrations and shows. There will also be bleacher-style seats available for visitors to watch from.

The activity spaces are perfect for smaller group sessions, activities and workshops.

We also have plenty of marketing options, including placing an insert into the goody bag, running a video on the big screen, sponsorship options and content in the printed Fair program.
