SIZE: (3m x 6m) – up to 9 x graphic infill panels plus everything in basic shell package.
Please note: the number of graphic infills depends on the number of open sides your
stand has – see under ‘Walling’ section below.
Walling – for basic and graphic stands
Each stand will have a minimum of a solid back wall. Depending upon the position of
your stand on the floorplan, it will also have 3, 2 or 1 open side(s). Open sides must
remain open and unblocked by a full height run of solid graphic display. PLEASE
CHECK YOUR STAND POSITION CAREFULLY ON THE FLOORPLAN - TO HELP
YOU WE HAVE INDICATED ALL OPEN SIDES AS BLUE DASHED. PLEASE CHECK
THAT YOU HAVE BOOKED THE CORRECT STAND LOCATION WITH THE
CORRECT NUMBER OF SOLID WALLS FOR YOUR DISPLAY REQUIREMENTS.
A solid walling effect created by pop up displays etc. on an open side will NOT be
allowed if deemed by the Organisers to have a detrimental effect on the show or
surrounding stands.
An open side can be partially blocked; however some transparent 'vision panels' MUST
be incorporated. The vision breaks do not have to be full height of the wall. However,
the overall effect must to be to allow visitors to see through the stand and assist an open
feel of the exhibition.
If you have any doubts as to the design of your stand please contact Nika Czoch on
0208 998 1053 to avoid unnecessary alternations on site.

IMPORTANT: Electrical Regulations – ALL Stands
Harrogate International Centre (HIC) will carry out ALL electrical work in the halls.
All electrical work must comply with the Regulations of the Exhibition Venue Association
(EVA), the Hall Owners and the Exhibition Organisers. Please refer to the eGuide
(Guidance for Working at UK Exhibition Venues) which includes Electrical Installations
and Testing. The eGuide came into force with the intention of providing a consistent set
of regulations for working within UK venues and can be found online at
www.aeo.org.uk/eguide. It should be fully adhered to. Harrogate International Centre
(HIC) is the official electrical contractor for the Show and they can answer questions on
Tel: 01423 537223 or email [email protected]
For your convenience, a service desk for HIC will be set up on-site adjacent to the hall
entrance during build-up.
ELECTRICAL RULES & REGULATIONS
As of 1st July 2012 a new set of electrical regulations became applicable within the UK event
industry and is now being adopted throughout all UK venues. A revised minimum standard
of electrical installation and testing has been developed to raise official exhibition hall
practices close to the requirements of BS7671 17th edition and therefore more likely to be
viewed by a court as compliant with the law. This minimum standard is now expected by
venues.
Further information is available via the eGuide at www.aeo.org.uk
How will this affect you?
Shell Scheme exhibitors
Swink Events has made arrangements with the official electrical contractor for the show,
HIC, to ensure that all relevant testing is conducted to meet the new standards. You do not
therefore need to do anything differently – simply place your order for power sockets or
lighting using the electrical order form at the rear of the manual and the rest will be taken
care of on your behalf. The additional costs will be covered by Swink Events.
ELECTRICS FOR SHELL SCHEME PACKAGES
Shell scheme packages will receive:
1x 500w socket and 2x spotlights if a (2m x 1m)
1x1kW socket and 3x spotlights if a (3m x 3m)
2 x 1kW sockets and 6x spotlights if a (3m x 6m)
as part of the package price – further details can be found listed under the ‘Shell Scheme
Packages’ heading in this manual. Inclusive within the shell scheme package provided is
an allocation of spotlights, dependant on stand size. Fittings provided within the
standard stand packages cannot be exchanged; all spotlights provided on this basis will
be fitted to the rear of the stand fascia. Spotlights provided with the standard packages
cannot be relocated within the stand area. Additional items may be ordered by
20
completing the HIC electrical order form found in Section D. If these are positioned away
from the stand walls or fascia, it will be necessary to order lighting tracks.
Quick reference guide to planning your power requirements:
Important Note! If you intend using a large quantity of electrical and computer
equipment on your stand a single 1kW socket may not suffice and lead to fuses blowing
resulting in your and your neighbouring exhibitors’ stands being without lights or power.
This may result in additional charges and cause frustration and delays on site.
To prevent this from happening:



Make sure you order additional sockets for large quantities of electrical
equipment bearing in mind that all appliances have varying power requirements.
Ensure you order the correct socket by checking the reference tag fitted to all
appliances.
The use of 4-way units is permitted, provided that only ONE 4-way unit is used
per socket and is subject to a maximum loading of 500w. Linking one 4-way
unit to another (‘Daisy chaining’) is strictly prohibited.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to discuss your requirements with
HIC who will be happy to advise on 01423 537223.
USE OF EXHIBITOR’S OWN ELECTRICAL LIGHT FITTINGS
We recommend that exhibitors use the official contractor HIC to supply any additional lights
(spotlights, fluorescents etc.) or sockets that you may require. However we understand that
exhibitors may wish to use their own light fittings that you regularly use at other events.
Sockets or Connections to Your Own Light Fittings
If you are intending on using your own light fittings systems such as on pop-up displays, it is
your responsibility to ensure that the system, or any pre-fabricated wiring, complies with the
EVA regulations, the eGuide and has been inspected and tested by a competent electrician
prior to use. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT ALL CONNECTIONS TO YOUR OWN
FITTINGS MUST BE CARRIED OUT BY HIC YORKSHIRE. You should also carry a
quantity of spare lamps/bulbs, as maintenance to your own light fittings is NOT included in
any socket or connection costs.
All your own fittings must have a short tail (1.5mm2 cable or flex), together with a
connector block and insulated enclosure box to each connection. Failure to comply with
these requirements will result in additional charges on site.
Before ordering the socket or connection for your own lights, please consider the following, to
ensure that you order the correct supply:


When using lights on a track, add the total wattage of all the lamps together to give
you the correct rated socket or connection.
Individual light fittings can be pre-wired together prior to arriving at HIC, provided a
qualified electrician carries it out. However, you should give careful consideration as
to how you fix your fittings to your stand once they have been pre-wired. Again, add
the total wattage of all the lamps together to give you the correct rated socket or
connection.
21

If your light fittings cannot be pre-wired, you will need to order an individual socket or
connection for each fitting.
Exhibitor’s Own Lights
Please ensure that your lights are tested prior to bringing them on site, together with
documentary proof as spot checks may be carried out on site.
Spare lamps should be supplied, as maintenance is not included with client’s own lights.
Lighting connections must not exceed 1000w. The maximum load of 1kw is permitted on
each lighting circuit – multiple light fittings &/or 4-way extension leads must not be
plugged into 2kw or 3kw sockets. You need to order sufficient individual sockets for your
lights.
Lamps and appliances with high surface temperatures should be guarded and used a
minimum of 300m away from combustible materials.
Cables and Wiring








All wiring must be carried out in PVC Twin and Earth cable, not less than 1.5mm2.
All wiring below 2.5m must be mechanically protected by high impact conduit.
The maximum length of the flexible cord on an appliance or 4-way trailing lead is
2m.
Do not coil up long cables: unroll them to ensure they do not heat up or have
them cut to the correct length (the maximum length for a cable is 2m). To avoid
these problems, ensure that the location of the socket/s is are required for your
stand layout by sending a plan IN ADVANCE (using the reverse of Electrics
Form) so that HIC can fit socket/s in the required location to avoid the need for
daisy chaining or long-lead lengths.
Multi-way plug-in type and bayonet adaptors are not permitted.
Plug tops must comply with British Standard BS1363 and be suitably fused.
Not more than one flexible cord should be connected to one plug top.
All truss and metal framing shall have an independent earth bond and back to the
main earth supply on the fuse board.
4-way trailing leads
Only one 4-way unit can be used per socket and is subject to a maximum loading of
500w.
Halogens
The use of halogens can cause overloading issues and fire safety risks as these lights
become very hot. It is imperative that if you wish to use your own light fittings, you
contact HIC in advance to discuss your power requirements and that you carefully
arrange lights so that they cannot cause a fire risk. We recommend avoiding halogen
lights and using low-power alternatives instead.
Low Voltage Lighting
Transformers must be fused on both the primary and secondary sides.
Consideration should be given to the sitting of your transformers, to avoid volt drop and
they must be well ventilated and easily accessible.
22
Sockets
Sockets used for clients own lights must not exceed 1000w.
Ensure that you order the correct socket by checking the reference tag fitted to all
appliances. Specifying incorrect sockets will result in additional costs and delays on site.
All sockets are single conventional British metal clad outlets.

Stand Dressing
Important: If you intend to use Pop-ups as part of your stand display, these must

Any unsightly cabling or wiring at the back of any pop up wall or display,
especially the side-on view between the pop-up and the shell wall must be neat or
hidden from view.
Open sides must remain open and unblocked by a full height run of solid graphic
display. PLEASE CHECK YOUR STAND POSITION CAREFULLY ON THE
FLOORPLAN - TO HELP YOU WE HAVE INDICATED ALL OPEN SIDES AS BLUE
DASHED. PLEASE CHECK THAT YOU HAVE BOOKED THE CORRECT STAND
LOCATION WITH THE CORRECT NUMBER OF SOLID WALLS FOR YOUR DISPLAY
REQUIREMENTS.
A solid walling effect created by pop up displays etc. on an open side will NOT be
allowed if deemed by the Organisers to have a detrimental effect on the show or
surrounding stands.
An open side can be partially blocked, however some transparent 'vision panels' MUST
be incorporated. The vision breaks do not have to be full height of the wall. However,
the overall effect must to be to allow visitors to see through the stand and assist an open
feel of the exhibition.
Stand Insurance
Whilst the Organisers will take every precaution to protect property during the event, they
will not be held responsible for any loss or damage caused directly or indirectly by the

omission or neglect of any such person or by any exhibit, machinery etc.
26
Each exhibitor is also responsible for all claims arising from personal injury or damage to
property during the periods of build-up, show open and break-down.
Please be warned that standard company policies are often not valid when
participating at an exhibition. We strongly recommend that you ensure your
insurance cover is sufficient and covers you fully in the event of a claim.
IMPORTANT: Exhibitors and their contractors shall take out and maintain at all
times public liability and employee liability insurance against personal injury,
death and damage to or loss of property for a limit of indemnity not less than
£2,000,000 sterling (or its equivalent). The organiser shall be entitled to inspect the
exhibitor’s public liability policy, which the exhibitor shall make available upon
request.
In addition to the above insurance requirement, exhibitors and their contractors in the

Contingent public liability (in excess of that already held by the exhibitor) whilst at
the exhibition centre
Exhibitors must ensure that any appointed contractor has adequate and
comprehensive employee and public liability insurance cover for the event.
The Financial Services Authority regulations do not permit us to advise you directly on
any insurance matter. However we wish to draw to your attention to insurance for
Exhibitors offered by Hiscox. Please contact Hiscox to discuss Exhibitors Insurance. You
are under no obligation to purchase such insurance from Hiscox and may therefore
choose to seek insurance from other providers; however it is a compulsory

SECTION C ~ COMPULSORY REGULATIONS &
EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
Disability and Equality Act 2010
Exhibitors participating at Convergence Summit North 2015 are required to meet their
legal responsibilities under the Equality Act 2012 (replacing the former DDA – Disability
Discrimination Act 1995).
There are about 10m disabled people in the UK. Many of their disabilities are hidden –
for example epilepsy, diabetes and mental ill health - so it is best to plan to meet the
needs of a broad community. Reasonable adjustments for, and a positive attitude
towards disabled people from our exhibitors will enhance the overall shared
Convergence Summit North experience and benefit everyone.
Access for disabled people is not only about physical access to buildings for wheelchair
users but also includes access to written information for people with visual impairments
and access to the same standard of service for all. It is important to take account of
health and safety legislation, which has primacy over the disability regulations.

“Reasonable adjustments” can be physical changes to your exhibition stand, providing
equipment or changing practices and procedures to be more inclusive. For industry best
practice guidelines go to http://www.aeo.org.uk/files/eguide_july_14.pdf
When applied to events, compliance with the Act, to ensure that disabled people are not
treated less favourably than people who are not disabled, can be broken down into the

It is the policy of Swink Events to endeavour to seek the co-operation of all concerned in
order to achieve the highest standards, in all aspects of health & safety.
Swink Events and Harrogate International Centre, within the scope of their own laid

employees are provided with suitable and sufficient information, instruction, training and
supervision to ensure not only their own health and safety but also that of others working
or attending the vicinity.
33
Exhibition stands are considered to be a workplace and it is therefore your responsibility

Compulsory Show & Venue Regulations
DRINK & DRUGS
The abuse of alcohol, drugs and other substances can affect work performance and
safety. Any person found to be under the influence of alcohol, drugs or other substances,
which in the opinion of the Organisers and their representatives constitutes a danger to
themselves or any other person using the venue, will be removed from the venue by
security and if necessary further action will be taken to remedy the situation.
ELECTRICAL REGULATIONS
See pages 20 - 23 for important guidance on rules and regulations governing electrical
installations, power and lighting on your stand.
FIRE RESISTANT MATERIALS
All work must be carried out using non-flammable materials. The use of softwood board
is prohibited except for platforms and counter tops, in which instances it must be
impregnated to render them fireproof. In particular we would like to draw attention to
pegboards, which should be supplied as Class 1 flame retardant board or treated with an
acceptable Class 1 paint. The use of polystyrene and Perspex is prohibited.
FOOD & HYGIENE REGULATIONS
It is essential that any stand providing refreshments to persons visiting exhibitions
comply with the provision of the Food Safety Act 1990 and Food Hygiene (Amendment)
Regs 1990. If you intend to provide corporate hospitality on your stand, there are
various legally obliging and stringent health and safety rules and regulations that need to
be adhered to when serving food and drink for public consumption. This includes
completing and returning a HACCP (Hazard Critical Control Points) Form to the
Organisers along with a detailed Risk Assessment. For these reasons, if you intend
serving perishable food we advise you use the official venue caterers only.
Furthermore, as the in-house venue caterers have sole right to supply all food and
drinks consumed on site, permission will need to be obtained from the Organisers
to bring in any outside catering and a corkage fee will apply.
Law requires the following facilities:





A wash hand basin, together with a supply of hot and cold water at a suitable
controlled temperature, a supply of soap, clean towels and a nail brush.
A sink together with a supply of hot water and cold water. Arrangements may be
made to use the facilities on site; by prior arrangement and only if these facilities
are accessible.
In food preparation areas the floor covering must be smooth, impervious and
easy to clean. In this instance carpet is not satisfactory.
Hot water for sinks and basins must be provided from an immersion heater or
instantaneous heater.
A first Aid Kit containing sufficient supply of suitable bandages, dressing,
including waterproof adhesive dressings, must be provided.

All persons engaged in the handling of open food must wear clean, washable
over clothing.
Open food displayed for human consumption must be adequately screened
against the risk of contamination by persons visiting the stand.
It is essential that all raw and cooked foods are separately handled, stored and
prepared, so as to avoid any risk of cross contamination.
Certain foods must be kept at a controlled temperature if the product contains
cooked products such as meat, fish, eggs, cheese or vegetables.
The Food Hygiene (amendment) Regulations 1990 require foods such as soft
cheese, sandwiches and cream cakes to be stored at temperatures not
exceeding 8°c, unless stated otherwise by the manufacturer. Other cooked
foods, like pies, pasties, and sausage rolls and smoked or cured fish, if being
served hot that day, must be kept at a temperature of not less than 63°c.
Sandwiches, which contain any of the relevant foods, must be kept at or below
8°c unless they are served within 4 hours or completion of preparation.
GANGWAYS
All gangways at the exhibition must remain unobstructed and accessible at all times.
Under no circumstances will any part of your stand, furniture or exhibits etc. be allowed
to project beyond the boundary of your stand, with the exception of the organiser’s shell
scheme name boards which may project into the gangways. Exhibitors should only work
within the confines of their stand. The exhibitor should not engage in any activity or
employ any person, liable to create unreasonable congestion in the aisles in the opinion
of the Organisers. No doors or windows shall open outwards directly onto a gangway.
Freedom of all main and cross gangways is essential for the build-up and breakdown of
the exhibition. These gangways should remain as free as possible from any sort of
equipment or materials during these periods. Additionally, emergency gangways will be
in operation during the build-up and breakdown, which must remain completely clear.
HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES
The control of substances hazardous to Health regulations (COSHH) is intended to
address the problem of ill health caused by exposure to hazardous substances at work.
The definition of a substance that is hazardous to health is any substances that have by
law, to be labelled as ‘very toxic’, toxic, harmful, irritant or corrosive.
Substances for which a maximum exposure limit (MEL) or an occupational exposure
standard (OES) has been set and harmful micro-organisms, substantial quantities of
airborne dust or other substances which create comparable health hazards. If you, or
any of your contractors, intend to use any substance which is covered by the above
criteria we require that you carry out an assessment, in writing, under the regulations and
submit the assessment to the Organisers at least 30 days prior to the substance being
used on site.
HEALTH & SAFETY DECLARATION
The current Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations (reg.9) requires cooperation and co-ordination with all parties whilst sharing a workplace. In order to assist
this process, please complete the form at the back of this manual.
The form will provide Swink Events with the contact details for the person responsible for
Health & Safety on your stand, as well as the details of your principal stand contractor
and help show that you have complied with the law with regard to appointing a
contractor. Please also indicate on the form if any aspects of your participation require
38
special monitoring or consideration in order for Swink Events to provide you with any
relevant information.
Exhibitors are advised that the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 requires that any
equipment being operated or demonstrated shall be inherently safe or not create a
hazard to the demonstrator or audience.
HEAVY LIFTING
In the interest of health and safety, the officially appointed lifting contractor (WES
Logistics) is the only company permitted to operate mechanical and other cargo handling
equipment in the halls and outside the unloading areas. The self-drive use of lorry
mounted “HIAB” type cranes and lifting equipment will not be permitted within the halls.
LADDERS
Ladders must be used safely in the halls at all times and may need securing at the top to
avoid falls.
LIFTING/PACKING CASES
There are numerous guidelines involved with the movement of packing cases:

Forklift trucks must be used safely at all times and only by the approved lifting
contractor (WES Logistics).

Work areas should be maintained free from general waste and packaging
materials, which could hazard operatives.

Packing cases must not be allowed to obstruct gangways, passageways and fire
exits.

Nails etc must not be left protruding from any packing case or material.

All packing cases and material must be removed from the exhibition halls as soon
as possible.
MANUAL HANDLING GUIDELINES
During your participation at Convergence Summit North 2015, especially during the build
up of the event, you or a member of your staff may need to lift or move items. The
Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (as amended) establish a clear hierarchy
of measures for dealing with risks from manual handling, as outlined below. Please read
carefully and circulate this information to your staff prior to the event.
1. Avoid hazardous manual handling operations so far as reasonably practicable;
2. Assess any hazardous manual handling operations that cannot be avoided; and
3. Reduce the risk of injury so far as reasonably practicable
39
Before you start









Think about the job
 Does it need carrying, or can a trolley or
other equipment be used instead
Think about what you are going to do before
you do it:
 Where is the load going?
 Does it need more than one person to lift it
safely?
 Is there enough room?
 How can you avoid having to twist when
lifting or putting the load down?
Think about you
 Are you dressed for the job? Tight clothing
can restrict movement. High heels are
never suitable.
 Do you have a health problem that might
make you vulnerable to injury
If you are not sure of how heavy a load is,
test it out before you try to lift it. Gently rock the
load to test the weight and its distribution
If you have not been trained, you should
not lift >15Kg without advice from your local
Manual Handling Assessor
Remove any obstructions/tripping hazards
from the route
Work out where and how to take a rest if
moving a heavy load over a long distance
Are there any sharp edges? If so, then you
may need to wear gloves to protect yourself
If load is too bulky, look at ways in which to
break it down

Lifting technique


Place you feet apart to make a stable base
for lifting
Placing one leg forward in front of the other
will help improve balance and control
If you have to reach out to the load, try sliding
it towards you before attempting to lift it
If lifting from a low height, bend your knees, NOT your
back

Stand correctly, keeping your back straight
and your chin tucked in

Keep your shoulders level and facing the
same direction as your hips

Lift smoothly, avoiding jerking movements

Lift your head first – your back then
straightens automatically

Grip the load with your palms, rather than just
your fingers – If you need to change your
grip, rest the load first.

Keep your arms close to your body to help
support the load
Do not allow the load to obstruct your view – seek
assistance if it is too large.
40
Moving the load

When carrying, keep the load as close to
the body as possible

Keep the heaviest side of the load closest
to your body

When pulling or pushing, use your body
weight to move the load – if possible, let
the momentum of the load do some of the
work e.g. when pushing trolleys

When pulling, keep your back straight and
your arms as close to your body centre line
as possible
 Avoid twisting your body when turning
RISK AREAS
Below are listed some areas that have been shown to cause hazards in the past. It is by
no means an exhaustive list, but it should assist in the preparation of your Risk
Assessment.
All the below points should be drawn to the attention of your staff and contractors.
Please give the following your due thought and consideration whilst onsite, and
incorporate them in your main Risk Assessment.

Understand the Fire and Emergency Procedures and notify your staff of the
location of the First Aid Centre.

Lifting operations must only be carried out by the appointed show contractor
(WES Logistics).

All portable tools are to be PAT tested prior to coming onsite. Only use
machinery, especially bench saws, with correct guards fitted. Portable power
tools and equipment must have the minimum length of trailing lead if fitted, which
must be protected from damage and not left so as to cause a floor hazard. Tape
down trailing cables.

Children under the age of 16 are not allowed onsite during build-up and
breakdown under any circumstances (please note that they are also not allowed
during the open hours as it is a business event).

Schedule a working rota to prevent tiredness and accidents.

Take note of the COSHH precautions required for certain solvents e.g.
adhesives, paints and cleaners.

During the construction of any stand structures, any work at height must be
carried out using the appropriate equipment, properly stabilised in accordance
with HSE guidelines – such as the use of stepladders.
41

Contractors must wear suitable protective clothing relevant to their job, which
includes head, eye, hearing, foot and hand protection.

The safe use or storage of flammable liquids and substances, and isolation from
waste and other risk areas is important. Chemicals and flammable liquids must
be safely removed after use by the user and not placed in general rubbish bins or
skips.

The work area must be maintained free from general waste materials, which
could pose a hazard to operatives. All waste should be disposed of in the proper
manner. Do not block any of the halls doors, emergency gangways or
emergency exits.

Any fire extinguisher placed on your stand by the Fire Officer shall be under the
full control of your stand safety representative(s), and must not be obstructed.

Be aware of vehicle movements within the halls during build-up and breakdown.
Forklift trucks and trolleys will be operating within the halls.

All materials used in construction of your stand must be flameproof to BS 478 as
relevant.
SMOKE MACHINES
Please be aware that the use of smoke machines is prohibited at the venue.
STAND CONSTRUCTION
Exhibitors are reminded that it is their responsibility to ensure that nominated contractors
abide by all the regulations as contained in this section together with all requirements
that are relevant to their operation.
STAND DRESSING
Artificial plants and flowers are often combustible and can give off poisonous fumes: they
must not be used as stand dressing. Silk flowers are acceptable, providing they have
been fireproofed to the appropriate standards and are marked as such. Cellulose paints
are flammable and must not be used in stand dressing. Textile fabrics used for any stand
dressing must be flameproof, or already treated with an approved chemical when
purchased, in accordance with BS 5438 (1976). Certain fabrics such as wool, twill or felt
need not be proofed.
STROBE LIGHTING & LASERS
The use of strobe type fittings for effect lighting and lasers is prohibited.
UNDERTAKING YOUR RISK ASSESSMENT
It is a legal requirement that every exhibitor undertakes their own suitable and sufficient
assessment of the significant risk to health and safety to their employees and persons
42
not in their employment arising out of or in connection with the conduct or undertakings
at Harrogate International Centre. The Risk Assessment shall cover as a minimum (but
not limited to) the build-up, the open period and break down of their event. Take into
account the work practices and exhibits – you need to include the open period of the
show, taking into account the activities you and your staff will be doing on the stand and
any potential risk to visitors e.g. using and displaying electronic equipment and ensuring
all trailing cabling is hidden or suitably strapped down so as not to pose a trip hazard. A
template Risk Assessment form has been included at the rear of the manual. See below
for guidelines in helping you carry out your assessment.
IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE: A risk assessment form completed with the blanket
wording 'no risks' throughout will NOT be accepted as an adequate and accurate
assessment of the potential hazards that may be involved in erecting your stand
and you will be required to re-submit your form. However simple your stand
erection is and the perceived risks insignificant, we require something in writing from you
that shows that you have given due thought to the construction process of your stand
and the activities carried out on your stand during the event and any possible risks
involved - be they very minimal or highly unlikely. For any possible future reference, this
is as much for your benefit as ours.
We ask for nothing complicated, just some common sense listing of obvious things such
as trip hazard from boxes, loose cabling, and secure panel erection etc.
If you have any queries as to what is required please contact Nika Czoch on
Tel: 0208 998 1053 or email [email protected]
AS AN EXHIBITOR YOU HAVE A LEGAL REQUIREMENT TO ASSESS RISKS
APPERTAINING TO YOUR PARTICIPATION IN ANY EXHIBITION. THE RISK
ASSESSMENT FORM IS INTENDED AS GUIDANCE ONLY AND COMPLETION
DOES NOT ABSOLVE YOU FROM YOUR LEGAL RESPONSIBILITIES OR
TRANSFER THEM TO SWINK EVENTS.
Assessment and Control of Risk Areas
The vast majority of activities carried out are of low risk and a general common sense
approach to safety will be sufficient to control this risk. Please refer to the Risk
Assessment form in the forms section.
Risk Assessment Procedure
An assessment of risk is nothing more than a careful examination of all works associated
items, which could cause harm to people. The aim is to make sure that no one gets hurt
or becomes ill by taking all practicable, foreseeable precautions to prevent them.
‘Hazard’ means anything that can cause harm (e.g. chemicals, electricity).
‘Risk’ is the chance, great or small, that someone will be harmed by the hazard.
The important things to be decided are whether the hazard has the potential to cause
harm, and whether it is covered by satisfactory precautions so that the risk of causing
harm is adequately controlled.
43
This must be checked when assessing the risks. For instance, electricity can kill but the
risk of it doing so is remote, provided that ‘live’ components are insulated and metal
casings properly earthed.
Assessing Hazard
Don’t be overcomplicated. The hazards are comparatively few and straightforward.
Checking them is commonsense, but necessary. Some of them will have been assessed
already – for example, if toxic or dangerous chemicals are used, an Assessment should
already have been made of the risks to health and precautions to be taken under the
Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH). If so, consider them
‘checked’, and write that down when making a written assessment. For other hazards,
list machinery that could cause harm, or if there is an awkward entrance or stair where
someone could be hurt etc. If so, check that all reasonable precautions have been taken
to avoid injury.
Step 1 – Look for the Hazards
Walk around your stand and look afresh at what could reasonably be expected to cause
harm. Ask your staff what they think; they may have noticed things, which are not
immediately obvious. Manufacturers’ instructions or datasheets can also help identify
hazards and put risks in their true perspective.
Step 2 – Decide Who Might Be Harmed, and How
Think about people who may not be aware of what equipment or activities are taking
place on your stand, e.g., visitors (including children), cleaners, contractors, etc. is there
is a chance they could be harmed?
Step 3 – Evaluate the Risks Arising From the Hazards and Decide Whether
Existing Precautions Are Adequate or More Should Be Done
Even after all precautions have been taken, usually some risk remains. Decide whether
the remaining risk is high, medium or low.
First, ask have all the things that the law requires been done? For example, there are
legal requirements on prevention of access to dangerous parts of machinery.
Then ask whether generally accepted industry standards are in place? But don’t stop
there – because the law also says that all that is reasonably practicable to keep the
workplace safe must be done.
The real aim is to make the risks as small as possible by adding to existing precautions
as necessary. More information about legal requirements and standards can be found in
the relevant HSE publication entitled Management of Health and Safety at Work:
Approved Code of Practice and Essentials of Health and Safety.
If something needs to be done, is it possible to:Get rid of the hazard altogether?
Control the risks so that harm is unlikely?
If you find a significant risk a more detailed Risk Assessment must be completed.
44
Step 4 – Record Your Findings
The Risk Assessment must be duly completed and signed. Please turn to the forms
section to complete this task.

PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE
GUIDANCE FOR EXHIBITORS
Please note that our terms and conditions require exhibitors to hold a minimum £2m limit of Public
Liability insurance. This protects you against legal claims for accidental injury to third parties
and/or for damage to third party property. This is not the same as Employers’ Liability insurance.
You may already have Public Liability insurance, however not all business policies cover events
taking place outside your business premises. If in doubt you should consult your insurance
provider.
Hiscox can provide Public Liability, Employers’ Liability, Cancellation and Abandonment and
Property covers for both exhibitors and event organisers.

online.
Important Note - Hiscox can insure exhibitors located within European Union countries, Norway
and Switzerland. Exhibitors from other countries must arrange insurance locally.
We are not permitted to advise you on any insurance matter. You are under no obligation to purchase insurance from Hiscox and may
choose to seek a quotation from other providers.

Record the contact details
for all visitors to your stand
Rent a small, lightweight laser scanner
from the registration desk.

visitors and let the scanner do the hard
work for you.
Your data is instantly ready for
marketing campaigns.
How they work
Every visitor is allocated a badge with a
unique barcode before entry to the
exhibition.
Simply scan each visitor that shows an
interest in your products or services.
This scanned data will then be emailed
to you after the event as an Excel file. It
will contain contact details such as
address, telephone, fax and email data
where available.
If you require additional scanners, please specify on the reverse of this form
and they will also be delivered to your stand.
With multiple barcode scanners, you can spend more time speaking with your
visitors and let the scanners do the hard work for you.

GUIDANCE NOTES
How to complete your Risk Assessment Form
All Risk Assessments should be a careful and studied examination of your activities ensuring that your build-up, the open period and breakdown are achieved safely and
nothing occurs, which could cause harm to any person.
The following guidelines will assist you to make a basic Risk Assessment of your activities. If you are building a large or complicated stand, or are involved in unusual
activities during the exhibition, you may need to seek the assistance of a qualified Health and Safety Adjudicator.
Note 1
A hazard is anything that has the potential to cause harm, i.e., a workman falling from a ladder, dropping tools, moving large and heavy loads, etc.
Note 2
In this section you must include everyone who could be injured as a result of such activities, i.e., the workman, other people working on the stand, other exhibitors, porters
moving furniture, visitors, etc.
Note 3
Your own assessment of the risks. A risk is the likelihood of harm arising from a hazard. Use the columns to judge the risk and tick the appropriate boxes. If both
ticks are in the top boxes then you should not pursue the activity (it is too dangerous) and should seek an alternative way of completing the task. If both ticks are in the
centre boxes you will need to implement some form of control.
Note 4
You must record the steps you have taken to ensure nothing dangerous occurs. Your entry may read something like ‘Use of trained and qualified staff only, rope and post
area to restrict area, ensure staff trained in manual handling, etc.,’ (these examples are guidelines only).
Note 5
You carry some legal responsibility for any person working for you and acts or omissions. You must ensure that any contractors you use are competent and will
work in a safe manner. This you may do through requesting copies of their Health & Safety policy. If they cannot supply such documentation you would be wise not to use
them.
NB: As an exhibitor you have a legal requirement to assess risks appertaining to your participation in any exhibition. These forms are intended
as guidance only and completion does not absolve you from your legal responsibilities or transfer them to Swink Events LLP.
IMPORTANT: BLANKET ‘NO RISKS’ OR ‘N/A’ STATEMENTS ON YOUR FORM WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AND YOU WILL BE
REQUIRED TO RESUBMITT YOUR FORM.

To help you assess potential hazards at the event, please tick if you are planning any of the listed activities below on your stand. If you tick YES, for activity
listed, work along the page, detailing who is at risk from the activity, your assessment of the risk and how the risk will be controlled. To help you, some
controls measures have been suggested; however these are by no means comprehensive and are guidelines only. You must list your own comprehensive set
of controls for your particular set up. If you are using one of the example control measures given, please clearly indicate so. Please refer to the notes page
overleaf for additional guidance. The list of activities is not exhaustive and some blank rows have been added for your use if required. If required, please

Providing your own Food & Drink at HIC
Where Hospitality or Stand Catering is undertaken at HIC, the client or the client’s guests for consumption on the premises may bring no other food, wine, beer or spirits
into HIC, unless the prior written consent of the company has been obtained and a concession fee agreed.
Corkage – is the charge placed on wines, beers, liquor & soft drinks items brought into the venue that have been purchased elsewhere and not from the contracted
hospitality & stand caterer (Kudos).
This service encompasses storage, chilling, delivery and supply of appropriate disposable glassware. If you are using alcoholic beverages, Kudos will become the licensee for
your event and you will be briefed on the relevant licensing legislation. Delivery of drinks must be with us 3 days before the event. There are no minimum quantities for this
service.
Champagne £15.00 per bottle
Sparkling Wine £12.50 per bottle
Wines £10.00 per bottle
Spirits £30.00 per bottle
Beers £1.50 per can/bottle
Soft drinks £1.50 per can/bottle
Water & Juice £2.00 per litre
Contract buy out – stand holders
To cater for yourselves with no input or involvement from Kudos you can take advantage of our ‘contract buy out’ option. In taking this option all food hygiene regulations
become your responsibility. If serving alcohol by law you will need to provide a personal license holder, who will be responsible for the activities on the stand. A copy of the
license will need to be provided. Kudos will not be responsible in any way for food safety or licensing regulations.

We will happily work with you to provide a bespoke hospitality package in order for something special to be offered to your clientele.
To place your order

your order, Kudos Catering (UK) Limited will issue you with an invoice for which payment is required within 7 days.
As we do not operate a sale or return policy, all items ordered prior to the event will be delivered to your stand in full and invoiced in full.
Subject to availability additional items can be delivered during the show. All additional items must be signed for upon delivery and paid for before the end of the show.
Delivery
All stand orders are free of delivery charge. Due to volume of orders received, it is not always possible to guarantee a specific time. If a specific time is required the delivery
time will be approximate by one hour either side of the requested time.

returned to the stand order office.
