Your online profile acts as a virtual stand that will engage, influence and motivate buyers before, during and after your appearance at the live event.
The Standard Exhibitor Marketing package is included as part of your exhibiting contract. It provides you with a web profile page that you can enhance with additional content such as profile photo; company description; tags; products; social media links etc. Enhanced profiles are proven to increase buyer engagement, influence and motivation before, during and after the show.
Try to treat your online profile as you would your stand; dress it with high quality content, include different channels for buyers to engage with you, and promote your brand identity to make a positive first impression on buyers when they are planning their visit. Your online profile is likely to be the first point of contact with buyers and remains on the website for the full show cycle, so it’s important to add your content as soon you can.
Your online profile has been designed to encourage buyers to engage with you by traditional means, via your social networks or by using our email enquiry service. More channels to engage with you means more opportunities for you to generate valuable sales leads and sales prospects before and after the show.
Start small, but start now. We strongly recommend that you start to enhance your online profile as soon as you have received your Exhibitor Zone login email. You can highlight a selection of the products you’ll be exhibiting, new launches as well as excite and engage buyers via your social networks long before the show.
You don’t have to enhance your online profile, but that’s a bit like not dressing your stand at the show. With so many products and suppliers on display, buyers expect and want to preview as much as they can to help them decide which products to buy and which exhibitors to visit at the show. Buyers also use the website as a reference tool after the show.
We have given you the option to choose what details you include on your profile and to add them yourself in the exhibitor zone; you can fill out your address, phone number and website URL by login into your Exhibitor Zone and clicking on ‘My Profile’ on the left hand side task bar.
Please contact a member of the team by email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the contact you would like replacing and the full name, email address and phone number of the replacement.
There is a ‘Contact Exhibitor’ button on your web profile page that launches an enquiry form. The enquirer is asked to complete the form including; their name, email address and message. Your email address is hidden and all messages are checked before being sent to your email address
Please note: Enquiries made via your online profile are sent to the email address that we hold for the marketing contact that you have provided us on your exhibiting contract. If this has changed, please contact a member of the team by email at email@example.com. The message is also stored on your exhibitor zone under ‘Messages’ on the left hand task bar.
Your company description should inform customers what you do and how you do it. Describe your company and products clearly and concisely, using short descriptive sentences. Avoid writing your stand number, telephone number or web address, as these are already included elsewhere on your profile. The website will automatically pick out words to include in your Tags section, so make sure to use words, which accurately describe your products.
EXHIBITOR MANUAL & OPERATIONS
There are some forms that are mandatory and must be completed before the show. In addition, there are other forms that can help you personalise your stand at the show.

What are the conditions of entry at Autumn Fair?
There will no longer be a requirement to prove COVID-19 Status on arrival at the venue. Mask Wearing will also no longer be mandatory to wear masks within the event environment. However, we are a mask friendly event. We encourage all attendees to consider wearing masks, especially when in enclosed or crowded spaces.
Will social distancing be in place?
All legal limits on social distancing have now been lifted. However, we want our community to feel as safe as possible when attending the event therefore we have increased all gangways to 3 meters where possible to allow for additional spacing. We ask all our attendees to be mindful of the ‘Hands, Face, Space’ message as we return to events.
Will there be hand sanitiser available?
Hand sanitising stations have been installed throughout the NEC at high touch points. We recommend also carrying your own at all times as well. Exhibitors have been asked to supply hand sanitisers within their stand space. Additionally, hand washing facilities are available around the hall perimeters within the venue toilet facilities.
