The world’s largest 3 day Feng Shui Event is happening this year between 8th and 10th August at the ExCel Centre in London’s Docklands.
Exhibitor Information page
From our research and with the help of our PR agency, we are expecting between 10,000 and 15,000 public visitors to the show. Early indications are that the majority (70%) will be women and the overall profile being ABC1s (affluent and educated). In the main they will be homeowners with an interest in alternative lifestyles and healthy living and whose interests will be served well by the conference programme. Our PR is aimed at the national and regional press, the glossies as well as radio and television exposure. Tickets will be on sale on the door at £25 per head, family tickets (2 adults and 3 children) at £50, with concessions for advanced ticket sales.
“Our aim is too create a Feng Shui experience so that the visitor can discover, buy and learn as well as will be able to see, taste, smell, touch and hear the atmosphere of the orient all under one roof”
The opening ceremony will herald Lion Dancers and firecrackers; Dragon Boat Races and a whole host of entertainment to ensure the visitor’s experience will be unique. Inside, occupying a floor space the size of a full sized football pitch there will be over one hundred exhibitors displaying Feng Shui cures and enhancers, Chinese art, Practitioners, ornaments, face readers, Chinese astrologers. There will be a full size house and garden built to exact Feng Shui principals, guided tours by a Practitioner will be held throughout the day, there will never be a better opportunity to learn so much under one roof. At the far end of the hall there will be an oriental food court bustling with different foods and refreshments to ensure all tastes are catered for. There will also be opportunities to see exhibitors demonstrate their skills, crafts and products in a demonstration area. To allow time for parents with toddlers and young children to gain the most from the experience we have organised TWO crèches: one for toddlers and young children, the other an Adult crèche for the more reticent visitors! For the visitor it will be the most unbelievable chance to experience Feng Shui first hand, pick up ideas and tips, choose cures and enhancers, learn all about the different schools of Feng Shui.
Whilst we would love to have an ‘all welcome’ policy, research has shown that it would not be attractive to the visitor to have a hall packed with one hundred ‘three legged toad’ vendors in the same way as it would to restrict it to Feng Shui Practitioners. We are aiming for a mix and when we feel we have sufficient of any business type, we will restrict further applications for this show. We hope you understand the reasons behind this decision. Our aim is to populate the event with a good range of products and services that we know the visitor will be interested in. As we open for bookings, we will publish a list of stands available together with a list of exhibitors. Our PR agency is keen to promote any exhibitor activity and will seek to gain as much coverage for our exhibitors prior to the event. As soon as you have confirmed and you wish us to start publicising your attractions, please let us know. It’s all included as part of our service. Stands are available with three options:
(a) Space Only (b) Shell Scheme (c) Package
(a) Space Only:
You literally ‘rent’ the space in the hall. Everything from walls, furniture, carpeting and electrics are your responsibility and allows you the most flexibility. All designs must be submitted for clearance with the Health & Safety Executive. We can advise you should you wish. These stands start from £150 per square metre.
(b) Shell Scheme:
Walls, carpets and fascia boards with your company name and stand number are provided. These are the most convenient types as you turn up with your products, graphics and furniture and you’re ready to go. We can advise you on furniture hire, electrics, floral displays etc. These start from £185 per square metre.
(c) Package Stands:
We have negotiated ‘extras’ on your behalf, and for stands of a minimum of 12 square metres we will provide a complete exhibitor package to include chairs, tables, lights, electrical sockets, carpets and extra visitor tickets. Prices are from £185 per square metre. We can discuss specifics to ensure you get exactly the right package.
We also have limited availability for opportunities for speakers to get involved with the conference programme. There will also be chances to get involved with sponsorship of our feature areas, the crèche and food court and naturally there will be a show catalogue which can carry your message. All exhibitors will get an entry in the official catalogue as part of their involvement.
NEW TO EXHIBITING?
We will organise an exhibitor workshop in advance of the show for experienced and novice exhibitors to help them make the most of the show. It will outline ways of getting more people to your stand, how to maximise on your investment and how to take advantage of the services on offer at an event like this. Full details will be released nearer the time.
Subject to local authority and venue clearance, the show will open on Friday and Saturday between 10:30am until 8:00pm and Sunday from 10:00am until 6:00pm. Exhibitors will have time on the Thursday to set up and all stands must be cleared by Sunday evening.
We promise to do everything we can to help you get the most from this event. We have assembled what is probably the best team to work on this show and with your help we will ensure it is a great success for visitors and exhibitors alike. If there is anything you feel we should be doing, please talk to us – we listen and are willing to act!
