Allocation of Exhibitor Space(s)
Stand space(s) will be allocated by Hants Events, although every effort will be made to accommodate an Exhibitors request(s) this cannot be guaranteed, we reserve the right to assign space as we determine beneficial to this event, taking into consideration all other Exhibitors and their requirements but particularly the impact any requests may make on the overall event.
If an Exhibitor is not present by 9:30 am which is 30 minutes of the event start time, they forfeit their allocated space. How the space is then allocated is at the sole discretion of Hants Events. All exhibitors agree to only occupy the space they have selected and paid for on their booking form. If the Exhibitor, for whom the space was originally allocated to, arrives after 9:30 am they are no longer entitled to this space and may be offered an alternative space, possibly differing in size, if available and at the sole discretion of Hants Events. No refunds may be given.
The grounds provided are perfect for open & covered stalls (weather permitting) the spaces are 3 x 3 meters. Exhibitors must have their own gazebos with all displays & equipment to fit within the allocated space provided. These must be in accordance to health & safety regulations as well as strong, sturdy & grounded which allow patrons to move around safely & securely as well as shelter from the elements. All outdoor exhibitors must provide their own tables, chairs & lighting as electricity is not supplied. Generators are allowed only with written permission & will need certification. Vehicles (not on display) must be removed from the exhibiting area by 9:30 am. No vehicles can be driven or moved around the exhibiting area during the event.
All vendors must have relevant equipment certificates and permissions to attend with fire safety equipment. These must be available for inspection on the day. Rubbish bins must be provided and removed at the end of the day.
It's imperative to us for the event to be busy! One method to achieve great exposure is using the largest platform of promotion being social media to advertise our events. Our Facebook pages have thousands of followers and we invest in targeted sponsored adverts, to find people interested in pets & animals, exhibitors and families. The Hants Events Web Site has lots of traffic encouraging bookings which can be made directly on the our site. This ensures visitors a smooth experience and avoids leaving to a third party tickets agency. A minimum of ten thousand leaflets are printed and delivered around the area. Posters are sent to local related businesses, services and areas of interest. The event is advertised in local magazines also throughout pet and general event advertising sites. We also hold many other events throughout the year allowing us to promote the wedding fair at these throughout the year.

If an Exhibitor has to leave the event at any given time during the fairs operating times, for a non-emergency related reason, prior notification must be given to Hants Events in writing which may mean that Hants Events relocates the Exhibitors positioning within the event, to lessen any impact on the Fairs ambience and as not to cause any general disruption to other Exhibitors. No refunds will be given if the new space allocated is smaller than the Exhibitor originally booked. Please note that apart from in an unavoidable emergency situation (where we would generally ask that the Exhibitor leave their display intact if at all possible and we will oversee dismantling and secure storage) any Exhibitor who opts to ignore our policy regarding packing away early, will be under scrutiny in future bookings.
