**ART DROP OFF into Secure Store Area ONLY on Thursday 18 November (1600 - 1800hrs)

We have made provision for art to be delivered into our secure store area on Thursday 18 November between 4pm and 6pm ONLY.  If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, you must complete the Art Drop Off Request Form. However, before doing so, please note the following important information

  • Access is only permitted into our secure store area and under no circumstances will exhibitors have access to stands until Friday 19 November at 08:00 when build up commences (see timetable above).
  • Deliveries may be made via the Manchester Central loading bay off Albion Street (see map)
  • The loading bay will only be open between 4pm and 6pm and, unfortunately, there is no flexibility on this.
  • Vehicle paperwork will be issued by the Manchester Central traffic team on arrival (ie. there are no vehicle passes to be completed in advance).
  • All personnel (including couriers) must have completed the ‘Acknowledgement of Site Induction’ form which is available in your ezone.
  • Couriers must have the necessary manpower and equipment to deliver into the secure store area.
  • All personnel entering the halls during this period must wear hi-visibility clothing (vests)


PLEASE NOTE: We regret that we are unable to allow access without prior knowledge (by completing Art Drop Off Request form) and completion of the Acknowledgement of Site Induction form.

WE MUST REMIND ALL EXHIBITORS THAT ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 16 YEARS IS NOT PERMITTED INTO THE HALLS AT ANY POINT DURING BUILD-UP OR BREAKDOWN.

*** Please note that there will be no admittance to exhibitors for the dressing of stands after 16:00 on Friday 19 November. All stands must be fully dressed and the aisles clear of all packing and equipment by 1630 on Friday 19 November. This is to ensure that the stands and aisles can be cleaned and the show approved for opening by the venue's Fire and Health and Safety officers.

Duty of Care Statement

Exhibitors must take reasonable care for their own health and safety as well as that of others who may be affected by their actions (or omissions) at work.

It is the duty of each Exhibitor to ensure so far as is reasonably practicable the health and safety at work of all their employees, contractors, visitors, fellow exhibitors and others who may be at risk as a result of their work activities during the exhibition’s tenancy.

Exhibitors must not bring minors under the age of 16 into the exhibition halls during build-up or breakdown.
