Venue

On campus – Chancellors' Building Level 1 Foyer.

Fair layout plan

Your stand numbers will be available upon arrival. Your pitch space is 3m wide x 2m deep, no height restriction. Trestle tables provided are 1.8m long x 76cm high – please bring a tablecloth if using one.

Couriers/deliveries and exhibitions companies

No deliveries before the day of the Fair please – we cannot accept any deliveries into our office or the Fair venue before the day, nor hold onto any stands/goods for collection the following day.

If you are using a courier to bring your stand/other goods, they may only deliver direct to the venue on the day of the fair after 11.15am and collect before 5.30pm as we cannot offer security of goods later than this. Please forward them these details and ensure that all goods are labelled with the client (not courier) name and FAO Victoria Houston.

If you are using CES, Ian Wilson, Impressions or MSI, we will liaise directly with them regarding directions and your stand locations.

All goods must be delivered directly to the pitch you are allocated – not to the venue door – and any cars must be moved to the car park as soon as unloaded. Vehicles must not remain in the unloading area whilst stands are erected, as we need to allow others to gain access.

Unloading

If your own staff are bringing your stand or other goods in a car, please follow the signage on the day for Chancellors' Building, Employer Team staff will be on hand to assist you from 12.30pm. You must move cars to the East Car Park (or other if full, please ring Victoria on 07891 790132) as soon as you have unloaded.

Parking

Parking on campus is at a premium and spaces cannot be reserved. If you have not booked a parking space in advance, then please use public transport, and try to avoid bringing additional cars onto campus as it will be difficult to find a parking space. Parking fines may be issued (by an external company) to any cars who park in the wrong area/without a permit. Permits for second vehicles cannot be used. If you decide to bring a second car you must use the P&D area – the machines use Just Park text and App. See the above Travel page linked for information and prices.

Please ensure you enter campus via the main entrance off Claverton Down Road. Use East Car Park as signposted. One permit, if requested will be emailed to your booking contact no later than one week before the fair. You may use any permit space other than the exclusions listed on the permit provided, and you must bring and display this permit in your windscreen on the day.

You may have to use the East overflow section of the car park or be redirected to another car park and, if you are bringing your own goods, it will be best to unload prior to parking as you will be further away from the venue.

Lunch (not included for 2022 fair)

On arrival, please collect your Welcome Pack. This will include lunch and drinks tickets for the number pre-booked. We cannot accept requests on the day for additional lunches, but there are various catering outlets/shops available nearby on campus, for you to purchase any items. Water is also provided using a fountain – please bring your own refillable bottle.

WiFi

WiFi is now accessible campus wide. Please see https://www.bath.ac.uk/guides/connecting-to-wi-fi/ before the day.

Thank you again for participating and we look forward to seeing you on the day.
