As this is a trade show you may take orders and payments (credit card, cash) at the show, but goods must NOT be traded/delivered/handed over at the show. Stock deliveries must be made off-site at a later date. You can, however, sample products at the show. From 3pm - 4pm on Saturday 17 June, you may sell DISPLAY stock directly from your stand to help speed up your bump out process and reduce transport costs.
To ensure a smooth bump in, National Media has engaged GEL Events to assist with the loading dock management. The loading dock has limited space and cannot sustain unnecessary use. We have implemented the following restrictions on the dock usage to ensure a smooth bump in and out for all exhibitors and contractors.
The loading dock for Design Show Australia is: Door 6, Bays 11-16.
The loading dock for ArchiBuild Expo is: Door 9, Bays 17-18.
Vehicle/truck access to the loading dock is via Normanby Road. Access is strictly reserved for exhibitors who have booked via GEL Events. High visibility vests and enclosed shoes must be worn at all times whilst on the loading dock. If you do not have a loading dock booking your vehicle will be sent down to the carpark or be required to wait offsite until space becomes available. You will only be able to book loading dock access in correspondence with your stand being built/ready for occupation.
Vehicles may only remain on the loading dock for a maximum of 20 minutes for loading/unloading purposes due to the high volume of vehicles.
Fees apply for the use of the forklift. If you require use of a forklift, you must pre-book this with GEL Events via Forms To Action > Loading Dock & Forklifting Bookings.
Vehicles on the dock must not exceed 10kmh and hazard lights must be active at all times and whilst engines are running.
Your courier can drop off your shipment whether you are present or not, ONLY if you have given authority that your delivery can be left without a signature. We accept no responsibility for goods left without you collecting and securing them.
GEL Events are able to provide forklifting services (fees and bookings are required), pallet jacks and trolleys (free of charge) to exhibitors during bump in and bump out. Please note that these services are on a first come first served basis.
We do not allow balloons at Design Show Australia or ArchiBuild Expo due to sustainability concerns. Please choose alternative decorations that are more environmentally friendly so we can collectively reduce our impact.
