Exhibition Floor Plan


Due to high interest additional sites have been added to the ‘Marble Foyer’.  Scattered delegate seating and drink stations will be located in this area however catering buffets will only be located in the Banquet Hall.

Exhibition Allocations

Catering will be situated to maximise delegate flow throughout the exhibition. The exhibition floor plan is subject to change without notice. The floor plan is not to an exact scale, but accurately represents the relative position and sizes of exhibition spaces. All corner booths will have the side wall removed unless expressly requested to remain.

Site Selection: You will be asked to enter your top three preferences when booking your site.  Sponsor exhibitors will have first choice of corner sites.  If a corner site is unsold by the time of the conference it will be offered to standard exhibitors in order of time of booking.

Flooring: Sites 29 to 31 in the Marble foyer will be on polished concrete.  The Banquet Hall is made up of polished timber (sites 01 to 17) or blue carpet (sites 18 to 28).

Ceiling Heights:  Standard height of all booth structures is 2.4m.  Custom sites please keep in mind the ceiling in the Banquet Hall over the blue carpet area is max 3m (this affects sites 18 to 28).  Site located in the Marble Foyer also have some height restrictions so if building a custom site in this area please check with us.

Site Numbering:  Please do not advertise your site number to delegates until the final floor plan is released.  Unsold sites will be remove and the plan renumbered before the conference.
