This page is to give exhibitors (and potential exhibitors) information about the BioTrinity 2014 "Connect for Growth" Zone. All relevant documents, including an Exhibitor's Manual and Checklist are available to view and download at the bottom of this page. Once an exhibition stand is confirmed, an email with all the important confirmation documents will also be attached.
The conference, taking place at Novotel London West, will span four floors in total:
Ground Floor: The "Connect for Growth" Zone will host exhibitons, all refreshments and catering, Connect for Drinks Reception on Tuesday 13th May and all informal networking opportunities.
Mezzanine Floor: Showcases and Workshops will be held on this floor.
First Floor: The Main Plenary Hall and all partnering booths are located here, as well as the Big London Networking Party on Tuesday 13th May.
Second Floor: The top floor will accomodate for all Sponsor partnering rooms, a Sponsor Quiet Lounge and the UKTI Business Lounge. Rooms are still available to hire.
Two full partnering registrations are inclusive in your package and give you access to the gold standard private partnering system and all additional networking and social events. Please ensure you have an up-to-date company profile on the system as this will be seen by all the registered delegates. The partnering system gives you access to information about all the registered delegates and the option to ask them to meet with you. If you require help with the partnering system, see our helpful guide under Partnering. You can regsiter for your full pass here.
Exhibitors and sponsors also have the option to purchase additional Exhibitor-only passes, at £399 + VAT (OBN member rate) or £499 + VAT (non members). You will be sent a separate form with your confirmation documentation, also available to download at the bottom of this page. You should complete a form for each pass needed.
Exhibitor-only passes include:
Registration will open for all delegates and exhibitors to collect their name badges during the following times:
Set up: Monday 12th May from 14:30-17:30 (All stands must be set up by 17:30)
Breakdown: Wednesday 14th May 16:30-17:00 (unless advised otherwise by OBN)
NB: It is the Exhibitor's responsibility to ensure they have the correct power and equipment for their allocated space. If you have specific requirements, please ensure that arrangements are made well in advance.
A 3amp electrical supply is supplied. It is the exhibitor's responsibility to ensure they have sufficient power for their equipment. All the electrical sockets are standard UK.
Exhibitors can NOMINATE THEIR STAND number as the location of their partnering meetings. This will allow you to have all your marketing material or presentations for demonstration purposes when you meet, but please note these meetings will not be private. Please understand that for logistical and technical reasons this has to be an “all or nothing” decision, with no exceptions and is applicable to all company registrations, not individuals. More information is available in the Exhibitor Manual.
