EXHIBITOR BULLETIN – MARCH 16TH 2020

Thank you for choosing to exhibit at the show this year. Rather than send out tons of emails and reminders, this web page can be used as a point of reference for you.

Coronavirus Update

Please read this carefully

The ABTT Theatre Show continues to prepare for the successful delivery of the 42nd show on June 10-11 at Alexandra Palace whist keeping a close watching brief on the coronavirus outbreak. At all times, the health and wellbeing of our exhibitors and visitors will take priority and we will be following advice and guidance from the Government, Health Agencies and The London Borough of Haringey, owners of Alexandra Palace. 

Due to the challenging business environment as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak, we will do our best to accommodate our exhibitors and the investment they have made. We are fully aware of the difficulties spreading across the industry and will be looking after our exhibitors wherever possible. Final invoices will be issued in April and if any exhibitors have cashflow issues, we simply ask that you pick up the phone and talk to us.

At this point in time, we take the view that cancellation is unlikely. The only form that cancellation can take is when The London Borough of Haringey close Alexandra Palace. As it currently stands, it is a possibility but not a probability. One of the considerations that makes a difference with the ABTT Theatre Show is that it is a national and not an international event.

If the show does not take place this summer, the investment made by exhibitors will NOT be lost. All invoices paid will be rolled over and be credited against exhibiting in 2021. This very important measure would underpin the future of not just the ABTT Theatre Show but the continued work of the ABTT as a functioning organisation.

As per our terms and conditions, exhibitors who have booked and decide to cancel before March 27th will forfeit 50% of their booking fee. If exhibitors cancel after that date, payment will have to be made in full. 

We are enormously grateful for the continued support from our community of exhibitors and look forward to seeing you all again in June. We have a full floor plan and an interesting programme of peripheral activity.

EVENT PROGRAMME

The ABTT Theatre Show is building a strong reputation for the programme of avant to accompany the exhibition. A number of seminars, product demonstrations and training sessions have been planned for this year and the schedule is filling up fast. WE DO NOT CHARGE EXHIBITORS for the use of our additional spaces where an overt benefit is being offered to visitors.

If you want to take part in any way, please get in touch sooner rather than later. It is very much a case of first come first served.

EMAIL FOOTERS

A good way of drawing attention to your presence at the show is to use graphic fosters on your corporate emails. We have a selection of files in Graphic Downloads on this page: FILE DOWNLOADS & UPLOADS
